Abstract

The present study examined the effects of sexual objectification of female artists in music videos onmale undergraduates' sexual beliefs. Findings showed that participants who viewed music videos of highly objectified female artists reported more adversarial sexual beliefs, more acceptance of interpersonal violence, and, at a level of marginal significance,more negative attitudes about sexual harassment than participants assigned to low-sexual objectifying music videos by the same female artists. Pathmodels indicated that adversarial sexual beliefs mediated the relationship between condition, and (1) acceptance of interpersonal violence and (2) negative attitudes regarding sexual harassment.
