The State

December 21, 1987

More than two out of three Californians believe that sexually explicit materials on safe sex are necessary to educate some groups in acquired immune deficiency syndrome prevention measures, according to a statewide poll conducted by San Francisco State University's Public Research Institute. The poll--co-sponsored by the group California Common Cause--found that 68% of those surveyed favored the use of sexually explicit materials for certain groups, 24% opposed them and 8% were not sure. The survey found that blacks had the highest rate of approval, 79%, while Latinos and Asians--63% approval--were among those least inclined to favor the materials. Richard DeLeon, a political science professor at the university, noted that the survey respondents with the least formal education were the ones most likely to support the use of sexually explicit materials.
