This article addresses the importance of sexual education in society, emphasizing its origin in the family and its development throughout life. The relevance of providing information about sexuality during adolescence and youth is highlighted to prevent risky behaviors and future health problems that can lead to a personal decline in people's lives. The author mentions the reluctance of many parents to discuss sexuality with their children, which can lead to a "pact of silence," prompting young people to seek information among friends, increasing the risk of risky behaviors. Sexual satisfaction is explored from different perspectives, including sexual activity, orgasm, emotional relationships, and psychological well-being. The text includes references to various studies that explore the relationship between sexual satisfaction and variables such as self-esteem, body image, intelligence quotient, and anxiety in university students. It is concluded that sexual satisfaction is a multifactorial issue that influences people's happiness. The proposed research aims to identify levels of sexual satisfaction in university students and contribute to future treatments and interventions to improve this area of their lives.

Deenz Histrionic Personality Scale, a purpose-built 20-item instrument, seeks to unravel the subtle nuances of subclinical traits associated with Histrionic Personality among college students. Developed with precision and care, the scale's primary goal is to identify individuals exhibiting a heightened inclination toward histrionic traits, while concurrently assessing the potential impact and likelihood of developing Histrionic Personality Disorder (HPD). Anchored in a commitment to early intervention and support, the scale's efficacy was rigorously examined in a case study involving 230 college students, comprising 131 males and 99 females. The study revealed the scale's accuracy in pinpointing students displaying impairment and tendencies toward clinical traits associated with Histrionic Personality. The findings underscore the Deenz Histrionic Personality Scale as a valuable tool for not only illuminating subclinical traits but also forecasting the trajectory toward clinically significant personality disorders. As a proactive measure, this scale holds promise in contributing to the holistic well-being of college students, emphasizing the importance of targeted interventions and support strategies. As further research unfolds, the scale's role in refining our understanding of histrionic traits among college students becomes increasingly evident.

This study aims to explore the impact of migration as a central event in personal identity, spirituality, and religiousness on subjective well-being (SWB). The sample was composed of 204 Latin American immigrants living in Israel, with ages ranging from 18 to 80 years (M = 48.76; SD = 15.36) across both sexes (Men = 34.8%; Women = 65.2%). The results show that, when analyzing the effects on SWB, Positive and Negative Affect, Centrality of Event, Religious Crisis, and Spiritual Transcendence present as the most relevant explanatory variables within the models. However, contrary to expectation, the present study identifies positive associations between the centrality of migration and SWB. Motivations for emigration should be explored in further studies as they could be mediating the relationship between centrality of events and SWB.

This paper explores the correlation between binge eating behaviors and depression symptoms in adolescents. Understanding this relationship is crucial for effective diagnosis and treatment of these prevalent mental health conditions. The study involved 100 adolescents aged 13-19 years, utilizing standardized scales to measure binge eating behaviors and depression symptoms. Results showed a positive linear correlation (R = ~0.52) between binge eating behaviors and depression symptoms. Specific questions related to "boredom and eating habits" and "guilt after overeating" were significant predictors of depression symptom severity. Similarly, the depression symptom "feeling hopeless about the future" significantly predicted binge eating behavior severity. Consideration of comorbid mental health conditions is important for assessing and treating eating disorders. However, limitations included convenience sampling, lack of diversity, small sample size, and potential response bias. Future research should investigate causal relationships, underlying factors in binge eating disorder, and additional predictors for a comprehensive understanding of mood and eating disorders.

The adoption of online-based learning and the internet has had both a positive impact on students. This study aims to understand how social media literacy, guardian supervision, and self-discipline affects Online Privacy Risk during the Covid19 pandemic in India. This paper elaborated a quantitative method with SEM-PLS to raise the comprehension of the phenomenon studied. A questionnaire was voluntarily responded to approximately 300 high school students who engaged in online-based learning. The structural equation modeling estimation indicates that social media literacy, guardian supervision, and self-discipline influences Online Privacy Risk. However, guardian supervision failed in promoting students' self-discipline. These findings suggest that both social media literacy and guardian supervision needs to be penetrated to reduce the impact of Online Privacy Risk in the teaching and learning process. This is the first step for schools and parents’ alertness in assisting and considering the appropriate and safe media using technology
