Background: Risky sexual behavior in adolescents occurs in several cities in Indonesia, including in students in Islamic boarding schools. The phenomenon of risky sexual behavior is found in adolescents in Islamic boarding schools. This study aimed to analyze the factors that influence risky sexual behavior on a biopsychosocial basis.
Method: This study used a cross-sectional observational analytical design, explaining the relationship between variables through hypothesis testing. The samples of this study were adolescents from Islamic Boarding Schools in Probolinggo. A total of 346 adolescents were selected by multistage random sampling. Data were analyzed by Structural Equation Modeling-Partial Least Square (SEM-PLS) test.
Results: The results showed that the independent variables contributed 43.8% to risky sexual behavior, and the model had a good fit. There is a significant relationship between biological maturation, self-perceptions, perception of social and spiritual, and perceptions of sexual on risky sexual behavior.
Conclusion: The results of this study revealed that the model of risky sexual behavior viewed from risk-taking behavior and biopsychosocial theory could be used as a theoretical basis for carrying out activities related to health-promotive and preventive actions for adolescents, which focus on individual, family and peer group factors.
