Abstract


Introduction. This article presents issues connected with sexual development of men in early adulthood. The special emphasis was placed on the description of a family as a source of sexual development, on behaviour in adolescence and on explanation of the influence of these factors on present sexual life. The results of the research illustrating the frequency and the course of the essential occurrences in the sexual development of the examined men were also presented in the article.
Material and methods. In order to verify the assumption of the research, the anonymous questionnaire method was conducted. Only the results which are statically relevant were chosen to be published in this study. The research group consisted on 123 men in early adulthood, aged 19-34.
Results and conclusions. The results of the research indicate the absence of a direct relation between an influence of parents in the sphere of sexual development and investigated forms of sexual activity in early adulthood. The majority of the examined men originate from families, in which there was a disinformation in the area of sexuality. There is a possibility that the studied men sought for patterns of identification outside the family. The conclusion is that between the family - influences and sexual life in adulthood, there is an intermediary variable in the form of occurrences in the period of adolescence. Masturbation plays a particular role in this process. The results of the research not only point at the significance of education in sexual development but also confirm both present opinions about transformations taking place in the frames of the institution of marriage and family, together with the views relating to the preference of extramarital forms of life based on the partnership among young men.
