Women who put condoms on male partners: correlates of condom application.

Women who put condoms on male partners: correlates of condom application.
Women who put condoms on male partners: correlates of condom application.
Objective: To identify correlates of women applying condoms. Methods: Cross-sectional survey of 533 sexually-active women; questionnaire. Results: Of the condom users (n=322), 31.7 reported applying condoms at least oncean average on 59.7 of the occasions. Compared to nonappliers, appliers had more positive affect toward sexually related situations (erotophilia, P=.004) and a higher frequency of sex (P=.003). Condom users, compared to nonusers, were significantly younger (P=.001), were less likely to be in sexually exclusive relationships (P=.001) or married (P=.01), and reported more partners in the past 3 months (P=.001). Conclusions: Condom-applying women may have more positive attitudes toward sexuality and engage in a higher frequency of sexual activity.

Abstract

Objective: To identify correlates of women applying condoms. Methods: Cross-sectional survey of 533 sexually-active women; questionnaire. Results: Of the condom users (n=322), 31.7 reported applying condoms at least oncean average on 59.7 of the occasions. Compared to nonappliers, appliers had more positive affect toward sexually related situations (erotophilia, P=.004) and a higher frequency of sex (P=.003). Condom users, compared to nonusers, were significantly younger (P=.001), were less likely to be in sexually exclusive relationships (P=.001) or married (P=.01), and reported more partners in the past 3 months (P=.001). Conclusions: Condom-applying women may have more positive attitudes toward sexuality and engage in a higher frequency of sexual activity.
