A Hangover and a One-Night Stand: Alcohol and Risky Sexual Behaviour among Female Students at an Australian University
Gilchrist, Heidi; Smith, Kylie; Magee, Christopher A.; Jones, Sandra
Youth Studies Australia, v31 n2 p35-43 Jun 2012
Excessive alcohol consumption and heavy episodic drinking is increasingly common among female university students. This trend is concerning given that excessive alcohol consumption and binge drinking have several adverse effects, including increased levels of risky sexual behaviour. The findings presented here are the first step in establishing an evidence base regarding the relationship between university students' alcohol consumption and risky sexual behaviour in an Australian context. The results of this study provide a platform for further research as well as for the development of specific interventions in the area of female university students' sexual health.
