Background: Risky sexual behaviour among the youth of South Africa is one of the major health concerns in the country because it is associated with negative reproductive health outcomes such as high teenage pregnancies and exposure to sexually transmitted infections including HIV/AIDS. Objective: The main objective for this study is to examine the factors influencing risky sexual behaviour among the youth in South Africa in order to make recommendations for strategies that would help reproductive health programmes in planning. Data and methods: The research uses data from the 2003 South African Demographic and Health survey. The study population comprised of 4597 female youth aged 15-34 years old. Bivariate analyses and multinomial logistic regression were used to determine the factors affecting risky sexual behaviour among the youth. The factors that were significant in the multiple regression models were regarded as the most important variables associated with risky sexual behaviour. Results: Out of 4597 female youth, 114 (2.5%) had low risk sexual behaviour, 2112 had medium risk sexual behaviour and 278 had high risk sexual behaviour. The results revealed that risky sexual behaviour varies by background variables. Risky sexual behaviour increases with age, is higher among urban than rural youth i higher among youth with secondary education than youth in other educational categories. In addition, the results showed that risky sexual behaviour vary according to province of residence. The highest risky behaviour was observed in Kwa-Zulu Natal (22.7%) and Western Cape (21.5%). whereas North West and Eastern Cape (5.1% and 3.9%) respectively, had low risky sexual behaviour. The multi-nominal analyses indicate that having a radio and marital status were significant) associated with risky sexual behavior), [OR=1.23, Cl=l.23] Conclusion: The study concludes that policies and programmes designed at reducing risky sexual behaviour among the youth should continue be supported and encouraged. Since having a radio is associated with low risky sexual behaviour. it is suggested that messages encouraging the youth on safe sex by use of condoms, reduce number of sexual partners, avoid receiving money or gifts in exchange of sex should continue to be reinforced through radio. Furthermore, parents should also be taught through a radio on how to educate their children to practice safe sex. Finally, the results show that there is still need for further research on risky sexual behaviour among the youth. Future research should, among other things focus on strategies to delay sexual debut among the youth, the role of parents and good cultural practices. / Thesis (M.Soc.Sc.(Population Studies) North-West University, Mafikeng Campus, 2013

In order to provide comprehensive sexual health education, it is important for teachers and health care professionals to understand trends related to adolescent sexual practices. Anecdotal reports over the past decade indicate that oral sex is becoming an increasingly common and casual activity among adolescent females. to investigate the validity of this claim the author set out to study the oral sex behaviours and related attitudes of Canadian young women. A total of 181 women (ages 18-25 years) completed two anonymous self-report questionnaires: one to gather data about intercourse and oral sex experiences, and the other to assess degree of identification with feminist ideology. Analysis revealed that oral sex and intercourse are equally prevalent among young women and that the two behaviors have similar emotional implications. However, as compared to intercourse, women tend to regard oral sex as less intimate and are significantly less likely to use protection against sexually transmitted infections when engaging in oral sex. The findings indicate that there is no significant relationship between oral sex and feminism, but that some women find fellatio empowering. Trends related to sexual activity as well as implications for school-based sex education programs are discussed. / Psychological Studies in Education
