The aim of this work is to determine whether sociodemographic and psychosocial variables predict the kind of sexual experience. Participants were 1.897 adolescents. Ages ranging from 14 to 18 years old (M = 16.25; SD = 1.47). The results showed significant differences in the variables evaluated according to the type of sexual experience. In addition, sex, religion, parent educational level, internal locus control, self-efficacy, communication with mother, communication with friends and susceptibility were found to be significant predictors of type of sexual experience.
