Abstract: Introduction: The use of condom is a matter that teenagers approach, a fact that proves the antecipation of protection. However, this isn’t the same as asking a partner for its use – or, in other words, to reach an agreement on the method used. Negotiating the use of condom consists on the ability to persuade the partner into using this method during the couple’s interactions. Objectives: 1) to describe the emotional and sexual career, 2) the use of condom with the current partner, 3) the adoption of negotiation strategies, 4) the connection between emotional and sexual experience and the negotiation of the use of condom. Method: Transversal, quantitative and descriptive study. Convenient sample of 342 adolescents (41,5% boys) that attend high schools in the region of Évora. The inquiry regards sociodemografic aspects, emotional and sexual experiences and the Condom Influence Strategy Questionnaire (CISQ-S) scale of Noar (2003) with α of Cronbach varying between .949 and .783 on the subscales. Results: On the emotional and sexual career, practices reveal that 96,4% have touched their partner, 93,7% kissed him/her, 75,7% have had sexual contact above their clothes, 55% experienced sexual contact without penetration and 49,2% have had sexual intercourse with penetration. The negotiation strategies around the use of condom are of high number. Nevertheless, the more experienced had lower propensity to negociate the use of the method. Conclusions: We verify the need to redirect teenagers’s education towards the prevention of STI. Having a bigger number of sexual experiences is compatible with a more advanced age and a broader information, which would led into a propensity to negociate. However that isn’t what we veryfied. This suggests that subjects are taking some risks.
