Family, pornography, undergraduates, sexual behavior, public tertiary institutions


This study examined family pornography and undergraduate sexual behavior in public tertiary institutions in Ogun State, Nigeria. The study uses a cross-sectional survey design and selects 400 respondents for this study. We validate the questionnaire by assessing respondents’ responses using Cronbach alpha (score = 0.87). The hypotheses were formulated and tested using Multiple Regression and Chi-square at a 5% significance level. The results indicated that family pornography predicted the undergraduates' sexual behavior and family type also influenced the undergraduates' sexual behavior. The results further revealed that age, gender, religion, and family structure had significant relationships on sexual behavior but not with the ethnical background and academic discipline of the students. It recommends that parents should not be left alone in this campaign. Other agents of socialization, such as school and religious organizations, should also see that adolescents are informed about sexualities and the risks involved in risky sexual behaviors.
