Short Measure

ITEMS:

Instructions: Only consider times when your partner did not do anything to pressure you:

1. How many times have you engaged in sexual intercourse with your current partner because you felt like if you refused the relationship would be damaged?
2. How many other times have you ever engaged in sexual intercourse with your current partner even though you didn't want to?
3. How many other times have you been in a situation with your current partner in which you consented to engage in sexual intercourse that you did not desire? In other words, your partner wanted to have sex, you did not want to, but you actually freely and willingly chose to do so anyway?
