The De-Scent of Sexuality: Did Loss of a Pheromone Signaling Protein Permit the Evolution of Same-Sex Sexual Behavior in Primates?

Arch Sex Behav 2019 Apr 23. Epub 2019 Apr 23.

Neuroscience Program, Michigan State University, Giltner Hall, 293 Farm Lane, Room 108, East Lansing, MI, 48824-1101, USA.

Primate same-sex sexual behavior (SSSB) is rarely observed in strepsirrhine species, and only somewhat more common in platyrrhines, but is observed in nearly all catarrhine species, including humans, suggesting the common catarrhine ancestor as the origin of routine SSSB. In mice, disruption of the transient receptor potential cation channel 2 (TRPC2) gene, which is crucial for transducing chemosensory signals from pheromones in the vomeronasal organ, greatly increased the likelihood of SSSB. We note that catarrhine primates share a common deleterious mutation in this gene, indicating that the protein was dysfunctional in the common catarrhine ancestral primate approximately 25 mya (million years ago).

The Sexual Functioning of Gay and Bisexual Men Following Prostate Cancer Treatment: Results from the Restore Study.

Arch Sex Behav 2019 Apr 23. Epub 2019 Apr 23.

Division of Epidemiology and Community Health, School of Public Health, University of Minnesota, 1300 S. 2nd St., #300, Minneapolis, MN, 55454, USA.

Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (GBM). Few studies have assessed the effects of treatment on GBM's sexual behavior. For an online survey, 193 gay and bisexual men with prostate cancer were recruited from the North American's largest online cancer support group. Read More

Sexual Precedent's Effect on Sexual Consent Communication.

Arch Sex Behav 2019 Apr 23. Epub 2019 Apr 23.

Department of Health, Human Performance, and Recreation, University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, AR, 72701, USA.

Sexual consent is one's voluntary, sober, and conscious willingness to engage in a particular sexual behavior with a particular person within a particular context. Sexual precedent theory posits that people believe that engaging in consensual sex at one point in time implies consent to later sexual encounters with that person. By assuming consent once a sexual precedent is set, people may rely less on communication cues. Read More

Mating Strategies and the Masculinity Paradox: How Relationship Context, Relationship Status, and Sociosexuality Shape Women's Preferences for Facial Masculinity and Beardedness.

Arch Sex Behav 2019 Apr 23. Epub 2019 Apr 23.

School of Psychology, University of Queensland, St Lucia, QLD, 4072, Australia.

According to the dual mating strategy model, in short-term mating contexts women should forego paternal investment qualities in favor of mates with well-developed secondary sexual characteristics and dominant behavioral displays. We tested whether this model explains variation in women's preferences for facial masculinity and beardedness in male faces. Computer-generated composites that had been morphed to appear ± 50% masculine were rated by 671 heterosexual women (M age = 31. Read More

Effects of Individual Difference Variables, Gender, and Exclusivity of Sexual Attraction on Volunteer Bias in Sexuality Research.

Arch Sex Behav 2019 Apr 22. Epub 2019 Apr 22.

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

Sexuality research is often regarded as more intrusive than other types of research, contributing to sample self-selection biases. Researchers have consistently found that volunteers and non-volunteers for sexuality studies differ on a number of sexuality-related variables. Despite a large number of studies examining volunteer biases, relatively few have examined the effects of gender and exclusivity of sexual attraction on willingness to volunteer. Read More

Sexual and Relationship Interest, Knowledge, and Experiences Among Adolescents and Young Adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Arch Sex Behav 2019 Apr 22. Epub 2019 Apr 22.

Department of Special Education, College of Education, University of Missouri, Columbia, MO, USA.

Little research exists to describe sexual and romantic relationships among adolescents and young adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) from their perspectives. Sexuality and intimacy are developmentally important and influence health and quality of life for all adolescents and young adults, including those with ASD. This study explored and compared the sex and relationship experiences of 27 adolescents and young adults with ASD (males = 20). Read More

Understanding Women's Responses to Sexual Pain After Female Genital Cutting: An Integrative Psychological Pain Response Model.

Arch Sex Behav 2019 Apr 22. Epub 2019 Apr 22.

Program in Human Sexuality, Department of Family Medicine and Community Health, University of Minnesota Medical School, 1300 South Second Street, Suite 300, Minneapolis, MN, 55454, USA.

The World Health Organization estimates that over 200 million women and girls have experienced female genital cutting (FGC). Many women and girls who have undergone FGC have migrated to areas of the world where providers are unfamiliar with the health needs associated with FGC. Both providers in Western healthcare systems and female immigrant and refugee patients report communication difficulties leading to distrust of providers by women who have experienced FGC. Read More

Predicting Sexual Victimization Among College Students in Chile and Turkey: A Cross-Cultural Analysis.

Arch Sex Behav 2019 Apr 8. Epub 2019 Apr 8.

Department of Psychology, University of Potsdam, Karl-Liebknecht-Straße 24-25, 14476, Potsdam, Germany.

To address the shortage of cross-cultural research on vulnerability factors of sexual victimization, this two-wave longitudinal study examined predictors of sexual victimization among female and male college students in Chile (N = 1098) and Turkey (N = 885). These two countries were selected based on theoretical considerations regarding religiosity and gender inequality. A path model was tested that conceptualized participants' risky scripts for consensual sex, risky sexual behavior, sexual self-esteem, refusal assertiveness, and religiosity at T1 as predictors of sexual victimization in the following 12 months, as assessed at T2, mediated through past experiences of sexual victimization.

"When It Deviates It Becomes Harassment, Doesn't It?" A Qualitative Study on the Definition of Sexting According to Adolescents and Young Adults, Parents, and Teachers.

Arch Sex Behav 2019 Apr 8. Epub 2019 Apr 8.

Research Group on Adolescent Health, Institute of Social and Preventive Medicine, Lausanne University Hospital, Route de la Corniche 10, 1010, Lausanne, Switzerland.

Sexting was originally made public by dramatic consequences involving youths with contents that were disseminated and then used as a base for harassment. Despite a growing public and research interest, there is no consensus regarding its definition and measurements. As part of a larger qualitative study on sexting, we aimed to gather and compare opinions and perceptions of 32 youths (16-21 years) and 29 adults (11 parents and 18 teachers) on how sexting can be defined.

Department of Child and Family Studies, College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences, The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, TN, USA.

According to the possible selves theory, individuals have possible selves that they hope to attain, or feared selves they hope to avoid, in the proximal future. In addition, individuals may have strategies they use to help them attain these possible selves or avoid their feared selves. Recent work has applied this theory to the realm of sexuality (i.

Do Male Couples Agree on Their Sexual Agreements? An Analysis of Dyadic Data.

Arch Sex Behav 2019 May 20;48(4):1203-1216. Epub 2019 Mar 20.

Center for Sexuality and Health Disparities, University of Michigan, 400 N Ingalls St., Ann Arbor, MI, 48109, USA.

Male couples often formulate sexual agreements, but little is known about the extent to which partners concur about their exact terms. Disagreements, particularly with respect to sex outside the relationship, may induce stress and potentially increase the risk of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections. Our study sought to describe concordance between male partners on several aspects of their sexual agreements, overall, as well as stratified by dyadic HIV serostatus and relationship duration.

Love with HIV: A Latent Class Analysis of Sexual and Intimate Relationship Experiences Among Women Living with HIV in Canada.

Arch Sex Behav 2019 May 19;48(4):1015-1040. Epub 2019 Mar 19.

Faculty of Health Sciences, Simon Fraser University, Blusson Hall Room 10522, 8888 University Drive, Burnaby, BC, V5A 1S6, Canada.

Love remains hidden in HIV research in favor of a focus on risk. Among 1424 women living with HIV in Canada, we explored (1) whether eight facets of sex and intimacy (marital status, sexual activity, physical intimacy, emotional closeness, power equity, sexual exclusivity, relationship duration, and couple HIV serostatus) may coalesce into distinct relationship types, and (2) how these relationship types may be linked to love as well as various social, psychological, and structural factors. Five latent classes were identified: no relationship (46. Read More

"The Idea of Categorizing Makes Me Feel Uncomfortable": University Student Perspectives on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Labeling in the Healthcare Setting.

Arch Sex Behav 2019 Mar 8. Epub 2019 Mar 8.

Department of Family Medicine and Community Health, University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine, PPMC Andrew Mutch Building, Floor 7, 51 N. 39th Street, Philadelphia, PA, 19104, USA.

As healthcare settings are increasingly adding sexual orientation and gender identity (SO/GI) to routinely collected patient demographic information, it is important to understand how patients conceptualize and label these identities. This study explored university students' perspectives on and experiences with choosing SO/GI labels in the healthcare setting. We employed a mixed-method approach, collecting survey data on self-identified SO/GI labels across various contexts and conducting focus groups centered around experiences of SO/GI data collection and labeling in healthcare.

The authors would like to issue a correction for a statement made in the conclusion section of the paper entitled "Temporal stability of sexual excitation and sexual inhibition in women". As one might expect and as rightly stated throughout the paper, our study suggests that improvements in sexual function might increase sexual excitation and decrease sexual inhibition in women, not the other way around.

A Retrospective Review of Medical Records of Laboratory-Tested Sexually Transmitted Infections of Transsexual Men from Southern Brazil.

Department of Psychiatry, Hospital de Clínicas de Porto Alegre and Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, Porto Alegre, RS, CEP 90035-903, Brazil.

The present study assessed the prevalence of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in 90 transsexual men (female-to-male transsexual persons) from southern Brazil. A retrospective review of the medical records of all transsexual men who visited an outpatient clinic in Rio Grande do Sul from 1998 to 2017 was performed. Although the sample had a high prevalence of risk factors for contracting STIs, such as drug use, one-third of the participants had never been tested for STIs and, when screened, it was mostly for HIV, but not for syphilis or other STIs.

A recurring problem with the study of sexual fantasy is that of social desirability bias. Study participants may report fantasies that are consistent with general societal expectations of fantasy content, as opposed to themes characterized by their actual fantasies. The wide availability of erotic material on the Internet, however, facilitates the study of sexual fantasy narratives as they are anonymously expressed and viewed online. Read More

The Influence of Parent and Parent-Adolescent Relationship Characteristics on Sexual Trajectories into Adulthood.

Faculty of Leadership, Counseling and Research, School of Education, Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, VA, USA.

To examine sexual partner acquisition into young adulthood and to explore what characteristics of the adolescent family context might predict this change, we used growth curve modeling to examine data from a nationally representative sample of adolescents followed longitudinally over 13 years through young adulthood (N = 5385). Growth curve modeling allowed us to treat the outcome as a dynamic variable and to examine 10 potential predictors of change while accounting for the nested nature of the data. Six family characteristics emerged as predictors of mean number of partners and rate of partner acquisition, while accounting for three significant adolescent predictors. Read More

Department of Psychiatry, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK.

The objective of this cross-sectional study was to evaluate the frequency, impact, and management of sexual dysfunction associated with commonly prescribed antidepressants available in psychiatry outpatient clinics in Spain. We recruited 2163 adult patients who had undergone treatment with antidepressants for at least 8 weeks and had a history of normal sexual functioning before the prescription of the antidepressant, except for mildly impaired libido. We used the Psychotropic-Related Sexual Dysfunction Questionnaire (PRSexDQ-SALSEX) for evaluating the frequency and tolerance of sexual dysfunction and whether this side effect was spontaneously reported.

Hypersexual behavior is a construct that is well recognized yet vaguely conceptualized, leading to some arguments that it may be comprised of multiple etiologies. Childhood sexual abuse is often acknowledged as a common experience among those with sexually addictive behaviors, yet the intersection between PTSD and sexual addiction has not been fully explored. This case illustrates the use of Cognitive Processing Therapy, an empirically supported treatment for PTSD, as a means to treat both PTSD symptoms and hypersexual behaviors in a veteran who had experienced military sexual trauma.

Temporal Stability of Sexual Excitation and Sexual Inhibition in Women.

Arch Sex Behav 2019 Apr 15;48(3):881-889. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy, Mental Health Research and Treatment Center, Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Massenbergstr. 9-13, 44787, Bochum, Germany.

The dual control model of sexual response proposes two factors, sexual excitation (SE) and sexual inhibition (SI), that aim to predict sexual behavior and response. While SE and SI are described as stable traits that influence sexuality-related outcomes such as sexual function or sexual risk taking, only a few studies have presented data on the stability of these factors. The aim of this study was to evaluate the temporal stability of SE and SI, and to investigate whether changes in sexual function or partnership status influence SE and SI in a longitudinal sample of women.

A Longitudinal Examination of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Symptoms and Risky Sexual Behavior: Evaluating Emotion Dysregulation Dimensions as Mediators.

Arch Sex Behav 2019 Apr 15;48(3):975-986. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

Department of Psychology, University of Toledo, Mail Stop 948, 2801 West Bancroft Street, Toledo, OH, 43606, USA.

Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) has been linked to a wide array of risky and health-compromising behaviors, including risky sexual behavior (RSB). Cross-sectional studies reveal positive associations between emotion dysregulation and both PTSD and RSB. This study extended that work by exploring whether intermediate levels of emotion dysregulation across multiple dimensions account for the relation between baseline PTSD symptoms and RSB (i.

Correlates of Sexually Transmitted Infections Among South African Women Using Individual- and Community-Level Factors: Results from Generalized Additive Mixed Models.

Arch Sex Behav 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Biostatistics Unit, South African Medical Research Council, Durban, Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa.

South Africa has the highest burden of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infections in the world. There is also growing evidence that an individual's risk of contracting HIV is increased by the presence of other sexually transmitted infections (STIs). The primary objective of this study was to examine the association between the prevalence of STIs in a cohort of South African women who enrolled in HIV prevention trials (2002-2012). Read More

Daily Sexual Desire and Its Impact on Next-Day Desire and Behavior in Mixed Sex Couples.

Arch Sex Behav 2019 Apr 12;48(3):795-801. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

Department of Communication, University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY, USA.

Sexual desire contributes to overall sexual and relational health among long-term romantic partnerships. However, little research has examined the nuances of partner-level sexual desire and behavior on a daily level, despite evidence that it ebbs and flows and is more of a state than a static characteristic. Additionally, daily sexual behavior and desire may impact women differently than men. Read More

Changing Trends in Substance Use and Sexual Risk Disparities among Sexual Minority Women as a Function of Sexual Identity, Behavior, and Attraction: Findings from the National Survey of Family Growth, 2002-2015.

Arch Sex Behav 2019 May 12;48(4):1137-1158. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

CUNY Institute for Implementation Science in Population Health, City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy, New York, NY, USA.

Components of sexual minority (SM) status-including lesbian or bisexual identity, having same-sex partners, or same-sex attraction-individually predict substance use and sexual risk behavior disparities among women. Few studies have measured differing associations by sexual orientation components (identity, behavior, and attraction), particularly over time. Data were drawn from the 2002-2015 National Survey of Family Growth female sample (n = 31,222). Read More

Sexual Activity and Attitudes as Predictors of Sexual Satisfaction During Pregnancy: A Multi-Level Model Describing the Sexuality of Couples in the First 12 Weeks.

Arch Sex Behav 2019 Apr 5;48(3):843-854. Epub 2019 Feb 5.

School of Health and Kinesiology, University of Nebraska at Omaha, 6001 N Dodge Street, Omaha, NE, 68182, USA.

The sexual satisfaction of couples during pregnancy is an under-researched area of study. Several limitations exist within the current literature, including a lack of inquiry into attitudes about sex during pregnancy, analysis of the relationship between sexual satisfaction and sexual behaviors, and analysis of dyadic interactions within the couple. The purpose of the current study was to examine the relationships between attitudes toward having sex during pregnancy, various sexual behaviors, and sexual satisfaction among expectant couples via multilevel structural equation modeling.
