sexual learning

The three phases of sexual learning - 1) being primed for sex, 2) making sense of sex, and 3) having sexual experiences - interact to shape adolescents' sexual lives and their risk for HIV infection. This framework will contribute to the development of sexual education programmes that address HIV risk within the broader context of sexual learning.
