Abstract
Certain sexual behaviors are apparently acceptable as human beings but what sets apart the normal from the abnormal behavior is how an individual understands, accepts, thinks, and does all of these. Hence, this study entitled, “Sexual Behaviors among Students of Pangasinan State University” aimed to determine the frequency of prevalence of sexual behaviors among students of Pangasinan State University. It also identified their profile in terms of their age, sex, civil status, monthly family income, religion, family type and time spent online as well as the significant difference between their profile and the frequency of prevalence of their sexual behaviors. The study employed the descriptive correlational design of research study and a total of four-hundred (400) students were considered as the respondents of the study. A questionnaire was used to gather the needed data and the gathered results were processed through the utilization of the SPSS.
Based on the findings of the study, the researchers found out that majority of the students of PSU are 16-20 years of age, female, single, Roman Catholic believers, belong to a nuclear type of a family having an income of 9,999.00 and below and spending 2-4 hours online. Further, students exemplify low level of their sexual behaviors. Spearman’s results also revealed that age is related to their sexual behaviors. With these, the study strongly recommended that students should be consistently guided with their proper sexual behaviors. They should have always an open communication with their parents. The institution should maintain the course of the guidance and counselling program by strengthening more of their efforts as regards information dissemination on sex, sexuality, sexual harassment and other related matters. Since age is related to sexual behaviors, then they must still be given utmost attention to lead them to correct path and be able to finish their profession Lastly, the university should collaborate with the government agencies that also have the same thrusts and advocacies to help the school with the best practices as regards students’ welfare and development.

Key words: sexual behaviors, frequency of prevalence, sexuality
