This study investigated the association between the personality dispositions of sexual sensation seeking (SSS) and nonsexual experience seeking (Non-SES), and risky sexual behaviors among 308 sexually active South African university students. The students provided retrospective reports of their sexual behavior and completed measures of SSS and Non-SES. Findings, based on a sample of sexually active students, suggest an association between SSS and a number of risky sexual behaviors. Intervention strategies are discussed, incorporating a particular reference to cultural context.
