This study evaluates the Nollywood movies’ explicit contents and its effect on the sexual behaviour of youth in Nigeria. The research objectives were specifically to examine the impact of Nollywood movies on the sexual practices of adolescents.  In achieving these stratified random sampling technique was employed to randomly select 1000 senior secondary school students in Uyo and the basic research instrument used was the questionnaire which reliability coefficient was put at 0.86. Pearson Product Moment Correlation statistical tool was used in testing the various hypotheses. The findings revealed that there was a positive and significant relationship between Nollywood movies and the sexual practices of secondary school students in Uyo which in turn affect performance of school. Also that sexuality education and counseling by both teachers and parents/guardians at home and in schools would help in curbing the sexual indulgences of these children. Poor approaches to the sexual practices have resulted in high rate of HIV/AIDS and the likes.
