Alcohol use has been known to cause impaired judgment and thus greatly impacts the definition of consent with concern to sexual behaviors, however alcohol and sexual encounters seem to be positively linked. The current study examined how the presence of alcohol in a dating situation can impact perceptions of how likely a sexual encounter is to occur at the end of the date. Participants were provided a brief, hypothetical dating scenario in which the female character either chose to drink alcohol or soda. Participants then rated the likelihood that a sexual encounter would occur at the end of the date. As hypothesized, participants rated the likelihood of a sexual encounter higher in the condition where the female character drank alcohol than in the condition where the female drank a non-alcoholic drink.
