A healthy lifestyle is a reflection of the interdependence of a person's health and his lifestyle. The way of life is the interaction of a person with the social environment, a system of ideas about moral and ethical values and guidelines, stereotypes of behavior, the implementation of strategies based on adaptation to laws, rules, norms and traditions of society, living conditions. A person's way of life consists of: standard of living (a measure of satisfaction of material, cultural, and spiritual needs), quality of life (the comfort of meeting a person's needs), and lifestyle (a behavioral feature of a person's life). The relevance of the issue of improving and perfecting health, components of a healthy lifestyle, opportunities for its implementation and means of influence is due to the fact that it is in the adolescent environment that certain norms and models of behavior are adopted, the multiplication of relevant knowledge and skills, awareness of needs, problems and motives, determination moral and value orientations, interests and ideas. Sexual education today is considered as a complex of knowledge about the anatomy of human genital organs and reproductive health, emotional relationships with a sexual partner, mutual responsibility for the consequences of such actions, family planning and birth control, other factors and components of human sexual behavior. However, for Ukraine, the issue of sex education is a sensitive, and sometimes vulnerable and silenced topic, especially if it concerns teenagers. In the article, the authors emphasize that sexual education should contribute to the formation of the necessary system of knowledge regarding the sexual sphere of adolescents' lives and be aimed at the awareness of adolescents about their own body and the age-related features of its functioning, about risk factors that cause sexually transmitted diseases, means of prevention, places where you can turn to for advice in the event of this problematic situation; prevention of unwanted pregnancy, regarding the rules of safe sexual behavior and a healthy lifestyle. The leading models of sexual education are the repressive, liberal, «golden middle» model. It has been proven that the adoption of one or another model in a specific society is regulated by the individual attitude to sexuality and sexual education of teenagers.
