This study presents the relationships between students’ attitudes towards pornography, sexual attitudes and sexual practices. Respondents were 286 senior four students selected from four government-aided secondary schools in Kampala District. A significant positive relationship was found between attitudes towards pornography and sexual attitudes (r = .219; p < .10) and between sexual attitudes and sexual practices (r = .287; p < .01). For attitudes towards pornography and sexual practices, the analysis showed no significant relationship. Analysis of variance (ANOVA) revealed an interaction between attitudes towards pornography, sexual attitudes and sexual practices. Therefore results indicated that, although attitudes towards pornography do not affect sexual practices directly, they do so indirectly by influencing sexual attitudes. Implications of the results and recommendations for further research were discussed.
