Let’s Talk About Sex…

Year: 2023

Presenter Name: Mary Cannon

This study aimed to look at the correlation between previous sex education received by the participants, the actual comprehensive knowledge of each participant, and then their attitudes towards sex positivity. The participants were directed to a survey that first tested their comprehensive sex education knowledge and then their sex positivity and finally some demographic questions. By comparing the results of participants using factor analysis the implications are likely to promote a more comprehensive, inclusive, and educational sex education program. Everyone should have the right to education and knowledge that allows them to make well-informed and good decisions for their health and well-being, this including sexual health and wellness. Preliminary results will be presented, but we predict to see a positive correlation between comprehensive sex knowledge and sex positivity.
