Abstract

The purpose of the current study was to examine Transtheoretical Model (TTM) predictors of condom use in heterosexual men and to test the applicability of additional predictors of condom use (condom attitudes and interpersonal processes). Participants were 168 sexually active undergraduate men. Multiple regression analyses indicated that pros, condom self-efficacy, condom attitudes, and processes of change were significant predictors of condom use. Several variables added unique variance above and beyond others, and a final model accounted for 55% of the variance in condom use. Results underscore the importance of TTM variables and interpersonal processes such as partner support in heterosexual men. Suggestions for how these variables might be incorporated into interventions aimed at increasing condom use are discussed. Copyright © 2001 by Bellwether Publishing, Ltd.
