Adolescent Females' Idolization of Male Media Stars as a Transition into Sexuality.
Karniol, Rachel
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v44 n1-2 p61-77 Jan 2001
Examines whether feminine media stars idolized by adolescent girls provide a safe target of romantic love before girls start dating and become sexually active. Surveys of seventh and ninth grade Israeli girls indicate that idolizing feminine stars may be an intermediate step in a sequence that starts with idolizing females and continues to the idolization of masculine stars. Contains tables and references. (SM)
