Several studies suggest that women are less likely to buy, carry, or keep condoms at home than men. This study assesses if women exposed to interventions supportive of buying and carrying condoms would have more favorable attitudes towards condoms and higher actual condom use than women exposed to general information regarding condom use. It also compared the effectiveness of modeling with modeling + role-play as condom buying/carrying interventions. Results were analyzed using a 3 (information, information + modeling, information + modeling + role play) x 2 (posttest/follow-up) split-plot ANOVA. There was no significant difference between groups, no significant differences between posttest and follow-up, and no significant interaction for any measure. The differences between groups approached significance for the CUSES. The Sexual History Questionnaire revealed significant changes on four of the behavioral items. Implications of the study are discussed.
