The purpose of this study was to understand sexual behavior of college students and to provide basic resources for a counseling program and sexual health education program by identifying general tendency of sexual behavior and analyzing demographic and environmental variables that affect sexual behaviors. METHODS: To identify sexual behaviors according to demographic and environmental variables of college students, t-test and one way ANOVA were done using the SPSS/WIN 18.0 program. Multiple regression analysis was done to identify the effects of demographic and environmental variables upon sexual behaviors. RESULTS: As to sexual behaviors, male students, upper grade students, engineering division students, students with higher economic status, students with opposite gender friends, and students with experience in receiving obscene materials were more vulnerable to sexual behavior. As to demographic and environmental variables, they explained 25% of variances in 'sexual behavior'. CONCLUSION: The results of this study indicate that development of mental health nursing strategies for university students are required for effective sexual counseling on sound relationships and sexual health matters.
