Unwanted Escalation of Sexual Intimacy: Male and Female Perceptions of Connotations and Relational Consequences of Resistance Messages.
Motley, Michael T.; Reeder, Heidi M.
Communication Monographs, v62 n4 p355-82 Dec 1995
Indicates that males do not understand that certain sexual resistance messages indicate resistance. Finds that resistance messages most often used by some women are the least understood by most men, suggesting that unwanted sexual escalation efforts might be minimized if men were to better understand women's resistance messages, and/or if women were to use clearer messages.
