Instructions for Sexual Behavior


This study involves judgments of hypothetical sexual situations. If you do not want to read about sexual situations, and make judgments about them, please choose another study. The purpose of this experiment is to determine how a person's physical attractiveness, number of previous sexual partners and prior drug use influence a person's judged willingness to engage in one act of unprotected sexual intercourse.

Attractiveness has three levels: Not Attractive, Attractive and Very Attractive. The attractiveness refers to how attractive the person is to you. A person who is "Not Attractive" is normal or "average" in appearance, but not ugly or repulsive. The person is just not considered particularly attractive. "Attractive" refers to a person that you find appealing based on their looks, but not as attractive as the person you think is "Very Attractive", who you find very very appealing.

The person's previous number of sexual partners refers to information you have received from the person. The person says that he or she has had either 0, 3 or 20 different sexual partners.

The person's previous drug use refers to what the person has said. "No" means that the person says that he or she has never used intravenous (needle) drugs, "Yes" means that the person says that he or she has injected drugs with a needle.

In some cases, you will not know all of the information. In cases where the person has not told you about their sexual history or previous drug use, you will see "(unknown)". Realize also that people do not always describe their sexual or drug experiences accurately. In all cases, you must base your judgment on information that you do have. Please rate each case on how willing you would be to engage in one act of unprotected sexual intercourse with this person, by typing a number from 1 to 5, based on following scale:

1 = Not willing
2 = Slightly willing
3 = Willing
4 = Very willing
5 = Very very willing
