The primary aim of this study was to investigate whether individual self-reports of perceived ability to use a condom correctly correlated with the actual ability to do so.
Participants in the study were 3,059 clients of a sexually transmitted disease clinic.
The findings revealed that the participants'perceived self-efficacy with regard to using a condom effectively was a poor indicator of their clinically demonstrared skills using a penile model as scored on the 6-point Condom Skills Index.
Condom skills, in general, were found to be at a moderate level only.
