Men and Women React Differently to Depictions of Non-Consensual Sex

New research in the Journal of Sexual Medicine discusses the responses of men and women who watch videos of non-consensual sex. 

The study involved 29 men and 45 women who agreed to watch two video clips in a lab. Each clip showed forced heterosexual sex. In one clip, the woman was the recipient. In the other, it was the man.

Researchers used questionnaires and pupil dilation technology to evaluate the participants' responses. 

They found that men responded more positively to the clip showing the woman subjected to forced sex. There were no gender differences for the clip that showed the man as the recipient.

However, the authors advised interpreting the results with caution. Learn more
