We found these data to contradict the common belief that female sexual perpetration is rare.
We therefore reviewed the broader literature to identify patterns and provide context, including among high-risk populations such as college students and inmates.
Sexual violence has been increasingly recognized as a social, rather than strictly individual or family, problem.
UPDATE: Von feministischer Seite wurde und wird immer wieder eingewendet, dass die hier aufgeführten Studien keinerlei wissenschaftliche Relevanz hätten.
Nachstehend möchte ich den H-Index und das SJR-Ranking (2016) für die wichtigsten, hier angeführten Fachzeitschriften angeben.
Based on 17 samples from 12 countries, the current meta-analysis found that a small proportion of sexual offenses reported to police are committed by females (fixed-effect meta-analytical average = 2.2%).
In contrast, victimization surveys indicated prevalence rates of female sexual offenders that were six times higher than official data (fixed-effect meta-analytical average = 11.6%).
We assessed the following sexuality variables: content of positive sexual cognitions (PSCs)/negative sexual cognitions (i.e., intimate, exploratory, dominance/ submission or impersonal), dyadic and solitary sexual desire, propensity for sexual excitation (SE)/sexual inhibition and sexual victimisation during childhood and/or adolescence/adulthood.
We examined a community sample of 228 men and 333 women, of whom 67 men and 43 women had perpetrated sexual aggression.
Regression analyses revealed that the most relevant variable in the prediction of sexual aggression was sexual victimisation during adolescence/adulthood in both sexes.
Differences between male and female sexual aggressors are discussed.
Highlights • Despite positive changes to UK law, other Westernized nations have more thorough gender-neutral legislation.
