Excerpt

Although this study will probably be regarded as a "sex" study, I hope it will be read as a study in interpersonal relationships as well. Its purpose has been to find how premarital intercourse affects the relationships of the participants, utilizing a concern for the improvement of human associations as a value framework by which to guide the research procedures, and direct the analyses. Does premarital sexual experience create better or poorer interpersonal relationships, according to the standard for judging as set up in this study? Does it tend to strengthen or weaken relationships? These are some of the questions to be discussed in the following chapters.

The data in this study could never have been obtained without the understanding co-operation of the 200 young men who were my subjects. Fully aware of the use to which I intended to put the information they gave me, they nevertheless discussed their experiences with me objectively and in detail. In fact, many of them expressed the hope that their participation might smooth the way for those young people who will follow them, for many of the subjects, I am sure, felt that in some manner the fullness of life was escaping them.
