We examined the covariation of substance use and various sexual behaviors in 2204 students from one area of South Africa. There was an association between lifetime substance use and both sexual activity and certain sexual risk behaviors. At the most recent sexual encounter, there was an association between substance use and being unfamiliar with one's sexual partner, but no association between substance use and condom use.
