Abstract: To ascertain a mechanism for forming tolerance towards a social minority, we focus on homosexuality as one representative of a sexual minority and examine what kinds of information sources on sexuality are associated with attitudes of tolerance towards homosexuality. According to the results from the OLS regression models using micro data from a national survey on Japanese high school students, getting information on “romantic relationships” through the Internet is positively associated with tolerance towards sexual behavior with a same-sex partner for both sexes. For women, sex education on physical aspects such as pregnancy and masturbation as well as sex education on gender equality show a positive relationship with tolerance. On the other hand, those who learn about sexual intercourse through sex education tend to show negative feelings towards homosexuality. Women who get information on “romantic relationships” through comics have a higher level of tolerance than those who depend on other media. The relationship between sex education and tolerance towards homosexuality is not clear for men, but those who learn about “romantic relationships” from senior students show negative attitudes towards homosexuality. Sexual information from the Internet or comics and gender equality in sex education may influence the development of tolerance. Our study also suggested that, for men, homo-social communication that enhances negative feelings towards homosexuality emerges in the teenage years.
