Jumi Hayaki, associate professor of psychology
Jumi Hayaki, associate professor of psychology at Holy Cross, was recently the lead author on a study regarding the influence of alcohol and/or marijuana use on sexual behavior, Reuters reports.
Based on the study’s findings published in the American Journal on Addictions, drinking alcohol and smoking pot at the same time is more likely to increase the odds of unsafe sex for young women than for men.
“This is important because women could be especially vulnerable to the negative consequences of unprotected sex (e.g., unwanted pregnancy, STIs) when under the influence of alcohol and/or marijuana,” said Hayaki.
