Teenagers tend to engage in risky sexual behavior primarily because they:
1. Feel invincible
2. Lack factual information
3. Emulate poor social models
4. Possess immature decision-making skills
Adolescents tend to think they are invincible and do not expect ‘bad things’ to happen to them. While the other options can be factors in some teens’ decisions to engage in unprotected sex, the age-group generally lacks the insight that they are not invincible and that they will suffer the consequences of poor decision making.
