El objetivo de este estudio es evaluar la relación existente entre el género y el sexo con el comportamiento sexual de los adolescentes. La muestra se compuso de 815 adolescentes (M= 15,65, DT= 1,42). Los instrumentos de evaluación utilizados fueron el BEM Sex Role Inventory, el Sexual Opinion Survey, el cuestionario de percepción de riesgo de Bayés y un cuestionario diseñado para el estudio. Los resultados pusieron de manifiesto que la mayoría de los jóvenes no se acomodan a los estereotipos de género tradicionales, definiéndose como andróginos (34,4%). Son los/as adolescentes que se definen como andróginos o masculinos los que más conductas sexuales realizan, y los que más erotofílicos se muestran. Se señala la necesidad de incluir la variable género como categoría de análisis en las investigaciones sobre conducta sexual.

Influence of the sex and gender in the sexual behavior of adolescents. The aim of this study is to evaluate the relation between gender and sex with the sexual behavior of adolescents. The sample comprised 815 teenagers (M= 15.65, Sd.= 1.42). The assessment instruments were the BEM Sex Role Inventory, the Sexual Opinion Survey, the Questionnaire of Risk Perception of Bayés and a questionnaire designed for the study. The results revealed that the majority of adolescents do not match the traditional gender stereotypes, defining themselves as adrogynes (34.4%). The teenagers who are defined as adrogynes or masculine carry out more sexual behaviors, and who display more erotophília. The need to include the variable «gender» as a category of analysis in research on sexual behavior is indicated.
