Negotiating Power for Condom Use is a 3-item measure that captures women's anticipation of negative responses by steady sexual partners to a request for condom use.
Geographies Tested: United States of America
Populations Included: Female
Age Range: Adults
1. If you asked your steady partner to use a condom/rubber, do you think he would
refuse to have sex with you?
2. If you asked your steady partner to use a condom/rubber, do you think he would get violent?
3. If you asked your steady partner to use a condom/rubber, would he think you had sex with someone else?
Yes - 1
Probably yes - 2
Probably no - 3
No - 4
The mean of the item scores is calculated for the total measure score. Alternatively, items can be recoded as 1 “yes” or “probably yes” and 2 “probably no” or “no” and then items are summed.
