Safe Sex and Compliance-Gaining Strategy Usage among College Students.
Myers, Scott A.; Merkin, Rebecca
A study examined the likelihood of using compliance-gaining strategies when engaging in safe-sex situations. A sample of 110 college students from a large midwestern university completed a 16-item questionnaire that utilized G. Marwell and D. Schmitt's compliance-gaining typology. Results indicate that female college students were significantly more likely than males to use nine of the strategies: threat, expertise-positive, expertise-negative, aversive stimulation, self-feeling-positive, self-feeling-negative, altercasting-positive, altercasting-negative, and altruism. Findings suggest that males and females differ somewhat in their use of compliance-gaining strategies when engaged in safe sex situations. Future research should investigate specifically the content of the communication. (Two tables of data are included; 22 references and the survey instrument are attached.) (Author/RS)
