Abstract

This study was a qualitative, exploratory and descriptive study, conducted in the Vhembe District Municipality of the Limpopo Province in four selected villages. The purpose of the study was to explore and describe the views of young people regarding sexuality. Data were collected from October 2004 to January 2005 using focus group discussions, key-informant interviews, semi-structured interviews and observation. Young people's views about sexuality were centred around heterosexual sexual intercourse and the prevention of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), prevention of the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS), use of contraceptives, performance of sex, activities that take place during intercourse for example touching, kissing and penetration by the man's penis, making babies and use of condoms.

Hierdie studie was 'n kwalitatiewe, verkennende en beskrywende studie, onderneem in die Vhembe Distrik Munisipaliteit van die Limpopo Provinsie, in vier uitgesoekte dorpies. Die doel van die studie was om die jeug se beskouing van seksualiteit te verken en te beskryf. Data is ingesamel vanaf Oktober 2004 tot Januarie 2005 deur gebruik te maak van fokusgroepbesprekings, onderhoude met sleutelinformante, semi-gestruktureerde onderhoude en waarneming. Die jongmense se beskouing van seksualiteit was gesentreer rondom heteroseksuele geslagsomgang en die voorkoming van seksueeloordraagbare siektes, voorkoming van Menslike Immuungebrekvirus (MIV) en Verworwe Immuniteitsgebrek Sindroom (VIGS), gebruik van voorbehoedmiddels, die seksdaad, aktiwiteite wat plaasvind tydens seksuele omgang byvoorbeeld aanraking, soen, penetrasie van die man se penis, die maak van babas en die gebruik van kondome.
