Abstract: Purpose: Public health risk reduction efforts commonly focus on avoiding multiple-partner relationships, as they can be associated with increased sexual risk behaviors (e.g. inconsistent condom-use). During adolescence, however, young people normatively participate in different romantic/sexual relationships – some of which occur simultaneously (e.g. dating two people). Since emerging relationships support learning to manage emotional and behavioral aspects of sexuality, it is possible that different types of relationships confer specific developmental skills. We compared day-to-day emotional and behavioral interaction differences between adolescent women's and men's single and multiple partner relationships.
