Alcohol and Condom Use Resistance in Sexually Coercive/Violent Men

Emerging scientific evidence demonstrates that men’s use of sexual coercion/violence (SCV) against women plays a critical role in risky sexual decision-making processes. This study aimed to 1) augment our understanding of the alcohol-SCV-risky sexual behavior nexus through an empirical examination of the influence of men’s alcohol intoxication on their commission of risky and violent sexual behaviors and 2) investigate the effects of alcohol intoxication and SCV history on men’s responses to a variety of women’s condom use requests.
