CHAPTER
ONE
INTRODUCTION
1.1     BACKGROUND OF STUDY
          Since
the first decade of this century there has been considerable interest in the
sexual attitude and behaviour of the adolescents. This has been of great
interest and concepts to adults in general and educationists in particular. It
is generally believed that adolescent period, is a period of intense sexual
drive and experimentation. One can explain sexuality within a biological and
development frame work, yet it is equally important to examine the social and
cultural attitude and beahviours.
          This
facts is supported by Gebhard (2001) as he rightfully observed that the meaning
of sex for various people depends upon the social contest in which it develops.
The Nigeria public today seems to be expressing a lot of concern about the high
incidence of sexual laxity among the youth especially among the secondary
school adolescents.
          The
numerous writings and views expressed in our news media and some empirical
studies conducted on the topic are clear evidences of the peoples’ concern.
1.2     PURPOSE OF STUDY
          This
study is designed to identify the sexual behaviour and contraceptive practices
among female students in selected senior secondary schools in Ikole Local
Government, Ekiti State.
          The
problem to be examined include those of initial interaction between the numbers
of the opposite sex. Their physical, self perception, involvement in sex,
personal value for sex-education.
          It
is also to investigate whether they are aware of any family planning method and
which of those method are being sued. Also to investigate any of the family
planning devices that are available in the locality.
1.3     STATEMENT OF PROBLEMS
          Human
sexuality in general and adolescents sexuality and the use of drugs in
particular are concerned with a vast number of issues, facts, myths and
problems. They range from the biological to the moral, from the philosophical
to the medical, from the socio-logical to the religions. Considering the
physical dimensions,. It may not be taken for granted that boys and girls get
along together without inhibitions, such inhibitions may stem from physical
features like pimples, stature, late or early development of secondary sexual characteristics
among others. It may also be connected with physiological matters like  the fear of acceptable, affections, feelings
of self unworthiness, communications and even masturbation. Other aspects are
degree of sexual involvement, caressing, romance, kissing and the use of
contraceptives.
1.5     SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY
          The
study is significant in the sense that of all the problems attendant on the
adolescent of those involving sexual adjustment get the greatest attention and
are more emotionally involving. It is therefore necessary to understand that
sex drive is a reality and adolescents do not know to how stop in their hetero
sexual behaviours. We used to bear in mind that the ways in which adolescents
find their sexual identity and express it, are extremely varied. This, it is
obvious that the sexual problems could be identified and diagnosed, the
counselors and others in helping professions would be in a better position to
help the adolescents to attain proper sexual adjustment and the “Storms and
stress characteristics of adolescent will be drastically minimized if not
completely eliminated.
