Abstract Here, 1997/98 questionnaire data from 233 U of Rhode Island undergraduates are used to examine the factor structure of 16 items representing a sociocognitive model of drinking-related risky beliefs & behaviors regarding sexual activity (enhancement, risky sex, gender-role expectancy) & test the relationship of these three factors to three situational drinking subscales (convivial, personal-intimate, & negative coping). MANOVA showed significant main effects for the three subscales & gender, & drinking context x gender interaction effects for risky sexual beliefs & behaviors. Theoretical & practical implications are examined. 2 Tables, 30 References. Adapted from the source document
