This work presents the results of an exploratory study on adolescents’ sexual and relational-emotional knowledge, sources of information, and behaviors. The study also investigates adolescents’ risky experiences in both real and vir-tual life. The sample consists of 1522 adolescents of Italian nationality with age range between 12 and 18 years (44% males and 56% females), who completed an on-line self-report questionnaire. Results show that, contrary to their percep-tion, adolescents’ knowledge about sexuality and emotionality is rather scarce. They refer primarily to parents, friends, and, to a considerable extent, to the In-ternet to get information about sexuality. In addition, the percentage of sexual-ly active adolescents who report to enact risky behaviors, especially among the youngest (12-14 years), is noteworthy. Finally, a consistent percentage of ado-lescents report to receive or send "sensual" photos through the Internet and to receive requests to provide personal material/information by strangers.
Keywords: Adolescence, sexual risky behaviors, relationships, sexuality, knowledge about sexuality, source of information about sexuality.
