Greenberg, Bradley S.; Busselle, Rick W.
Journal of Communication, v46 n4 p153-60 Aut 1996
Finds that soap operas analyzed in 1994 contain more frequent sexual incidence on an hourly average, both within the same soaps analyzed a decade earlier and even more so on two additional very popular soaps. Shows that the more frequent sex centers on physical intercourse, primarily among partners not married to anyone; and sexual activity is visual as well as verbal. (SR)
