Conclusion Understanding Men Despite the fact that we live in a society that appears to be dominated by men in powerful positions, the reality is that many individual men do not feel empowered in their lives. Because the traditional male role requires men to hide more vulnerable emotions, they often have few outlets for emotional expression. In comparison to women, higher rates of alcoholism, drug addiction, violence, and successful suicide suggest that many men "act out" rather than verbally share their emotional pain. Some may argue that all of psychology is the psychology of men.
Previous research suggests that low self-esteem and increased levels of depression are associated with a variety of risky sexual behaviours including poor contraception use, a high number of sexual partners and sexual partners with a risky history.
Although previous studies have primarily focused on the effects of risky sexual behaviour on adolescents, this research aims to analyse its relationship in adulthood.
So far no research into risky sexual behaviour and its mental health consequences has been carried out in Britain, a gap which this study aims to fill.
This study used a total of participants, The average age of participants was The questionnaire contained questions about previous risky sexual encounters, for example one-night stands and contraception usage.
Sexual Behaviour and Attitudes questionnaire. This study found that depression, both self-reported and previously diagnosed, was associated with a variety of risky sexual behaviours including poor contraception use and having a sexually transmitted disease.
Risky sexual behaviour was not found to correlate with low self-esteem; however, those of high self-esteem were significantly less likely to have risky sex. Early sexual initiation was not associated with depression but led to an increased subjective estimate of likelihood of risky sexual behaviours in the future.
Males were found to be significantly more likely to engage in risky sex both with poor partner choice and infrequent use of contraception.
Those of a low economic status were particularly susceptible to risky sexual behaviour. Risky sexual behaviour can have many negative consequences both in adolescence, as previous research has shown and, as this study reports, in later life.
Poor contraceptive use and a poor choice of sexual partner can all severely impact mental health reducing self-esteem and increasing depression.
The exact relationship between risky sexual behaviour and mental health is unclear; however, it is hoped that future longitudinal studies can improve our knowledge on this area. Education needs to be improved to reduce the number of sexually transmitted diseases and other risks that adolescents in particular may encounter.
This can be carried out in schools and through a variety of media outlets. If this is achieved risks to both physical and mental health can be reduced. Other sources are acknowledged by footnotes giving explicit references. A bibliography is appended.

An increased prevalence of diseases also means that they are likely to spread more rapidly, making it even harder to control the problem.
This study aims to investigate some factors that influence sexual behaviour and explain how these can affect both our sexual health and mental health. It can also help explain why we continue to behave a certain way.
From an evolutionary point of view, males and females have evolved differently in order to accomplish their specific goals.
To establish what these goals are Buss and Schmitt in their Sexual Strategies Theory define two very different temporal durations for human mating, short-term and long-term.
For males the benefits of short-term mating focus on inseminating a number of fertile women.Zone’in Fact Sheet. A research review regarding the impact of technology on child development, behavior, and academic performance.
