ABSTRACT
Participants were college students (602 female, 313 male) attending four Louisiana state universities. The instrument contained 27 sexual knowledge (SexK) items and 18 items assessing previous sexuality education and its perceived quality. Group SexK mean percentage score was only 55.39(SD=15.59). Statistical differences on SexK were found on gender, race, year in college and previous sexuality education. Participants perceptions about the quality of their previous HIV/ AIDs and S TD sexuality education were inversely proportionate to their HIV/AIDS and STD knowledge scores. Results clearly, demonstrate the need for pre-college and college sexuality education programs.
