No, Jun Hee · Lim, Eun Ju
Abstract
Purpose
The purpose of this study was to investigate the sexual knowledge and attitude of rural elders and to identify correlations between the factors.
Methods
Data were collected from 132 elderly people in J province who completed a structured questionnaire. Data were collected during March and April 2011, and analyzed using descriptive statistics and Pearson correlation coefficients with the SPSS/WIN 18.0 program.
Results
The participants' mean score for sexual knowledge was 18.30. There were significant differences in sexual knowledge according to the following general characteristics: marital status (F=5.357, p=.022), and type of financial support (F=3.232, p=.024). The participants' mean score for sexual attitude was 33.13. Significant differences in sexual attitude were found for the following general characteristics: gender (t=-3.922, p<.001), education level (F=7.508, p=.001), and religion (F=3.658, p=.007). The study results also showed that the more sexual knowledge the elders had, the more open-minded attitude they were (r=-.258, p<.01).
Conclusion
These findings demonstrate the necessity of developing the educational programs and providing mediation that will help elders acquire more accurate knowledge and positive attitudes regarding sexuality.
