This study aimed to gain insight into the extent and correlates of exposure to sexually explicit materials (SEM) of high-school students in Zagreb. Second-year students (N = 2241) were recruited in their schools, and they filled in an anonymous survey online. Sociodemographic, familial and sociosexual characteristics were tested as predictors/correlates of SEM use and its frequency in the past 6 months. Analyses were conducted separately for boys (n=940) and girls (n=1301). Almost 9 out of 10 boys and one out of three girls used SEM at least once in the past 6 months. The majority of boys used SEM several times a week, and girls used it once every few months. In both genders, low religiosity and more sexual experience were significantly correlated with SEM use and its frequency. In boys, SEM use was associated with lower parental monitoring, and in girls with non-heterosexual attraction. The multivariate models explained 10% of the variance of SEM use frequency in boys and 15% in girls. Widespread SEM use among adolescents suggests that critical discussion of explicit portrayals of sexuality should be included in sexual education. Promoting media literacy and a critical attitude towards the commercialization of sexuality may help adolescents develop into sexually contented and responsible persons.
