The study also showed that apart from sex, most of the respondents took drugs, were involved in pornography, secret societies, vandalism and truancy.
The study, conducted by UKM Children and Youth Psychology specialist Dr Khaidzir Ismail, found all the female students save one confessing to have had experienced the “pleasure of the flesh”.
The three-month High Risk Female Youth Profile Study, which ended last December, took 20 students with disciplinary problems from each school, ranging from Form One to Form Five, as its respondents.
“It is sad and shocking to find all except one of the respondents admitted to having experienced sex.
“This is painful finding but it is a reality that we have to accept,” he said.
It is understood that the study was a Selangor government’s initiative to find a handle to the deteriorating moral values among the female youth in the state.
From the study, the state government aims to formulate a special training module to promote high moral values among girls.
Dr Khaidzir said the study also found that the female students, aged between 15 and 16, were at a high risk of being involved in various discipline problems, including those related to sex.
“The study also found that the problems committed by these students were due to external pressure like coming from broken homes,” he said.
Khaidzir said most of the students were poor in their academic achievements, communication skills and had low self-esteem and self-control as well as problem solving capabilities.
