Women's decisions about sex are significantly influenced by parenting skills from his father.

Thus the results of new research published this week in the journal Development and Psychopathology.

Bruce J. Ellis of the University of Arizona's Norton School of Family and Consumer Sciences, who led the study said, girls receive a lower quality of fatherhood tend to engage in risky sexual behavior in adolescence.

"Risky behavior such as unprotected sex, while drunk, frequently changing sexual partners and become pregnant before age 19 years," he said.

Ellis said that, based on both genetic and family dynamic effects, research shows that cause-effect relationship is different, depending on the father's attitude towards various types of sexual behavior of her daughter.

"We know that a rotten father and the sexual behavior of girls at risk are in line, but we do not know why and not known how. Our research intended to find out the problem," he said.

Ellis and his team developed a methodology to test the impact of sexual risk-taking father to his daughter.

They study of 59 women from families whose parents are divorced and his father left, compared with 42 pairs of intact families.
