REIS, Marta et al. Relation between sexual attitudes, knowledge and HIV/AIDS attitudes in sexual orientation. Psic., Saúde & Doenças [online]. 2013, vol.14, n.1, pp.141-151. ISSN 1645-0086.

The attitudes and knowledge concerning sexuality haven’t remained constant over time. In this sense, we investigated the relationship between knowledge about HIV / AIDS transmission, sexual attitudes and attitudes towards those living with HIV / AIDS in university students. We also intend to assess how knowledge and attitudes relate to sexual orientation. 3278 questionnaires were administered to 993 men and 2285 women. The results show that most are sexually active, had their first sexual intercourse at 16. We found statistically significative differences as for sexual orientation: homosexuals begin their sexual lives before heterosexuals and these present a more positive sexual attitude than bisexuals. Homossexuals have a less discriminatory attitude towards people infected with the HIV / AIDS than bisexuals. To experience sexuality positively it’s crucial to invest in sexual education as a strategy of sexual and reproductive health.
