The main objective of this study was to investigate the prevalence and associated risk factors of promiscuous sexual behavior among tertiary institutions students. To achieve this objective, a cross-sectional study was conducted among 50 students (21males and 29 females) of Osun State college of Education Ilesa, using systematic sampling method. The required data were collected using a questionnaire. Descriptive statistics, standard Chi-square were used to analyze data. The results indicated that the participants were engaged in promiscuous sexual behavior. This sexual behavior was significantly and positively associated with all the risk factors (positive attitude to the behavior, peer pressure, freedom from parental control, financial problem, and the desire for material possession) included in the study. The results of standard multiple regression analysis revealed that the combined contribution of these five risk factors that explains the variance in promiscuous sexual behavior was significant. The subsequent stepwise multiple regression analysis identified only three factors (positive attitude, freedom from parental control, and material possession) as significant predictors of the behavior that explain. Regarding differences, the behavior was higher among males than females, third year students than second and first years, and students from city administration/regional capital than rural. In conclusion, nearly half of the students were engaged and apparently practiced promiscuous sexual behavior. The risk factors included in this study were significantly associated with thebehavior and most of them significantly predicted it. In light of these findings, suggestions forintervention are noted.

1.1       Background of the Study
Sexual promiscuity is the act of indulging or having sexual intercourse with several causal acquaintances. According to Flisher, (2013).,sexual promiscuity means having many sexual partners. Flisher, (2013). opines that sexual indiscrimination is the utilization of ones body with the end goal of compensation or thought of any shape. It could likewise be tended to as prostitution. This is the kind of administration given by women who need cash or who are edgy to achieve some specific levels of flourishing Abebaw, (2012). Perceptions by the specialists have demonstrated that numerous female understudies in tertiary foundations are in this training. As indicated by them, it is more lucrative now as an understudy in the grounds since men never again disparage whorehouses and road whores rather they favor understudies. The grounds circumstance is so awful to the degree that expert whores are hail twisted to pick up entrance into higher organizations. Abebaw, (2012), opined that sexual wantonness is extremely widespread in our Universities and the normal grounds has a few systems. The greater part of these understudies remain outside their lodgings and corridors to request for business. The solidified ones who see their grounds as excessively exhausting don't work inside the University grounds. They boldly take their exchange straightforwardly to their clients around evening time to adjacent urban areas, clubs or problem areas that would give them most extreme introduction to men who will get a kick out of the chance to belittle them. Nonetheless, the peruser may ask why wantonness would thrive inside college grounds under the very nose of the staff and security operators. One reason the analysts accept is that the higher foundations experts have neglected to strike the correct harmony between guaranteeing students‟ freedom and requirement of existing grounds implicit rules. This depends on the start that the understudies are grown-ups that ought to have the capacity to deal with themselves autonomous of their folks. What's more, Abraham, (2010), placed that with unbridled freedom and opportunity the understudies started to push the cutoff points of satisfactory conduct, exploiting flexibility gave on them as "grown-ups". 

On the issue of the impact of sexual indiscrimination on solid living, Adedokum,( 2012), insinuated that sexually transmitted infections like gonorrhea, syphilis, Candida, herpes virginalis and most exceedingly awful of all HIV/AIDS are alarmingly high among young ladies who are sexually unbridled. Medications like cocaine, maryjane and liquor are utilized most oftentimes by these young ladies to the detriment of their wellbeing. They are additionally for the most part affected by "psychotropic medications" that place them in a condition of dauntlessness and forwardness. In a similar vein, Barker, and Rich, (2017) opined that most instances of barrenness are caused by being indiscriminate consequently being invaded by various contaminated clients or associates. Most female or male fruitlessness, he included, can be ascribed to spouses or wives who disparage sex peddlers and bring home contaminations and sexually transmitted sicknesses. In what turns into an endless loop, barrenness may prompt separation and now and again the surrendered spouse goes into prostitution as a methods for survival. Once more, physical wounds and wounds may likewise prompt general separate in wellbeing condition. Besides, a large portion of the young ladies in this training are some of the time physically struck by their "buyers" who may act affected by hard medications Janice, (2014). 

As indicated by Barker, (2017), sexual indiscrimination is the utilization of one's body with the end goal of compensation or thought of any frame. It could likewise be tended to as prostitution. This is the sort of administration given by women who need cash or who are edgy to achieve some specific levels of thriving Bhatt, (2014), opined that sexual indiscrimination is exceptionally wild in our Universities and the normal grounds has a few systems. The majority of these understudies remain outside their inns and corridors to request for business. 

In the mid 70s sexual indiscrimination began to make strides because of western instruction which debilitated the hold which customary sexual unthinkable used to have on individuals, and virginity before marriage was tossed to the breeze. Calves, (2014), an occupant researcher at the American undertaking organization, satisfies that, a greater number of young people are winding up sexually dynamic than in the previous years and will probably utilize contraceptives than their prior partners. He additionally reports that by 1988, 70% of high school females have engaged in sexual relations in any event once contrasted with 40% of every 1970s. 

Two examinations have taken a gander at youthful watchers' capacity to take in sexual data from TV. Results from one investigation demonstrate that fifth and sixth graders who saw a sex instruction program scored fundamentally higher on an ensuing poll about sexual realities than did the individuals who did not Carey, (2010). This uncovered TV is equipped for educating sexual data, at any rate when programs are outlined particularly for that reason. Since most TV programming that pre-adult's view is intended for satisfaction as opposed to instruction, a later report inspected gaining from excitement indicates Anderson, (2011). 

Chademana, (2011), analyzed the connection between sexual indiscrimination and TV presentation in a two-wave board consider. Research uncovered proposed that adolescents are taking in data about sex from TV and that presentation is influencing their demeanors and good assessments. The impact of review TV sex on conduct is less clear. Nonetheless, speculations propose that TV may assume a key part in forming youths' considerations, states of mind, and convictions about sentimental connections, closeness, and even sexual conduct. 

Dejose, (2013)found that as youngsters develop, they surrender to the impacts of their companions as they shed off their parental introduction and supplant it with reliance on their associates. As per him, Friends may urge their associates to participate in unwanted acts like battling, liquor drinking, and sexual indiscrimination. Edith, (2014), brought up that companion bunch impact is a key determinant in causing liquor utilization that may come about into getting into battles, taking part in sexual indiscrimination, and missing school. In reality, there is prove that associate affiliations might be the component through which social. 
hindrance and family strife influence various unwanted life results in later pre-adulthood and early adulthood, for example, criminal conduct, sexual wantonness, and early childbearing Glover, (2010). 

Companions may unequivocally decide inclination in the method for dressing, talking, utilizing illegal substances, sexual wantonness, receiving and tolerating viciousness, embracing criminal and against social practices and in numerous different zones of the youthful's life Govender, (2012) 

Nigerian culture which grants polygamy might be viewed as support of indiscrimination. Numerous guardians experience issues talking about sex with their young people and the more troublesome it is when guardians presume youths of being sexually wanton. In a few societies, where "peddling" (road distributing) and "night showcasing" is normal, young ladies are figuring out how to get "goes" from men and gain aptitudes in managing these. Since the presentation of Western esteems and instruction in Nigeria, ladies have kept on obtaining aptitudes in managing guys in a culture experiencing significant change. This has prompted an expanded inclination to postpone marriage and an expanded occurrence of premarital sexual connections. In a few societies, it is exceptionally normal today to request pregnancy instead of virginity as an essential for marriage. This is particularly valid among the informed young people. Likewise, a large portion of the prominent music and notices glamorize sexuality, despite the fact that there is as yet a solid dissatisfaction with open talk of sexuality.

Inferable from the way that the vast majority of these students understudies move out with obscure customers, Andersen, (2013).opined that they are simple devices in the hands of custom executioners and criminals. Further, when a lady acknowledges cash for sex, she has given on the man the expert and energy to choose what sort of sex to happen, she would be required to continue severity, assault and other wrongdoing against her behind shut entryway. The pervasiveness and modernity in indiscriminate conduct of the female students as implied by Andersen, (2013) is sufficient to trigger a talk. The analysts think about whether the college's understudies are oblivious or need consciousness of the wellbeing ramifications of indiscrimination. The focal point of the examination is on the wellbeing ramifications of sexual indiscrimination and the part of guiding in giving data benefits about its characteristic wellbeing suggestions.
