Abstract

This descriptive study examined the self-esteem, attitudes and opinions of 40 Black high school adolescents regarding sexuality and teen pregnancy.

The results show that the participants were sexually active. They have good knowledge of human sexuality and AIDS. However, although the majority of the participants reported having used condoms, the last time they had sex, the majority of them did not use contraceptives.

Additionally, a t test showed that there was no significant difference in the self-esteem scores of the males and females.
