Source of Safe Sex Knowledge and Sexual Behavior Among University Students
AbstractThis study was developed to determine if there is a relationship between sources of safe sex practices and individual‟s sexual health behavior, specifically condom use and testing for STIs. Marijuana use and selfesteem were also examined in relation to condom use and testing for STIs. A self-report survey was administered to university students in California. Regression analysis revealed that those who had never used marijuana were more likely to report always using condoms (only among females), but less likely to report having been tested for STIs. Students who received primary information about safe-sex practices from a health care provider were more likely to report having been tested for STIs, while those who received such from the Internet were less likely to have been tested for STIs. Whites were more likely to have been tested than non-Whites, while Asian/Pacific Islanders were less likely to have been tested than non-Asians.
