Abstract

People experience and express themselves through sexuality. There are many stereotypical differences when talking about the sexual behaviors and attitudes based on gender. I am interested in examining what factors explains why males and females tend to be more sexually active. I hypothesized that those with more education are having less sex than those with less education. Although education was not significant it was supported by females. I hypothesized that those who are non-married have more sex than those who are married. Marital Status was also not significant but was supported by males and females. I hypothesized that those who were pro premarital sex had more sex than those that oppose. Pro premarital sex was supported by males and females. I hypothesized that those who are generally happy will have more frequency of sex than those unhappy with life. Unhappiness was supported and significant for females, meaning happiness means more sex. I hypothesized that females who are feminist are less likely to be having sex. Feminist beliefs was supported by females, meaning less sex for them. These findings are consistent in showing that there is a double standard on sex frequency. Females continue to be more conventional than males in their attitudes towards sex.

I hypothesized that those who are non-married have more sex than those who are married. Marital Status was also not significant but was supported by males and females.
