The findings reveal that the first sample group had the high sexual comprehension in every area.

The proper sexuality ways for teaching teenagers suggest teachers should have neutral attitude, be open minded, and give students some opportunity to ask questions relating to sexuality. The teachers should be equipped with concreate teaching content and skills to create good learning atmosphere.
