Nowadays. Despite the abundance of churches and religious activities on our streets and in our cities, promiscuity is prevalent among our unmarried undergraduates. It was not always like this in the days of our forefathers. As a result of this degradation, undergraduates are unable to control their sexual desire, which is cause for concern. Sexually transmitted diseases can now be found in almost every home.
Several homes have been inundated with unwanted pregnancies and illegitimate children. Given that the primary target population here is college undergraduates, one pertinent question is whether providing contraception to undergraduates is socially acceptable.
Sex is like electricity, which has a tremendous force for good but a terrible force for evil when it runs wild. Millions of good undergraduates have abused sex, their lives twisted as if a bolt of lightning struck them. On the outside, they appear to be fine, and you would never guess that a sexual mistake has nearly killed their happiness on the inside. The negative impact of this uncontrollable force must be mitigated through the use of contraception. Our undergraduates must provide guidance in the prevention of unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted disease.
So, in this article, we will look at sexuality and contraception among college undergraduates.
1.1 DEFINITION OF THE PROBLEM
This study is concerned with sexuality and contraception among undergraduates in relation to those students who specified colleges of education as their institutions. The study of sexuality and contraception will invariably bring up some contentious social issues.
Contraception for sexual promiscuity, abortion, illegitimacy, prostitution, and homosexuality are all contentious issues. Our society should encourage an enlightenment program on sex education with a primary focus on youths and undergraduates.
1.2 OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY
1. To aid in the prevention of the spread of sexually transmitted diseases among young undergraduates.
2. To educate young undergraduates and the general public about the importance and use of contraception.
3. To educate primarily young undergraduates about sexuality and the use of contraception.
4. To conduct a literature review on the psychological correlates of contraceptive effectiveness.
5. The study intends to investigate sexuality and contraceptive use among undergraduates and assess their success.
The study’s significance is to encourage further research on these variables with the greatest potential for predicting contraceptive behaviors, which will aid in the development and implementation of effective prevention and intervention programs, particularly those dealing with sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV/AIDS
. It is not concerned with safer sex practices, but rather with reviewing the literature on the correlates of unwanted pregnancies among undergraduates, most notably pill and condom use. This will also contribute significantly to medical issues such as family planning, the rate of contraception for sexually transmitted diseases, and contraceptive effectiveness.
The findings discussed here, in particular, may be useful to sexuality experts involved in the development and promotion of safer sex programs. This research is expected to make a significant contribution to the ongoing debate on strategies for educating undergraduates about sexuality and contraception, as well as to government health care centers and voluntary organizations working to reduce sexually transmitted disease.
It also aims to assist in identifying undergraduates who do not use or misuse contraception, putting them at risk of unwanted pregnancies, HIV/AIDS, and other sexually transmitted diseases.
1.4 QUESTIONS FOR RESEARCH
1. Is it common for undergraduates to use contraception?
2. Does contraception protect the interests of those who use it properly?
3. Is there a significant relationship between undergraduate promiscuity and contraception?
4. Is there a link between sex education and the prevalence of sexually transmitted diseases among undergraduates?
5. Is there a significant relationship between sex education knowledge and abstinence?
6. There is a significant relationship between sex education knowledge and a healthy attitude toward marriage.
1.5 THE STUDY’S OBJECTIVE
This study will focus on sexuality and contraception among undergraduates and will examine the state of sexuality and contraception use among students at the College of Education in Ekiadolor, Benin, Edo State. These findings may not be a good generalization for the entire state or country, but due to some similarities in the ways of the young undergraduates, the findings can serve as a guide to what the situation may be in the country at large.
