Sexually Explicit Media, Gender Differences, and Evolutionary Theory.
Malamuth, Neil M.
Journal of Communication, v46 n3 p8-31 Sum 1996
Notes that media scholars often resist the use of the evolutionary paradigm. Discusses two problems: an overly simplistic view of evolutionary models; and a distrust of ideological implications. Develops an evolutionary model proposing that gender differences in the consumption of sexually explicit media is, in part, the result of inherited differences in evolved sexuality mechanisms interacting with environmental forces.
