This study investigated the psychometric properties and aspects of the construct validity of the Rape Conformity Assessment (RCA). In addition, the test–retest reliability and internal consistency of Malamuth's Attraction to Sexual Aggression scale and Burt's Rape Myth Acceptance, Acceptance of Interpersonal Violence (AIV), and Adversarial Sexual Beliefs scales were investigated. One hundred twenty-six undergraduate males in three samples served as subjects. Findings suggest that the RCA may be useful as a disguised measure that addresses the social desirability problem in rape prevention and treatment outcome research. With the exception of the AIV, the psychometric properties of the administered scales were adequate. The conformity manipulation revealed strong effects, which suggests that the potential to rape should be viewed not only as a trait but also as having situational components.
