How do contextual factors and gender differences influence college students' safer sex practices?

Journal of HIV/AIDS Prevention and Education for Adolescents and Children 2(2): 33-49
How do contextual factors and gender differences influence college students' safer sex practices?
Young adults in the 1990s are faced with potentially severe consequences for engaging in risky sexual behaviours. Unwanted pregnancy or sexually transmitted diseases have influenced sexual decision-making for many years, but today the newer risk of contracting the HIV/AIDS virus adds a life-threatening consequence. This research project tested a comprehensive model of sexuality using a sample of late adolescents. We surveyed 291 students enrolled in an undergraduate college course.
