Abstract: Recently, sexual behavior of adolescents and related problems has become the scope of numerous cases of scientific research carried out in Lithuania. They reflect developmental trends of adolescent sexual relationships. The issue of adolescent sexual experience is becoming increasingly acute due to the increasing number of sexually active adolescents and due to constantly decreasing age periods of adolescents having sexual experience. Early sexual experience is related with different health problems (adolescent pregnancy, sexually transferred infections, drug abuse and psychical health problems). A frequent outcome of early sexual relations is juvenile pregnancy of girls. The object of the research is sexual behavior of 11- 12th form school learners. The aim of the present article is to disclose interrelationships among adolescent sexual behavior, psychoe-motional states and risk behavior. The objectives of the research: 1. To distinguish trends of the spreading of adolescent sexual relations in age and gender groups. 2. To disclose interrelations between adolescent psychoemotional states and early sexual experiences. Research sample characteristics and methods applied. The research involved 11 - 12lh form school learners from general education schools located in regions of Vilnius, Kaunas, Klaipeda, Siauliai, Panevezys, Aly-tus, Marijampole, Utena, Taurage and Telsiai. The main method applied during the research was anonymous questionnaire-based surveying. 1035 school learners aged 16 - 19 (including 385 boys and 650 girls) took part in the research.
