This article explores the spectrum of the continuum of sexual violence and looks at the attitudes to dating violence of both female and male Thai adolescents from high school, vocational school and out of school. The findings show that men are more supportive of sexual violence, more often expressed by the Thai men without any formal education. Education also plays a role as those least supportive of gender-based violence are the ones who have completed high school education. Education is therefore an important factor in reducing GBV.
