This study examines the link between positive expectancies about the effects of drinking on sexual feelings, on the one hand, and drinking, on the other, across countries. The study uses representative surveys conducted between 1995 and 2004 in 11 countries participating in the GENACIS project (Gender, Alcohol and Culture: an International Study), analyzed by cross-country comparisons of frequencies of reporting three expectancy-items and exploratory multiple regression analyses of the relationship between expectancies about the effect of drinking on sexual feelings and annual volume of alcohol consumed. Both the cross-country comparisons and the multiple regression analyses show varying patterns across countries. In most countries where gender differences were found, it was more common among men than among women to expect drinking to be positively related to sexual feelings. This finding has potential implications for the prevention of gender-based sexual violence.
