ABSTRACT
The article discusses the results on a survey about the knowledge of sex matters among senior students in the Catholic high schools of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. They reveal that the real source of sex information is not the parent or the home. The street corner, cinema, and sexy books substitute the parental role of forming the standards for the child's concepts of sex and social moral virtue. Majority of them are ignorant of the nature of the psychic and physical factors operating in the sex urge.
