AN EXPLORATORY ANALYSIS OF PRIVATE SEXUAL BEHAVIORS AMONG COLLEGE STUDENTS: SOME IMPLICATIONS FOR A THEORY OF CLASS DIFFERENCES IN SEXUAL BEHAVIOR
Abstract:The research reported is based on an analysis of anonymous questionnaire data received from 72 Ss who were students at a southern public university. Ss filled out questionnaires at their leisure and returned them in sealed envelopes. A wide range of sexual behaviors and fantasies were self-reported by Ss including oral-genital sex, genital sex, homosexuality, bondage, sadomasochism, partialism, incest, pederasty, oralism, scatological acts, number of sexual partners, and premarital intercourse. The resulting data were presented in tabular form and compared with earlier national data sets. It was also noted that often fairly strong measures of association emerged in a positive direction between socioeconomic status and participation in (and/or approval of) “deviant” sexual behaviors.
