Efforts need to be made to prevent high school students' risky sexual behavior which place them at risk for AIDS. Thus, a study was conducted to test the effect of an AIDS prevention program on 179 high school students' sexual risk taking behavior. The program was a performance by young actors who role-modeled AIDS risk reduction behaviors. Sexual risk taking behavior was assessed prior to and 3 months after attending the program. The mean sexual risk taking score was 1.8 (SD = 3.5) with 0 to 30 as the potential range. There were significant differences between pre- and post-test sexual risk taking behavior for the low risk group (< 1.8), Wilcoxon (127) = -4.5, p = .000, and high risk group (> 1.8), Wilcoxon (52) = -2.2, p = .03. Findings suggest support for role-modeling strategies in decreasing sexual risk taking behavior.
