Abstract

The postmodern society offers a variety of opportunities unbeknownst to prior generations. Every choice forces the individual to conduct a risk analysis by taking the consequences into consideration. This study that builds on a quantitative method with qualitative elements highlights where the youth turns to in regards to questions of sexuality. Any social effort has to take into account that for the youth, sexuality is an important part of every day life and in creating a sense of identity. Identifying the arenas where the youth seek guidance regarding questions of their own sexuality is primarily important for the preventive aspect of the social work. The youth clinic is an institution that has been a place to turn to for answers since the 1970s. Some youth clinics offers counselling in questions regarding sexuality, but does this mean the youth prefers these clinics more than other venues? The result of this study shows that the youth clinics, the internet, and the social circle one is a part of, are the most common venues for youngsters in this matter. It does however differ depending on the nature of the question itself. (Less)
