The dependent measures sex activity and condom intentions were submitted to multiple regression. More frequent substance use, less frequent use of decision-making skills, and being male increased intentions to engage in sexual behavior in the future. Those who intended to have sex before finishing high school were more likely to be boys, frequent smokers, and frequent alcohol users. These results indicate that social skills programs designed to prevent substance use and premature sexual activity may offer the best strategy in deterring problem behaviors and reducing the risk of AIDS. The confidential questionnaires elicited information on intentions to become sexually active and to use a condom and on gender, ethnicity, AIDS knowledge, cigarette smoking and alcohol use, and decision-making skills. PIP: Factors related to plans to engage in sexual activity and unsafe sexual behavior in the future were investigated to provide data necessary to design the most appropriate AIDS risk reduction interventions for young adolescents. The schools offered no AIDS prevention programs. AIDS knowledge, substance use, decision-making skills, gender, and ethnicity predicted intentions to engage in sexual behavior in the future.
