Abstract: The current study attempted to determine the role of motives for playing drinking games in mediating the relationship between personality traits and sexual activity consequences of drinking games. Also, the study investigated whether there are gender differences in these motives. Fifty-seven undergraduate students, aged 19 to 24, were recruited from Nanyang Technological University (Singapore). Mediation analyses conducted following Baron and Kenny’s (1986) recommendations showed extraversion and sexual manipulation motives to be predictive of sexual activity consequences. Sexual manipulation motives were also found to partially mediate the relationship between extraversion and sexual activity consequences. Marginal gender differences were reported for sexual manipulation motives, but not for social lubrication, fun and celebration and novelty. Findings from the study supported the role of motives for drinking game participation as an area of theoretical concern. It was also demonstrated that drinking games and the motives for playing are accountable for the increase of alcohol-related sexual activities among college students. University’s intervention and prevention programs could address the role played by drinking games in sexual activity consequences and caution students about the risks involved. Future studies could examine personality traits at facet level to obtain more comprehensive results.
