The primary purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of sex education on college students with respect to their sex information, sexual attitudes, sexual guilt, and sexual behaviors. A single 251-item sex questionnaire was administered to 156 college students on two separate occasions, once at the beginning and once at the end of a course in human sexuality. The conclusions are that sex education has many positive effects such as reduction of sexual guilt, inhibitions, and the double standard, maintaining the traditional values of love and fidelity, and providing a healthier, more comfortable and responsible attitude toward sex.
