Four hundred and fifty (450) students selected from south west Nigeria Federal Universities were used for the study. Questionnaires were used for data collection and Chi-square (x) statistical method was employed to analyze data and to test the hypothesis at a=0.05 level of significance. The researcher deduced that all the variables considered had significant influence on the behaviour of students towards sex. The results revealed that the behavior of students towards sex was significantly influenced by their gender, culture, religion and educational status. Based on the outcome of this research, it was recommended that sexual program should be organized in our higher institutions to enlighten students on how to behave, so as to avert the nauseating problem of sexually transmitted infections as well as unwanted pregnancies.
