ABSTRACT

The study examined the sexual behaviour and knowledge towards Sexually

Transmitted Diseases among students of senior Secondary Schools and university

in Akure, Ondo State.

The sexual behaviour of the respondents and their knowledge consisted the

dependent variables. While demographic characteristics of age, gender,

geographical location, marital status, religion, class, socio economic status,

family type and sex patterns consisted the independent variables. Ex-post facto

research design was adopted to collect the information required to test the

hypotheses of the study. A multi-stage sampling technique involving stratified,

purposive and random sampling techniques were used in the selection of

respondents for this study.

In the first stage, two urban and two rural secondary schools were selected

purposely from each of the two Local Government Areas (LGAs) of Akure north

and south Local Government Areas respectively, making a total of eight

secondary schools. The second stage involved the selection of 269 students

randomly selected from the secondary schools and 111 students were selected

from the University of Technology Akure making a total of 380 respondents in all,

to collect the needed data.

A set of well-structured questionnaire was administered on the respondents on

issues bordering on their demographic characteristics, sexual behaviour, practices

and knowledge about sexual education in schools, knowledge about prevention

and control of sexually transmitted diseases.

Descriptive statistics of frequency tables, percentages, standard deviation and

standard error were used for the analysis of data generated. Econometric analysis

involving multiple regression analysis was also used to analyze the data

generated. Results of the analysis showed that age of respondents, marital

status, type of settlement/accommodation and number of sexual partners of the

respondents were observed to significantly determine whether respondents had

sex before marriage. A significant (at 5% level) F-value of 130.315 and an R2 of

0.906 implied that about 90% variability in the dependent variable were

explained by the independent variables. It was also observed that an inverse

relationship existed between age of respondents and their sexual behaviour i.e.

younger respondents were more sexually active than their older counterparts.

The major hypothesis and the two sub- hypotheses were subjected to descriptive

statistical analysis. It is therefore recommended that age (i.e. the adolescent

group) should be considered in any policy measure designed to enlighten the

citizens about Sexually Transmitted Diseases. Also it is recommended that sound

moral teachings should be promoted in schools and homes. Also religious leaders

and teachers have duty to teach and help the adolescents on sound moral

conducts in society.
