Abstract

The present study examined how the amount of effort an individual puts into gaining and retaining access to sexual partners may impact smoking behavior. Using a college sample, results supported the prediction that individuals who are high in mating effort would be more likely to try cigarettes and smoke in social situations. Interpretations, implications, and directions for future research are discussed.
