Variables Related to Sexual Coercion: A Path Model.
Emmers-Sommer, Tara M.; Allen, Mike
For a study, a path model was developed and tested representing variables that relate to sexual coercion. Specifically, sex, who asked, who paid, relational stage, past/current relationship, attitudes, drug or alcohol use, coercion strategies, and victim resistance were proposed and their effects examined. Data were collected by using electronic data bases and a search of the reference section for applicable manuscripts. Results indicated that the level of actual or perceived coerciveness is a function of the level of coerciveness of the strategy, whether or not a prior relationship existed, and the attitude that person has toward women. Results also indicated determinations of whether a particular action is perceived as a rape or coerced depends on the attitudes of the person making the evaluation and the perception of the situation. Implications of the model are for educational and intervention efforts. (Contains a table of data, 2 figures, and 69 references.) (Author/CR)
