Together, these results suggest that people rely on perceptions of characteristics relevant to stereotypical male–female gender roles and heterosexual relationships to accurately infer sexual roles in same-sex relationships.
A 2001 study of high school students conducted by Harvard University found that one in five teenage girls had been physically or sexually abused by a dating partner.
Research shows that teen girls are not as likely to be as abusive as teen boys.
Teen boys are far more likely to initiate violence and teen girls are more likely to be violent in a case of self-defense.
Teen dating violence can be very dangerous - sometimes lethal.
NCBI ROFL: Women’s gaydar improves during ovulation.
Do lesbians have better gaydar than straight women? , formerly known as NCBI ROFL, is the brainchild of two prone-to-distraction biologists.The authors conclude with this tantalizing suggestion: “it is possible that similar effects may be found in opposite-sex relationships: women may be able to identify submissive versus dominant men from brief observations of appearance or behavior.” Accurate Identification of a Preference for Insertive Versus Receptive Intercourse from Static Facial Cues of Gay Men “In intercourse between men, one of the partners typically assumes the role of an insertive partner (top) while the other assumes a receptive role (bottom).Although some research suggests that the perceptions of potential partners’ sexual roles in gay men’s relationships can affect whether a man will adopt the role of top or bottom during sexual intercourse, it remains unclear whether sexual roles could be perceived accurately by naïve observers.In Study 1, we found that naïve observers were able to discern men’s sexual roles from photos of their faces with accuracy that was significantly greater than chance guessing.Moreover, in Study 2, we determined that the relationship between men’s perceived and actual sexual roles was mediated by perceived masculinity.If you’re a gay man in the market for a hookup, date, or a relationship, the fastest way to find what you’re looking for is by going to a website custom-made just for you.
