The negative consequences of teenage sexual behavior are issues of concern in Malaysia and many other Muslim countries. In Malaysia, sexual health education is taught various subjects namely Islamic Education, Moral Education, Science, Additional Science and Biology. Current Malaysia Government implemented new sexual health education module in primary school on 2014. The aim of this paper is to review the current literature on school sex education and the role social factors play in teenage sexual behavior. This paper argues that school cannot stand alone provide sufficient guidance to change teenage sexual behavior. Cooperative between schools, young people, their families and communities is crucial to enhance the effectiveness of sex education. This information is important to facilitate the comprehensive sexual health education in Malaysian schools.
