Summary:

Sexually active undergraduates who watched a video about the risks of unprotected sex—and who were given a “friendship” bracelet and told to remember the dangers of unprotected sex when they looked at it—were more likely to use a condom over the next 5-7 weeks during sex than those who just watched the safe sex video or an unrelated video. The effect was greatest when people had sex after drinking, a state in which people are especially responsive to situational cues.
