Examining the Relationship between Degree of Religiousness and Attitudes toward Elderly Sexual Activity in Undergraduate College Students
Bonds-Raacke, Jennifer M.; Raacke, John
College Student Journal, v45 n1 p134-142 Mar 2011
Research has been conducted on individual's knowledge and attitudes toward older adult sexuality. This includes investigating attitudes and knowledge of nursing home staff, college students, and the elderly themselves. The current experiment sought to replicate previous research findings by comparing college students' attitudes and knowledge of older adult sexuality to previous research findings with retirement home residents and the community of aged individuals. In addition, the current study added to this line of research by examining the relationship between college students' attitudes and knowledge of older adult sexuality and their degree of religiosity. Results indicated that degree of religiosity did indeed influence attitudes and knowledge of older adult sexuality. Implications of these findings are discussed. (Contains 1 table.)
