Like a two-edge sword, when abused, technology could easily be harmful and detrimental to users, including youth. Youth is considered as one of the high risk groups easily affected by the negativity of technology. This is so because of youth exploratory instinct and high curiosity level towards their environment. Given this background, this study aims to investigate the impact of technology on youth sexual prevalence. The sexual prevalence investigated is sexual behaviour and pornography. By using a structured questionnaire on 1150 of youth in Malaysia, this study explores youth sexual prevalence using scoring method and regression analysis.
