Notches on the Bedpost: Generational Effects of Sexual Experience.
Newcomb, Michael D.
Psychology: A Quarterly Journal of Human Behavior, v23 n2-3 p37-46 1986
Tested correlates of sexual experience (lifetime number of sexual partners) for generational differences. Background variables were examined for those under and over 30 years. Results support the enhancement theory of sexual experience for men and many women under 30 (bolstering self-esteem), with older female samples reflecting a sexual facilitation (general involvement) or biological preparedness theory.
