This paper reviews literature on teenage contraceptive behavior and teenage contraceptive decision making. The paper describes the persistence of a sexual double standard in terms of moral motivation to use contraception and in terms of the relative lack of communication about contraception among young partners. The implications of a research, theoretical, and applied neglect of the male's contribution to contraceptive behavior are discussed.
