This research was conducted during 2013 in order to determine the type of information, knowledge and attitudes that young people in our university have about sexuality. Parents think their children responsibility ends when they graduate from high school or come of age, but this position is a terrible mistake because education in values, closely related to all aspects of human life should be permanent, as they enter college they discover another world that could dazzle them and bring them to adopt wrong behaviors and attitudes.
The University of Guayaquil rightly included in the syllabi, youth sex education as one of its transverse axis, but there is no program that teachers can develop.
The hypothetical-deductive method was used in the analysis, by applying random, anonymous and confidential survey to a sample of 150 students out of a population of 1105 students corresponding to the eight levels of the School of Management at the Faculty of Administrative Sciences of the University of Guayaquil.
The results determined the background, the type of information and sexual practices of students, demonstrating that there is a degree of ignorance about some issues. At the end of this study, simple strategic tools were suggested, to help teachers refer to these kind of topics objectively, naturally and warmly so that young people understand the importance of taking their sexuality responsibly.
