Effects of Sex, Race, and Education on the Timing of Coming Out among Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Adults in the U.S.

Arch Sex Behav 2020 Jul 7. Epub 2020 Jul 7.

Kansas City Federal Statistical Research Data Center, U.S. Census Bureau, 1 Memorial Drive, Kansas City, MO, USA.

Sexual identity formation or "coming out" as lesbian, gay, or bisexual (LGB) involves a complex process including both private realization and public disclosure. Private realization refers to the process through which an individual becomes aware of their LGB identity, whereas public disclosure reflects when an individual discloses their identity to another person. Sex, race, and class affect the timing of these processes across the life course. Read More

Playing Recognition Politics: Queer Theoretical Reflections on Lesbian, Gay, and Queer Youth Social Policy in Australia in the 1980s and 1990s.

Arch Sex Behav 2020 Jul 5. Epub 2020 Jul 5.

School of Sociology, Research School of Social Sciences Building 22, Haydon Allen Building, The Australian National University, Canberra, ACT, 2601, Australia.

This article provides a queer theoretical reflection on the emergence of lesbian, gay, and queer (LGQ) youth as subjects of policy attention in Australia in the late twentieth century. In particular, it focuses on the ways in which specific forms of social, bureaucratic, and organizational recognition have given shape to LGQ youth as categorical policy objects. To this end, this article critically interrogates social policy related to the provision of funding for LGQ youth support during the 1980s and 1990s in two Australian states: New South Wales and Western Australia.

Handedness and Birth Order Among Heterosexual Men, Gay Men, and Sao Praphet Song in Northern Thailand.

Arch Sex Behav 2020 Jul 5. Epub 2020 Jul 5.

Department of Psychology, University of Toronto Mississauga, 3359 Mississauga Road North, Mississauga, ON, L5L 1C6, Canada.

Previous research has examined handedness and birth order to inform sexual orientation and gender identity/role expression development; however, sexual orientation and gender identity/role expression have rarely been disentangled to provide a more nuanced perspective. In Thailand, we investigated sexual orientation and gender identity simultaneously via comparison of 282 heterosexual men, 201 gay men, and 178 sao praphet song-i.e. Read More

Involuntary Childlessness and Marital Infidelity Among Women in Sub-Saharan African Countries: An Assessment of the Moderating Role of Women's Education.

Arch Sex Behav 2020 Jul 3. Epub 2020 Jul 3.

Demography and Population Studies Programme, Schools of Public Health and Social Sciences, University of the Witwatersrand, 1 Jan Smuts Avenue, Braamfontein, Johannesburg, 2000, South Africa.

A considerable number of married women in sub-Saharan African countries are childless and may be likely to engage in marital infidelity to avoid social stigma, economic insecurities, and other debilitating experience associated with being involuntarily childless. This study sought to investigate the relationship between involuntary childlessness and marital infidelity and how it may be moderated by women's educational attainment. Data were obtained from 23,847 women in their first union for at least 2 years and participated in the demographic and health surveys of five sub-Saharan African countries comprising Cameroon, Gabon, Lesotho, Liberia, and Sierra Leone.

Gay Voice: Stable Marker of Sexual Orientation or Flexible Communication Device?

Arch Sex Behav 2020 Jul 3. Epub 2020 Jul 3.

Dipartimento di Psicologia dello Sviluppo e della Socializzazione, University of Padova, Via Venezia 8, 35122, Padua, Italy.

Listeners rely on vocal features when guessing others' sexual orientation. What is less clear is whether speakers modulate their voice to emphasize or to conceal their sexual orientation. We hypothesized that gay individuals adapt their voices to the social context, either emphasizing or disguising their sexual orientation. Read More

Gender Nonconformity of Bisexual Men and Women.

Arch Sex Behav 2020 Jun 30. Epub 2020 Jun 30.

Department of Psychology, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, USA.

The degree to which bisexual-identified individuals are distinct from either heterosexual or homosexual individuals in their sexual orientation is an ongoing debate. We examined potential differences between these groups with respect to a strong correlate of sexual orientation, gender nonconformity (femininity in males, masculinity in females). Across pooled data, we compared self-reports of childhood gender nonconformity (n = 919) and adulthood gender nonconformity (n = 1265) and observer ratings of adulthood gender nonconformity (n = 915) between sexual orientations.

Dealing with Moral Challenges in Treatment of Transgender Children and Adolescents: Evaluating the Role of Moral Case Deliberation.

Arch Sex Behav 2020 Jun 26. Epub 2020 Jun 26.

Department of Medical Humanities, Amsterdam Public Health Research Institute, Amsterdam University Medical Centers, location VU University Medical Center, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Treatment teams providing affirmative medical transgender care to young people frequently face moral challenges arising from the care they provide. An adolescent's capacity to consent, for example, could raise several issues and challenges. To deal with these challenges more effectively, several Dutch treatment teams started using a relatively well-established form of clinical ethics support (CES) called Moral Case Deliberation (MCD).

The (Continuous) Nature of Perceived Gender Counter-Stereotype: A Threshold Model of Gender Stereotype Maintenance.

Arch Sex Behav 2020 Jun 26. Epub 2020 Jun 26.

School of Psychology, Center for Studies of Social Psychology, Central China Normal University, Wuhan, 430079, China.

People often expect men and women to look, act, and think like typical members of their gender groups. When men and women deviate from gender-stereotypical expectations across various domains, people tend to denigrate them, compared to those who follow stereotypical expectations. This derogatory attitude-termed the backlash effect-has been well supported by psychological research. Read More

Spanish Translation, Adaptation, and Validation of the Multidimensional Condom Attitudes Scale with Young Colombian Men and Women.

Arch Sex Behav 2020 Jun 25. Epub 2020 Jun 25.

SexLab KL, School of Psychology, Fundación Universitaria Konrad Lorenz, Bogotá, 110111, Colombia.

Infection by HIV/AIDS or other STIs and unplanned pregnancies are sexual health problems of considerable impact around the world. Condoms are the only method that prevents all those risks, and attitudes toward the use of condoms are among the best predictors of their consistent use. The purpose of the present study was to translate, adapt, and validate a Spanish-language version of the Multidimensional Condom Attitudes Scale (MCAS) using a sample of young people from Colombia.

The Erogenous Mirror: Intersubjective and Multisensory Maps of Sexual Arousal in Men and Women.

Arch Sex Behav 2020 Jun 12. Epub 2020 Jun 12.

Department of Psychology, Royal Holloway University of London, Egham, Surrey, UK.

Erogenous zones of the body are sexually arousing when touched. Previous investigations of erogenous zones were restricted to the effects of touch on one's own body. However, sexual interactions do not just involve being touched, but also involve touching a partner and mutually looking at each other's bodies. Read More

Prevalence and Predictors of Sexual Difficulties and Associated Distress Among Partnered, Sexually Active Older Women in Norway, Denmark, Belgium, and Portugal.

Arch Sex Behav 2020 Jun 12. Epub 2020 Jun 12.

Department of Psychology, University of Oslo, Oslo, Norway.

There has been little comparative, cross-cultural research on sexual difficulties and associated distress, and factors associated with these, among older women. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate prevalence rates of sexual difficulties, distress related to these difficulties, and associated sociodemographic, relational, and health factors, among sexually active older women (60-75 years) in committed relationships across four European countries (Norway, Denmark, Belgium, and Portugal). These data could inform us about what differentiates women who do and do not experience distressing sexual difficulties and facilitate the identification of older women who might benefit from clinical interventions as well as the development of new interventions.

Use of the Bogus Pipeline Increases Sexual Concordance in Women But Not Men.

Arch Sex Behav 2020 Jul 5;49(5):1517-1532. Epub 2020 Jun 5.

Department of Psychology, Queen's University, 62 Arch Street, Kingston, ON, K7L 3N6, Canada.

Sexual concordance-the agreement between physiological (genital) and psychological (emotional) sexual arousal-is, on average, substantially lower in women than men. Following social role theory, the gender difference in sexual concordance may manifest because women and men are responding in a way that accommodates gender norms. We examined genital and self-reported sexual arousal in 47 women and 50 men using a condition known to discourage conformity to gender norms (i. Read More

LGBQ+ Self-Acceptance and Its Relationship with Minority Stressors and Mental Health: A Systematic Literature Review.

Department of Psychology, Henry Wellcome Building, Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology, and Neuroscience, King's College London, De Crespigny Park, London, SE5 8AF, UK.

Many individuals who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer, and with other non-heterosexual orientations (LGBQ+) experience stigma, prejudice, and/or discrimination because of their sexuality. According to minority stress and identity development theories, these experiences can contribute to difficulties with self-acceptance of sexuality. Lower self-acceptance is considered a risk factor for adverse mental health outcomes. Read More

Types of Group Sex and Their Association with Different Sexual Risk Behaviors Among HIV-Negative Men Who Have Sex with Men.

Arch Sex Behav 2020 Aug 4;49(6):1995-2003. Epub 2020 Jun 4.

Department of Infectious Diseases Research and Prevention, Public Health Service Amsterdam, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

The current study sought to identify types of group sex acts among HIV-negative men who have sex with men (MSM) and assess their association with different sexual risk behaviors using cross-sectional data of group sex acts reported during 6 waves (2015-2018) of the Amsterdam MSM Cohort Study. Latent class analysis was performed to identify group sex types based on size, familiarity with partners, location, planning, and drug use. Associations between group sex types and sexual behaviors were evaluated using logistic regression with generalized estimating equations, employing the sample mean as a reference. Read More

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, IWK Health Centre, Halifax, NS, Canada.

Despite the many sexual concerns experienced by new parents, and their reported desire for more information on this topic, both parents and healthcare providers remain reticent to broach the subject. The goal of this project was to disseminate evidence-based knowledge from our prior research in a way that was accessible, engaging, and would spark further interest and communication for both new parents and healthcare providers. We convened a multidisciplinary advisory group that also involved community parents who provided feedback at all phases of this project. Read More

Illness, Social Disadvantage, and Sexual Risk Behavior in Adolescence and the Transition to Adulthood.

Arch Sex Behav 2020 May 27. Epub 2020 May 27.

Consortium for Families and Health Research, University of Utah, 380 S 1530 E, Salt Lake City, UT, 84112, USA.

This study investigated the influence of illness on sexual risk behavior in adolescence and the transition to adulthood, both directly and through moderation of the impact of social disadvantage. We hypothesized positive effects for social disadvantages and illness on sexual risk behavior, consistent with the development of faster life history strategies among young people facing greater life adversity. Using the first two waves of the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health, we developed a mixed-effects multinomial logistic regression model predicting sexual risk behavior in three comparisons: risky nonmonogamous sex versus safer nonmonogamous sex, versus monogamous sex, and versus being sexually inactive, by social characteristics, illness, interactions thereof, and control covariates.

In this article, we introduce a more sensitive approach to assess how the relative characteristics of sex acts may determine the level of risk in which an individual chooses to engage.

An Experimental Investigation of Variations in Judgments of Hypothetical Males and Females Initiating Mixed-Gender Threesomes: An Application of Sexual Script Theory.

Arch Sex Behav 2020 May 22. Epub 2020 May 22.

Department of Psychology, University of New Brunswick, Fredericton, NB, Canada.

Although many young adults are interested in mixed-gender threesomes (MGTs), little research has assessed attitudes toward them. Yet, MGTs offer a rare context to investigate how consensually nonmonogamous sexual encounters and involvement with same-sex others influence attitudes. Thus, by adopting sexual script theory as a framework, the current study compared three dimensions of character judgments (cognitive abilities, morality, partner quality) and assumptions about the sexual history of hypothetical males and females who initiated a MGT (two females and one male; two males and one female) or mixed-sex dyadic sexual activity with a casual or committed partner.

Experimental Evidence for Sex Differences in Sexual Variety Preferences: Support for the Coolidge Effect in Humans.

Arch Sex Behav 2020 May 21. Epub 2020 May 21.

Psychology Department, University at Albany, State University of New York, Albany, NY, USA.

We examined sex differences in preferences for sexual variety and novelty to determine whether the Coolidge effect plays a role in human sexuality. In two experimental studies that employed different manipulations, we found converging evidence that men showed a greater preference for variety in potential short-term mates than did women. In the first study, men (n = 281) were more likely than women (n = 353) to select a variety of mates when given the opportunity to distribute chances to have sex with different individuals in hypothetical situations.

Arch Sex Behav 2020 May 19. Epub 2020 May 19.

, Leipzig, Germany.

The Irish Study of Sexual Health and Relationships, based on a nationally representative sample of Republic of Ireland adults in 2004-2005, was used to examine adult adjustment in individuals who had their first sexual intercourse as a minor with an adult. Participants were classified into one of four groups based on their age at first intercourse and their partner's age: minors under 18 with peers; minors under 16 with adults; minors 16 to 17 with adults; and adults with adults. Adjustment (health, general relationships, satisfaction with most recent sexual partner, self-confidence, education and career achievement, and sexual problems) was compared across groups separately by gender.
