2016 Historical child sexual abuse in England and Wales: the role of historians

This paper examines the ethical and methodological concerns that have influenced a joint project that intends to map the social, legal, and political reactions to child sexual abuse in England and Wales over the twentieth century. The etymological conundrum of looking for past records of child sex abuse was highlighted. It then focuses on the gaps and silences in the archive, most problematically in relation to the voices and experiences of victims and survivors themselves, acknowledging that research tools will always be limited. Finally, it covers moral concerns with the identification or anonymization of persons who have been charged and found guilty (as well as victims and survivors) when reporting study findings. The 1920s and 1950s, as well as education, were regarded as the main subjects of discussion.

2016 Changes in coming out milestones across five age cohorts

In five age cohorts, self-identified lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) individuals were compared in this quantitative study to evaluate differences in the coming out process. Participants completed the Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Identity Scale (LGBIS). (Mohr & Fassinger, 2000), disclosed the ages at which they reached significant turning points in the coming-out process, and provided demographic data and details about their upbringing. In general, this sample revealed two noteworthy trends: (a) a decline in the average age at which milestones are reached; and (b) the disappearance of the gender disparity in milestone attainment between men and women. The current study adds to and supports prior research that indicates a high correlation between early coming out and social acceptance of LGB people.

2014 Damned if you do, damned if you don’t…if you are a girl: Relational and normative contexts of adolescent sexting in the United States.

Using open-ended questionnaires, this study investigates the relational, normative, gender, and age dynamics of adolescent sexting in the USA. In the study, boys and girls were equally likely to engage in sexting, but girls were more likely to feel pressure to do so, especially from boys. Whether they had sex or not, girls were frequently labelled severely (e.g., “slut”) but boys were essentially exempt from censure. The normative environment and the need for acceptance, despite some adolescents’ expressed concerns that sexting would harm their reputations, propelled some of them to engage in the behavior, according to research. In the discussion, implications and potential directions for further study are presented.

2014 CANTOR Elevated rates of a typical handedness in pedophilia: Theory and implication.

Genetics, prenatal stress, and postnatal environmental circumstances are only a few of the many variables that affect handedness. Numerous populations with neuropathology have been found to have a characteristic handedness, whether it takes the form of greater sinistralIty or less lateral preference. A typical sexual tendencies, particularly paedophilia, are associated with lower frequencies of right-handedness. In order to identify the pattern of a typical handedness in paedophilia, this paper analyses the biggest sample of individuals who have ever had phallometric assessment. In particular, this work builds on past research’s dichotomous categorization of participants as either right- or left-handed and/or use of self-reported writing hand by utilizing the laterality quotient of the Edinburgh Handedness Inventory.

2011 Sexual function in women with a history of intra-familial childhood sexual abuse

In this study, the relationship between sexual issues and the degree of CSA was examined, as well as sexual function in women who had experienced severe intra-familial childhood sexual abuse (CSA). Due to severe CSA, which in turn led to dissatisfaction in their sexual life, a few number of women were given special attention in their psychotherapy. Both physical discomfort from affectionate touching and sexual dysfunction affected these ladies. Taking this into consideration, it went on to stress the significance of addressing sexuality and performing sexuality screenings in treatment.

2010 Sexual relationships following brain injury.

Sexual function is significantly impacted by brain impairment. Also, the impact of a brain damage on motor, sensory, cognitive, behavioral, and emotional function can either have a direct or indirect impact on sexual function. Furthermore, the prevalence and form of sexual dysfunction after traumatic brain injury are examined in studies. A suitable course of action for intervention is explored as well as ways to ascertain the nature of such sexual issues and proactive approaches to assessment and intervention is advocated.

2011 An investigation of the incidence of client-perpetrated sexual violence against male sex workers.

The occurrence and circumstances of client-perpetrated sexual violence against male sex workers are examined in this research study. In this study of 50 male escorts, four different methods—web surveys, tick-box questionnaires, telephone interviews, and in-person interviews—were used. It was discovered that client-perpetrated sexual violence in the context of male sex employment seems to be rare.

2010 Gender differences in the perceptions for the ideal sex partner

The study’s goal was to determine whether there were any gender variations in preferences for specific qualities in a sexual partner as well as how well men and women can predict the preferences of the other gender. For this investigation, several studies were conducted. The comparison between men’s reported preferences and women’s ratings regarding what they believed men preferred revealed that women overestimated men’s preference for a partner who compliments them during sex, while men underestimated women’s preference for a partner who expresses desire clearly and experiences orgasm quickly.

2010 What is sexual addiction?

This paper discussed sexual addiction as a complex topic that frequently prompts much negative judgement due to its recurrent patterns of betrayal, illumination of previously concealed sexual activities, exposure of unknowing partners to disease risk, and partner threat. Additionally, frequent sexual stimulation was reported to persist despite grave negative consequences in sexual addiction, which is a chronic, relapsing condition. Arguments were also made about sexual addiction as a type of impulse control disease, where it was viewed from the impulsive perspective as risk-takers who pursue pleasure without considering the effects on themselves and others. In this essay, a few further points were raised, such as the notions of relationship disorder and sexual addiction as subtypes of compulsive behavior.

2010 The impact of compulsive cybersex behaviors on the family.

The family is frequently ignored when treating compulsive and sexual addiction. This led to this study that was inspired by a quick survey that was completed by 91 women and three men who felt they had suffered major negative effects as a result of another person’s involvement in cybersex. This reveals more that this condition affects the family as a whole as well as the recognized patient, spouse, or partner. Couples in this article who separated or divorced reported that cybersex addiction was a significant contributing factor. Partners reported that they thought that having affairs online was just as emotionally unpleasant as having affairs in person or offline.
