Abstract: Objectification theorists argue that repeated exposure to sexually objectifying media content will lead to higher levels of self-objectification, which negatively affect women’s well-being. Although consequences related to women’s sexual functioning and sexual agency are proposed, efforts to test these connections have been infrequent and inconsistent. We therefore used structural equation modeling to test connections between exposure to three media genres (women’s magazines, reality TV, and situation comedies), self-sexualization, and four dimensions of sexual agency among 754 undergraduate women. Findings confirmed our expectations. More frequent consumption of women’s magazines, lifestyle reality TV programs, and situation comedies each predicted greater self-sexualization, which in turn predicted greater use of alcohol to feel sexy, less condom use self-efficacy, and more negative sexual affect. Implications for objectification theories and for measures of women’s media use and sexual functioning are discussed.

Abstract: The terms MSM (men who have sex with men) and WSW (women who have sex with women) have been used with increasing frequency in the public health literature to examine STI risk. These categories, however, often obscure differences in STI risk by sexual identity. Using data from Wave IV of the National Longitudinal Survey of Adolescent Health, I examine the intersection between self -reported sexual identities and sexual relationship histories to examine how STI risk and self-reported STIs are differentially distributed across sexual minority populations. I find that while gay identified women are more likely to report several STI risk factors than straight identified women with opposite sex histories, they have a substantially lower STI risk. STI risk among women is concentrated among straight identified-WSMW and bisexual or mostly straight identified women. Among males, straight identified MSM are more likely to report several STI risk factors straight males with opposite-sex only histories but do not have a greater likelihood of reporting an STI diagnosis; rather, STI risk is concentrated among gay and bisexual identified MSM. These results provide compelling evidence that focusing solely on the behavioral elements of same-sex orientation obscures differential STI risk among MSM and WSW populations by sexual identity.

Abstract: Sexual self-esteem, parental sexual communication, and sexual media consumption were tested among college virgins (n=150) and non-virgins (n=150). The results indicated that having lower sexual self-esteem, higher levels of parental sexual communication and higher levels of sexual media consumption predicted virginity.
