Sexual coercion, verbal aggression, and condom use consistency among college students.
J Am Coll Health. 2011; 59(4):273-80.JA

Abstract

OBJECTIVE

The relationship between condom use and 2 less visible categories of intimate partner violence (IPV), sexual coercion and verbal aggression, was examined among college students.

METHODS

In March 2007 a random cross-sectional sample of undergraduates from the southeast region of the United States was taken to collect information about sexual coercion and verbal aggression, in addition to condom use consistency. Alcohol use was also assessed.

RESULTS

Of the 142 participants, 31.7% reported being victims of sexual coercion, and 78% reported having verbally aggressive partners. Participants who reported experiencing sexual coercion in their relationship were significantly less likely to consistently use condoms. Additionally, alcohol use before or during episodes of verbal aggression was negatively associated with condom use. Alcohol use was also significantly associated with heightened incidents of coercion and aggression.

CONCLUSIONS

Results indicate that among college students, the presence of sexual coercion adversely affects condom use, as does alcohol use.
