The objective of the study was to examine the association between cross generational sex and selected background factors among female youths in Uganda. The study focused on secondary data from 2016 Uganda Demographic and Health Survey individual recode file. It considered a total of 4790 of weighted cases of female youths in age group 15-24 years from the entire total. Female youths who experienced (CGS) most of them had higher education (95%), were from rural areas (15%),currently in union (17%), were Muslims (17%), were from western Uganda (15%), they were working(14%) and nearly from richer households(18%). The findings revealed that the factors influencing cross generational sex were primarily due to socio-economic factors like education status, place of residence and marital status. Basing on the key findings the researcher recommends intensive girl child education and sensitisation of female youth through encouraging good morals of a meaningful marriage union and making them aware of the dangers related to cross generational sex.
