: The influence of different sources of information on knowledge in sexualityand sexual health (English)
Abstract [sv]

Hela samhället berörs av bristande kunskap och dåliga attityder kring sexualitet och sexuell

hälsa. Syftet med studien var att beskriva ungdomars användning och upplevelse av informationskällor

bland olika kunskapsområden inom sexualitet och sexuell hälsa, med en enkät.

Resultatet visade att vänner/partners är den mest värdefulla informationskällan. Pornografi är

en värdefull källa för kunskap om ”sätt att ha sex” och sociala medier är en värdefull källa för

HBTQ+. Mest tillförlitliga informationskällorna var föräldrar/vårdnadshavare, ungdomsmottagning

och vänner/partner. Den upplevda kunskapen om sex och samlevnad överlag uppnådde

nivån “måttlig”, med bäst kunskaper inom preventivmedel och säkrare sex, och det

viktigaste kunskapsområden upplevdes vara relationer. Studiens betydelsefullaste resultat visade

att ungdomars upplevda kunskapsnivå inom ett område och upplevd tillförlitlighet av en

källa korrelerar med hur värdefull ungdomar upplever informationskällan, inte i vilken omfattning

informationskällan används.

Abstract [en]

The whole society is affected by the lack of knowledge and poor attitudes about sexuality and

sexual health. The purpose of the study was to describe young people's use and experience of

information sources among different areas of knowledge in sexuality and sexual health, with

a questionnaire. The result showed that friends/partners are the most valuable source of information.

Pornography is a valuable source of knowledge about ways of having sex, and social

media is a valuable source of knowledge for LGBTQ+. The most reliable sources of information

are parents, youth clinics and friends/partners. The perceived knowledge of sexuality

and sexual health in general achieved the level “moderate”, with the best knowledge

about contraception and safer sex, and the most important knowledge areas were perceived as

relationships. The most significant results showed that young people's perceived level of

knowledge in one area and perceived reliability of a source correlate with how valuable

young people experience the information source, not to what extent the source of information

is used.
