Resumen

MADIEDO HERNANDEZ, Jorge; OTERO ALONSO, Miriam; GONZALEZ IZQUIERDO, Yamilka  y  PULIDO GONZALEZ, Tania. Conducta sexual en adolescentes varones y anticoncepción. Rev Cubana Enfermer [online]. 2001, vol.17, n.1, pp.9-13. ISSN 0864-0319.

A prospective and longitudinal study was conducted in order to determine the degree of knowledge, use and sexual responsiblity of male adolescents in relation to contraception in our environment. The percentage method was applied to the variables and an anonymous and voluntary survey was done among 400 males aged 13-18 from the middle educational level, in the municipality of Guane, in May, 1999. It was found that a high proportion of teenagers knew about the contraceptive methods, which shows a dissociation between the knowledge and the utilization of contraceptive methods in the adolescent male. The main way of knowldege about these methods is associated with the supposed reduction of sensations produced by the use of condom during the sexual intercourse. It was also observed a trend toward machism concerning the sexual responsibility of the male adolescent due to the fact that they ignore their responsibilty as regards contraception and that they consider having the right to demand from their partners a safe sexual relation.

Palabras clave : CONTRACEPTION; CONTRACEPTIVE AGENTS MALE; ADOLESCENCE; SEX BEHAVIOR; SEX EDUCATION; MALE.
