89 adolescents between 10 and 19 years from "Los Carritos" family physician's office of the "Ramiro Betancourt" Teaching Polyclinic, in Palma Soriano, were studied aimed at knowing about their conceptions and behavior in the sexual sphere. Among the main findings it is the fact that the first manifestations of sexual activities in females and males appeared mostly at ages previous to sexual maturity. The moral criteria and likes predominated at the time of selecting a date. The most used sexual practices in the male sex were masturbation and the exchange of kisses and caresses. This latter and the reciprocal manipulations in the most excitable zones of the body were the most common among females. It was interesting to observe that these adolescents had a poor knowledge of sexually transmitted diseases and their prevention, as well as of the contraceptive methods and their utilization.
