Abstract:This study examined the effects of a game-playing love style – ludus – (Hendrick & Hendrick, 1991) with sexual experience. In a sample of American college students (N=305) the study found that sexual experience was related to the ludus (game-playing) subscale. As the tendency to endorse items of the ludus scale increases, the individual reported an ever larger number of sexual partners. Neither the gender of the respondent nor the effect of being in a deepening interpersonal relationship mollifies the tendency to endorse the ludic items.
