Late adolescence and young adulthood reflect times of development and transition. Adolescents go through significant changes in cognitive, social, and moral development. Additional experiences that influence both religious identity and sexual identity continue through late adolescence and young adulthood. This dissertation is an exploratory pilot study which investigated the experience of compulsive sexual behavior among Christian college students/young adults who experience same-sex attraction. Participants were drawn from a larger study in which they completed an on-line survey consisting of questions on the topic of campus climate, early childhood experiences, emotional/sexual experiences, family background/context, disclosure of same-sex attraction to others, and religion/spirituality. Qualitative content analysis was used to identify themes of compulsive sexual behavior among the participants. Intentions for the results of the pilot study are to assist Christian college administrators in assessing and determining the needs of students who experience compulsive sexual behavior in addition to same-sex attraction.
