Background: two attitudes were considered about sexual practice; one is centered in the reproduction, attaching to as a natural thing and intolerance to different expressions of sexuality. The other view according to prevent damage and sexual practices without guilt, bashful attitudes and intolerance. Our objective was to evaluate the effect of an educational intervention, upon the development of the position on sexuality in health care providers. Methods: study of comparative intervention. Two experimental and one control groups with initial and final measurements were used. To compare two groups we used U of Mann-Whitney and Kruskal-Wallis. Results: the initial median of the experimental group 1 (GE1) and the witness (GT) were equals and significantly different to the experimental group 2 (GE2); in this one, only 31% of its members initiated without position, as opposed to the 100% of the GE1, and of 93 % of the GT. Conclusions: a high proportion of health care providers had not posture on sexuality. A position was not reached with the accumulating information; it develops through the questioning of their experience, being the educational perspective an essential factor to achieve it.
