Predicting the use of Sexual Initiation Tactics in a Sample of College Women - 2004 - Peter B. Anderson, Maria Newton
Significant attention has been focused on women’s initiation of sexual contact with men and the point at which this initiation becomes sexual aggression. The purpose of this study was to examine possible predictors of the use of three conceptually distinct sets of sexual initiation tactics: seduction, coercion, and force. [...] Survey respondents were 272, mostly white women students with a mean age of 26 years.[...]
The use of physical force tactics is an unusual behavior in women; only 12% of the respondents reported ever using any type of force strategy while 43% reported using a coercion strategy and 92% reported using a seduction strategy to initiate sex. [...] The results of this study can, with caution, be used to generalize beyond this population to college women, but not to other groups. These results also reflect the complexity of women’s sexual behaviors and motivations. Despite ten years of regular research in this area, we are just beginning to scratch the surface of understanding women’s initiation of sexual contact with men.
