- Association or interaction among adolescents becomes freer currently as male and female teenagers do not feel restricted to show their affection each other in public. Among students, who are belong to the late cohort of teenage, this phenomenon can be easily found out. Research results and released data from various institutions demonstrate this tendency. Cases such as recording their own intercourse, illegal abortion, pre marital-pregnancy, and HIV/AIDS exemplify the impact of freer association among male and female teenagers. The cause of this impact is not single. The lack of knowledge on sexuality, as well as the lack of internalized religious values, is among the causes. University as an educational institution is yet to show their concern and has not addressed the issue. It is a surprise since university has millions of students who are still adolescent and vulnerable to face many temptations. Even if university starts to care about it, the role of institution is not yet optimized. As a result, students do not know how and where to complain about their problems in relation with their sexual opposites.The issue is interesting to be discussed since university is not only an institution for transferring knowledge, but also an institution for educating their students in order to have provision for life
