Sociosexual Identity Development and Sexual Risk Taking of Acculturating Collegiate Gay and Bisexual Men
Wilkerson, J. Michael; Brooks, Ann K.; Ross, Michael W.
Journal of College Student Development, v51 n3 p279-296 May-Jun 2010
How collegiate gay and bisexual men acquire a sociosexual identity appears to affect their sexual health. Analysis of interview data from 25 self-identified collegiate gay or bisexual men resulted in the development of a collective sexual script for men acquiring a sociosexual identity. Changes in an individual's acting out of a cultural scenario seemed to occur when resolving intrapsychic conflict arising from new sexual experiences. Persons working with young collegiate gay and bisexual men may find this sexual script helpful when developing sex education programs. (Contains 4 tables.)
