The purpose of this study is to clarify whether the students who participated in peer sexual education as educators raised their self-positive-consciousness, and to clarify what kind of experience they obtained from activities they were involved in as educators. The participants were １１ nursing students who agreed to participate in and were in their final （fifth） year of a nursing program. They performed the peer sexual education to junior high school students. Before and after the delivery of the education, they were required to give their responses to the items in “Scale of Self-Positive-Consciousness”, and their responses were compared with those of ２８ nursing students in the control group. From the written responses of the participants, the descriptions which expressed their experience in the activities were extracted, and content analysis was performed on them. While the Self-Positive-Consciousness of the control group did not experience a change, the peer members’４ subscales changed significantly（p＜０．０５）. Also, the experience of the peer education was characterized as the following types : ［Realize the required skills and roles of an educator］, ［Aware of the enhancement in their own knowledge and understanding on gender］, and ［Realize a change in the way they grasp their own sexuality］. It was suggested that the processes involved in the preparation of peer sexual education are effective for educators to positively review their own selves.
