In the broadcast Voices of the World with the journalist of the public Radio-Television Slovenia Urška Henigman first comprehensive results of the study »Sexuality in Secondary-School Students in Slovenia: Behaviour, Health and Attitudes” were presented. The study was a collaboration of the University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Social Sciences (Tina Kogovšek, PhD (leader), Ivan Bernik, PhD , Alenka Švab, PhD, Valentina Hlebec, PhD, Maja Mrzel), Peace Institute (Roman Kuhar, PhD), and National Institute of Public Health (Irena Klavs, PhD , Sonja Tomšič, Tanja Kustec). Results on a representative sample of high-school students have shown that the young enter sexual life at approximately same age as their peers in the 1990s, however, they are more responsible (much higher use of contraceptives, especially condom), less impulsive and that  their first sexual experiences are more pleasant. Results also show that there is a great need for a more comprehensive and systematic sexual education in schools.
