The study aimed to assess peer acceptance, parent-adolescent communication, and religious orientation as predictors of sexual identity among adolescent girls in Jakarta. Participants were adolescent girls of 14 to 17 years (n=240). Sexual identity was measured using De Cecco-Shively Social Sex-Role Inventory (DSI) Scale (Shively, Rudolph, & Cecco, 1978). Peer Acceptance was measured using Peer Acceptance Scale (Newcomb, Bukowski, & Patte, 1993). Parent-adolescent communication was assessed using The Communication Parent-Adolescent Communication Scale (Barnes & Olson, 1985). Religious orientation was assessed using Age-Universal Scale (Gorsuch & Venable, 1983). Multiple regression analysis was used to assess whether peer acceptance, parent communication, and religious orientation significantly predicted adolescents girls sexual identity. The result showed that peer acceptance, parent communication, and religious orientation explained 18.1% of the variance in sexual identity (R=.181, F (8, 239)=6.378, p<.001). It was found that popular, rejected, open family communication, and intrinsic religious orientation significantly predicted sexual identity among adolescent girls. Open family communication (β=.207, p=.008) and intrinsic religious Orientation (β=.163, p=.024) were the most powerful predictors of sexual identity in adolescent girls. The implications of this study can be used for schools and parents and will be discussed in this article.
