Forum Sexualaufklärung und Familienplanung Nr. 2/2010
This latest edition of FORUM describes current international research results relating to youth sexuality from Germany, Switzerland, France and the United Kingdom.
At the beginning of September, the German Federal Centre for Health Education (Bundeszentrale für gesundheitliche Aufklärung – BZgA) published new data on youth sexuality in Germany in 2010. The results reported in the first article in this issue focus on migration: statements made by young people from a migration background on their attitudes and behaviour related to sexuality education, sexuality and contraception were evaluated separately and can thus be compared with the data from the main cohort – with interesting results.
The second article deals with condom use in 16–20-year-old young people in Germany, as revealed by the study “Public Awareness of AIDS”. The results of the study indicate that condoms are very widely accepted and are used both for protection against unwanted pregnancy and also for the prevention of sexually transmitted infections (STI). International experts consider whether, in view of high infection rates among young people in some parts of Europe, more emphasis should be placed on the use of condoms in STI prevention.
