Abstract

Investigated the negative-association explanation of behaviorally specific decreases in postrape sexual satisfaction via retrospective ratings in 4 groups of women representing different degrees of sexual assault. Ss were 116 college women preselected on the basis of their scores on a women's sexual experiences survey. All groups of sexually victimized Ss except those who experienced pressure and/or coercion to engage in sexual intercourse were currently less sexually satisfied on all sexual behaviors than nonvictimized Ss. No behaviorally specific postassault decreases in sexual satisfaction emerged for any group of victimized Ss. Thus, support was not found for the negative-association hypothesis.
