Five-hundred eighty (N=580) college students participated in this study. Exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis was conducted explore and test the derived factor structures. The exploratory results revealed four dimensions: Partner’s Pleasure, Sexual Prejudices, Appropriation, and Assertiveness. This structure was later collapsed in favor of a simpler and better fitting 3-factor model.
