I can actually support this finding with my daughter who became sexually active around 12 years old. Our situation was a bit different I had never married her dad, he is a great dad having always been in her life. She visited him all the time growing up still to this day, I had met a guy and we had a child. Her father got married and also had a child as well, shortly after at 12 she was already sneeking off with boys. I actually caught her having sex with two older boys at the same time ages 16 and 17 years old. Stopping her was impossible and our relationship became non stop arguments. I told her dad who talked with her, she ended up moving in with her dad. It's was tuff goings but she seemed to respond better to him than myself trying to disapline her. I realized how important it was having the support and communication with her dad. It didn't stop her from being very sexual but it helped, she's a wild one and her being a very attractive girl desent make it easier.
