Valuing an adult university student about the sexual abuse account suffered in the childhood and adolescence as they are remembered subsequently and possible associations among sexual indicators of the Human Figure Drawing and in his sexual preferences and practices are the goals in this work. The sample was composed by 112 university students from the Pharmacy, Dentistry and Radiology school in a certain university in the south of Minas Gerais. A questionnaire about sexuality themes and the Human Figure Drawing were applied collectively. The results have proved that the account of sexual abuse or violence before the age of eighteen years old were low, which means that the individuals do not know how to distinguish sexual abuse from sexual violence. Most of the individuals have drawn using only one trace of sexual indicators and relation among sexual violence, sexual abuse and sexual indicators in the Human Figure Drawing wasn't established.
