Changing Sexual Attitudes

A report on High School students’ experience and views on sex and sexuality from the National Institute of Public Health shows changing attitudes, especially among girls.

Even though most high school students have been in love sometime, not everybody connect sex with love. In fact, an increasing number of youngsters think that it is okay having shorter sexual encounters without being in love. More youngsters think that having sex with a friend is okay, as is having multiple partners.

The report also shows that 65 percent of the girl’s in third year of high school have experienced sexual harassment of some kind. And that negative sexual experience connected to alcohol is common.

The National Institute of Public Health explains the changing attitudes with ”globalisation” and influence from the internet, soap operas and reality TV.
