introduction
Introduction
  • Research suggests that heterosexual dating scripts tend to be traditional
  • There are different sexual expectations depending on who initiates the date, pays, and where it was located
  • Sexual scripts provide a directive for sexual behavior; serve to offer a guide for expected, and stereotypical behavior
  • Men justify their reasons for pursuing sex on a first date

the hypotheses
The Hypotheses
  • Main and interaction effects existed for who asked, who paid, and where the date took place on sexual expectations, rape myth acceptance, adversarial sexual beliefs, and ambivalent sexism
  • Men hold significantly higher sexual expectations, rape myth acceptance, adversarial sexual beliefs, ambivalent sexism, and ambivalent sexism-hostile than women
  • Men initiate significantly more first dates than women

results
Results
  • All three hypotheses were supported

criticisms of the study
Criticisms of the Study
  • Demographic: All participants were undergraduate students, therefore there was a lack of age variation
  • Location: The participants all attended a university in the southwestern area of the United States, cultural differences may arise around the country
  • Presentation: The survey for the study was presented as an extra credit opportunity, only those interested in the extra points participated

interesting points
Interesting Points
  • Men and women are open to either gender initiating and paying for a date in theory, but in reality, the majority of men reported being the initiator
  • Despite our change in culture of being more accepting of women’s role in being educated and active in society, certain sexual expectations and attitudes continue to exist
  • The location of a date influences men’s sexual expectations
