This study was conducted to examine the correlation between father involvement and sociosexuality among emerging adults. Father involvement defined as the extent to which father’s participation in all aspects of a child’s life (Finley & Schwartz, 2004). Meanwhile, sociosexuality defined as individual differences of a willingness to have sex without a commitment (Penke & Asendopf, 2008). The instruments used in this study are Nurturant Fathering Scale (affective domain) and Father Involvement Scale (behavior domain) developed by Finley and Schwartz (2004) to measure father involvement and Revised Sociosexual Orientation Inventory (Penke & Asendorpf, 2008) to measure sociosexuality. Respondents of this study were 526 emerging adults (18-25 years old, 145 females & 381 males). There was a negative and significant relationship between father involvement, both on affective domain or behavioral domain, and sociosexuality on emerging adulthood. Further explanation will be discussed.
