Abstract (Summary)

This study was conducted to determine correlations between high-risk sexual behaviors of college students and sexual orientation. Many studies have compared the prevalence of high-risk sexual behaviors among college students to: gender, age and ethnicity; however few studies have addressed sexual orientation.

Eighty-five students volunteered to complete a demographic survey and sexual behavior questionnaire Findings concluded a significant relation between sexual orientation, number of partners engaged in sexual activity within a year, number of partners engaged in sexual intercourse within thirty days and method used for pregnancy prevention during last sexual encounter. In the majority of crosstabulations made, no significant relationship was established between sexual orientation and high-risk sexual behaviors. Future research will be required to determine additional correlations between variables. Future studies may be helpful in determining effective avenues of education, in order to properly address and minimize current knowledge deficits amongst college students and safe sexual practices.
