Abstract:

Objective: To establish a short measure of attitudes toward sexual consent in the context of alcohol consumption. Methods: Using a multistage and systematic measurement development process, the investigators developed the Alcohol and Sexual Consent Scale using a sample of college students. Results: The resulting 12-item scale, the Alcohol and Sexual Consent Scale, was examined across a variety of validation measures. The measure is related to alcohol consumption, sexual habits, and sexual victimization and/or perpetration. Conclusions: The Alcohol and Sexual Consent Scale can be used to serve as an outcome measure in sexual assault prevention programming.
