As expected, the RCUSS was also negatively, and weakly, correlated with Rosenbaum's (1980) self-control schedule (SCS), r(330) = -.24, p < .001, indicating that greater general resourcefulness leads to less endorsement of reasons for consenting to unwanted sexual activities.
As was the case with the reasons for consent scale (RCUSS), the SGIE was also correlated with number of casual dating partners r(330) = .29, p < .001 and number of steady partners r(330) = .23, p < .001.
A standard multiple regression analysis performed on sexual resourcefulness (SRS) for the four new scales (Table 5) showed that 63% of the total variance was accounted for by all of the independent variables with the unique variance accounted for by each scale as follows: RCUSS (14%), SSE (7%), SCS (2%), and SES (1%).
Standard multiple regression was also performed on giving-in to unwanted sexual advances/activity (SGIE) for the independent variables SRS, SCS, RCUSS, SSE, and SES.
(2009), namely, the measures of sexual self-efficacy (SSE), sexual giving-in experiences (SGIE), sexual resourcefulness (SRS), and reasons for consenting to unwanted sexual activity (RCUSS), were thoroughly and soundly supported in the current study.
For example, the RCUSS could be used on its own to examine women's motives for engaging in unwanted sexual activity.
Alcohol use, body image, media and peer group influence have all been related to increased sexual risk behaviour (Cerwonka, Isbell, & Hansen, 2000; Hittner & Kennington, 2008; Littleton, Breitkopf, & Berenson, 2005) some of which may reflect consenting (RCUSS) and/or giving in (SGIE).
