Abstract The present work was focused on the problems of children and young people from dysfunctional families where they were exposed to threatening contexts for their health and physical and emotional integrity. The overall objective was to understand conceptions and phenomena associated with the affective-sexual behaviors of young people who have lived in host institutions, in order to create structures that encourage the acquisition of personal and social skills. To intervene on this issue an action-research methodology was followed. In the diagnostic phase semi-structured interviews were conducted and guided by a script. Questions about affiliations and sexuality and affection have been raised and reports of significant experiences of young adults were collected. We interviewed 5 ex-residents in host institutions of children and youth (LIJ), of both sexes (3 boys and 2 girls) aged between 18 and 24 years. Data obtained by interviews were subjected to discourse analysis, being a priori analysis categories based on the content of the questions. The results obtained should be noted that none of the participants said full reasons for their institutionalization, ignoring or rejecting the adversity and mistreatment/abuse suffered in their childhood. Youth perception about the dialogues adults held with the girls was that it differed from those established with the boys, talking with girls about “menstruation” and “body issues” (with marked concern about pregnancy) and discussing with boys about sex and disease prevention. Without reports about relationships and intimacy/confidence, it seems urgent that adults of reference be able to discuss feelings and emotions and to assist young people in decision-making and in seeking resolution to their affective-sexual problems.
