Summary of research topic
The aim of the literature review is to analyse the information currently available about the attitudes and opinions of adolescents to safe sexual practices. It is evident that there has been little research into teenagers’ opinions about safe sex. For this reason it was decided to design a qualitative research study.
The research proposed will use a grounded theory approach to explore the opinions of teenagers who volunteer to share their views on safe sex, in relation to their own sexual behaviour and sexual health
