The present study sought to examine the relationship been alcohol and risky sexual behavior by analyzing related variables. Particularly, this study examined the relationship between context and risky sexual behavior (when participants were drinking alcohol) on an event-based level. Secondly, this study examined how certain personality traits affect risky sexual behavior in general. Finally, an interaction between context and personality was tested for its effects on risky sexual behavior. Results suggested that context plays a role in risky sexual behavior, but that personality was not an important factor. Interaction effects were not found between these variables. Future research on risky sexual behavior could benefit from including the context of sexual encounters in the research design.
