Mental Health and Sexual Self-Concept Discrepancies in a Sample of Young Black Women.
Holmes, Marcelle Christian
Journal of Black Psychology, v28 n4 p347-70 Nov 2002
Addressed the mental health consequences of sexual self-concept discrepancies among young black women. Participant surveys examined differences between their actual, ideal, and "ought" sexual selves. Overall, sexual self-concept discrepancies did not predict mental health outcomes. Women who were bothered by the differences between whom they actually were and who they ideally wanted to be sexually were more likely to report dejection. (SM)
