Findings suggest there are benefits to addressing both planned and reactive decision-making processes in prevention efforts to reduce risky sexual behavior or to increase positive sexual experiences. However, interventions that encourage women to set behavioral intentions before going out (e.g., whether to engage in sex, with whom) may be less effective on days when they consume higher amounts of alcohol. EMA methods may be useful in developing alternative prevention strategies that address event-level risk.
