ABSTRACT
Louisiana has higher than the national pregnancy and STD rates among unmarried individuals aged 15 to 24 years. The purpose of this study was to assess the sexual behaviors and protective sexual behavior intentions of college students attending four state universities and to assess differences on race, gender, year in school and previous sexuality education. Of 1,168 participants, 666 (57%) indicated having had sexual intercourse. About 13% never received sexuality education. Less than 50% rated it good. More White than African American students reported engaging in sexual behaviors. Previous sexuality education was statistically significantly related to selected protective sexual behavior intentions.
