Abstract: A total of 1186 Egyptian students from the governorate capital cities of Menoufia, Beheira and Beni Sueif were interviewed between October and December 1993 to determine their knowledge of and attitudes towards human sexuality. The sample comprised 620 male and 566 female students aged 13-20 years [preparatory and secondary schools]. The results indicated that there was a general lack of knowledge of sexual issues. An informal programme is recommended to improve adolescents' knowledge of sexual matters and correct misconceptions
