THE SOCIOCULTURAL CONTEXT  OF ADOLESCENT SEXUAL  DEVELOPMENT  Western attitudes toward  sexuality often portray sexual  behavior as “dirty.”   Sexuality is typically viewed  in very moralistic terms.  Accordingly, we might expect  adolescents to experience  some degree of discomfort  about these issues.

WHAT DR. SCHWARTZ HAS  LEARNED ABOUT DEVELOPMENT  Development has normative trajectory that is  determined by a host of interacting biological,  environmental, and psychological processes.   Acceleration of this trajectory – attributes being  acquired before the optimal time often leads to  maladjustment. Likewise, delays in the acquisition of specific  attributes can be problematic.  Exposure to individuals who are at later stages  in the trajectory is likely to be associated with  risk.
