Sexual knowledge and behavior of students
Students' knowledge about sex, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and the factors that influence their sexual behavior are very interesting research topics. So far Dr. Reuter and his collaborators have looked into the knowledge and attitudes towards HIV/AIDS and sexually transmitted infections in students in Madagascar and at Florida Gulf Coast University. The results of these survey-based projects were presented at an international conference (2015 Toronto meeting of the International Academy of Sex Research (IASR) and published in a peer-reviewed journal.

The current project "Why do students have sex?" is trying to find out more about students' reasons for being sexually active or not. The team wants to learn about the factors and motivators influencing students’ sexual behavior, such as drug and alcohol consumption, situational and peer pressure, or past events.
