Abstract: Purpose: First vaginal sex is constructed as a significant event imbued with cultural relevance. Voluminous literature documents cultural, social, religious, and psychological influences on first coitus. Comparably little is known about first non-coital behaviors or how healthcare providers can use these behavioral patterns to support adolescents' healthy sexual development. Accordingly, this study prospectively explored changes in young women's emotions at first and subsequent non-coital events.
