Sexuality Educational Course and Effects on College Students
Undergrads who attend a college university in the southeastern portion of the United States participated in a study that looks at material related to a sexuality course completed by college students. The course touched on different subjects with most students feeling they were able to take away useful information. Researchers wanted to focus more on the positive benefits of the course. Because college sexuality courses offer vast amounts of information, many feel they may be able to help reduce common concerns related to sexual activity including pregnancy and sexual abuse.
Acts of Violence Facing Westminster Sex Workers
A recent research study reviews health and wellbeing risks facing prostitutes (also known as sex workers) in the Westminster area. The Sex Worker task force has found additional evidence that suggests more violence is being experienced among sex workers that has become a local and national concern. Such evidence suggests sex workers are more likely to experience violent robbery attempts, sexual assault and rape. The task force also believes that such violence is being committed at higher rates, yet victims may be too afraid to report it after it happens.
Responses Made by Female College Students Regarding Sexuality
A recent study reviews survey responses of female college students who completed Multidimensional Sexuality Questionnaire (MSQ) and Heterosexual Contact Scale (HCS) questionnaire. The questions were completed by women who may or may not initiate sexual contact with men. Women who didn’t initiate sexual contact scored lower on the MSQ in relation to factors such as sexual self-esteem and satisfaction. Factors such as geographic variations, anxiety and depression may be reasons why some scored lower than others.
Sex Behaviors of College Students
Researchers conducted a study that reviews recreational sexual activities engaged by college students. The study included reviewing sexual behaviors done for leisure verse pleasure. Data collected may help provide intervention methods to help young adults, such as college students, reduce risky sexual activities. Professionals such as sex educators, healthcare providers and even the general public may provide valuable information and awareness.
Understanding of Sexual Needs
Research data collected from Southern California University participants’ reviews needs of sexual intimacy. The study is also known as NSIS (Needs for Sexual Intimacy Scale). Different sexual issues were reviewed during the study including sexual desires, sexual attitudes and sexual awareness. Males were viewed to have higher levels of sexual needs and desires compared to females, but the study takes a look at different concepts on a broader scale. This is due to sexual intimacy being seen as more than just meeting desires and motivations, according to researchers.
