Sexual promiscuity, as it relates to perceptions of parenting practices, self-concept, and locus of control were examined. Multiple regression analyses provided a pattern of relationships between promiscuity and dimensions of parenting practices. Self-concept did not predict promiscuous behavior; however, results for locus of control and promiscuity indicated main effects.
