CHANGING PATTERNS IN THE RESPONSE TO HUMOROUS SEXUAL STIMULI: SEX ROLES AND EXPRESSION OF SEXUALITY
Abstract:Considering the relaxation of sex role restraints and the convergence of male/female reactions to erotica, this study examined the impact of humorous sexual stimuli on adult males and females. Results showed the importance of personal sexual experience and enjoyment with sexual expression on the reactions to sexual humor. Sexist ideas within sexual humor was a significant factor in influencing female appreciation of sexual jokes. Yet some females, depending on life experiences, evidenced cross-sex attitudes in humor preferences.
