Personality correlates of sexual risk-taking among men

Abstract

Seventy-four sexually active young men completed the Eysenck Personality Questionnaire short scale and a questionnaire designed to measure sexual risk-taking. Extraversion was positively correlated with 'French' kissing. The lie scale correlated negatively with performing oral sex. Psychoticism correlated positively with a number of risky sexual practices including: having sex with an intravenous drug user, having unprotected anal intercourse and having sexual relations with different partners. Neuroticism did not correlate with sexual risk-taking.
