Anti-Social Behavioral Correlates of Self-Reported Sexual Aggression.
White, Jacquelyn W.; And Others
Two studies examined the hypothesis that sexually coercive behavior is part of a larger constellation of non-sexual deviant behaviors. The first study considered the relationship between various antisocial intentions and self-reported levels of sexual aggression. As a part of a larger study, college men (N=108) responded to the Sexual Experiences Survey, an extended Likelihood of Behaviors Schedule, items from the Sexual Motivation Survey, and attitudinal scales. Analysis strongly supported the hypothesis that sexually aggressive behavior is part of a general pattern of antisocial behaviors. In the second study, as a part of a larger project, men (N=210) responded to the Sexual Experience Survey, as well as items assessing alcohol and drug use, attitudes towards casual sex, number of sexual partners, moral self-concept, and religiosity. The results revealed significant positive correlations between alcohol and drug use, the number of different sexual partners, and a positive attitude toward casual sex. A negative correlation was found between alcohol and drug use, religiosity, and a moral self-concept. Findings supported the hypothesis that sexual aggression is part of a larger constellation of antisocial behaviors. Future research on sexually assaultive men would benefit from the inclusion of antisocial behaviors and should recognize sexual aggression as a part of a larger constellation of deviant and criminal behaviors.
