The paper discusses the resulting behavior of an over-consumption of alcohol and the existence of this behavior in university and college environments. The author finds that the consumption of alcoholic beverages can result in a decrease in awareness and judgment which can result in a person engaging in an activity which he/she might not have had if not under the influence. The writer looks at the damaging effects of an over-consumption of alcohol when coupled with sexual contact.

From the Paper:

"Alcohol also has some serious effects in regards to human sexual behavior. One of these effects is increased violence, and the increased probability of a sexual assault taking place. This has been a serious problem at most universities and colleges in Canada and the United States. Results from several empirical studies have suggested strong associations between alcohol consumption and sexual aggression on campus (Crowe & George, 1989; Commission on Substance Abuse at Colleges and Universities, 1994). This is a very common trend among the universities and colleges due to the heavy drinking that many of these individuals partake in, and or the illicit drugs that they may be using. In many situations the individual to which the sexual assault has taken place has been coerced under the influence of alcohol and or illegal drugs. In a Miller and Marshall (1987) study, 60% of the women who engaged in unwanted sexual intercourse reported that they had been using alcohol or other drugs when coerced."
