Purpose: The purpose of this study was to identify 14 years of trends in sexual intercourse and sex education experiences among Korean adolescents from 2006 to 2019, based on online data. Methods: The study was a secondary analysis using the raw data of the 2nd (2006) through 15th (2019) Youth Risk Behavior Web-based Survey. The data of 504,105 male adolescents and 473,053 female adolescents were used for the analysis. A complex-sample cross-analysis (Rao-Scott χ2 test) was performed to identify differences in sexual intercourse, sex education experience, and contraception over time, and logistic regression was performed to identify factors affecting adolescent sexual intercourse. Results: Sexual intercourse was found to increase as the year progressed. More high school students had sexual experiences than middle school students. Students who had ever smoked or drunk were more likely to have had sexual intercourse than the ones who had not. Students living with relatives or living in boarding houses or dormitories showed a higher rate of sexual intercourse than those living with family members. Students who never received sex education also showed a high rate of sexual intercourse. Conclusion: It is significant to grasp the trends in sexual intercourse, sex education experience, and contraception among adolescents over time. Providing adolescents with healthy sex education is becoming more and more important every year and health-related education including sex education that meets the need of teenagers should be incorporated into the regular curriculum.
