Predictive Strength of Socio-cultural factors and Peer Pressure on Disposition to Condom Use among Female Youth in Three Geo-Political Zones in Nigeria
The necessity to extend frontier of knowledge on female condom use arises as a result of gap in literature in this aspect of sexuality. Quite a lot of studies have been conducted on female condom use disposition from the standpoint of personality variables which included; self-efficacy, optimism and religiosity among others to the extent that little attention has been paid to socio-cultural factors such as cultural belief and ethnicity as well as peer pressure. The impact of the socio-cultural milieu cannot be over-emphasized on behavioural issues that affect traditional value system and wellbeing of adolescents and youths. This invariably makes this study of interest to the researcher. Consequently, the researcher is of the view that there is the need to examine socio-cultural milieu and extend the coverage of the study beyond personality characteristics of female undergraduates in a particular geo-political zone of Nigeria. Hence, the need to beam searchlight on socio-cultural factors and peer pressure in relation to disposition to female condom use.
