This study was designed to determine the degree to which alcoholic women in early sobriety report sex guilt and sexual control in comparison to a matched sample of non-alcoholic women. It was hypothesized that alcoholic women would report more sex guilt and less control over their sex lives than non-alcoholic women. Sex guilt and lack of sexual control add another dimension into the problem of alcoholism among women, and as such provide an additional way to conceptualize this problem.
