Abstract


Purpose: This study explored the effect of adolescents’ sexual behavior on mental health according to behavior, demographic, and sex-related characteristics.

Methods: The 11th Korean Youth Risk Behavior Web-Based Survey wasconducted with 67,427 adolescents in South Korea. The hierarchical logistic regression was conducted to calculateodds ratios (ORs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) to investigate the relationship between adolescents’ sexualbehavior and mental health (i.e., stress, depressive state, suicidal ideation, and subjective happiness).

Results: Maleand female adolescents were more likely to experience stress, depression, and suicidal ideation if they were highschool students, low-income, smoked, drank, and/or had low academic achievement. Those with sexual experienceshowed higher levels of stress and depression and suicidal ideation rates and lower happiness. After controlling fora variety of covariates, including individual, family, and school factors, adolescents experienced sexual intercourseshowed significantly higher mental health status ORs than those who had not had intercourse.

Conclusion: It is necessary to provide an expanded health education program that combines healthy lifestyle and mental health promotionrather than fragmentary sex education to prevent negative physical and mental consequences of sexual intercourseamong adolescents.
