The relationship of the use of alcohol or drugs in conjunction with sexuaJl activity and the use of condoms and other contraceptives was examined among 1378 respondents in a household survey of two urban areas of Scotland.
In bivariate analyses, respondents who reported having had sex under the influence of alcohol or drugs were no less likely than respondents with no such experience to report consistent use of condoms, and having had sex under the influence of substances was positively related to lifetime condom use.
Multivariate analyses that included gender and urban area as predictors yielded similar findings.
The results suggest that individuals who combine sex with alcohol or drugs are not necessarily more likely to engage in riskier sex.
