Heterosexual students were asked to recall two sexual encounters from the preceding six months: one in which they had unprotected intercourse ( « unsafe » encounter) and one in which they resisted a strong temptation to have unprotected intercourse ( « safe » encounter).
The aims were to record justifications for unprotected intercourse that respondents had given themselves during the unsafe encounter and to identify factors that distinguished between the encounters.
In respondents recalling an unsafe encounter (n=284), the most common self-justification reported was that there was no need for concern since measures to avoid pregnancy had been taken.
