This study examined the structure and the interaction of Sexual Self-Consciousness and Sexual Risk-Coping Consciousness of university students, and how each consciousness was correlated with sexual intercourse experience. The subjects were 302 students (male 138, female 164), to whom a questionnaire was distributed. After the review of related previous studies Sexual Self-Consciousness and Sexual Risk-Coping Consciousness were defined specifically for this study. Following the definitions the questionnaire items were completed. As a result of factor analysis of items concerning Sexual Self-Consciousness, two factors, namely the positive feeling towards one's own sexual relationship and the feeling of satisfaction towards one's own sexual attractiveness, were extracted. The scores of the two subscales of Sexual Self-Consciousness showed positive correlation between the two. As a result of factor analysis of items concerning Sexual Risk-Coping Consciousness, only one factor was extracted, with no subscales classified. Hence, the score of this scale was also called Sexual Risk-Coping Consciousness which proved to have positive correlation with the two subscales of Sexual Self-Consciousness. Further, the scores of the two subscales of Sexual Self-Consciousness and the scale of Sexual Risk-Coping Consciousness were significantly higher for both sexes who had experienced sexual intercourse than those with no experience of sexual intercourse.
