ABSTRACT
Despite the fact that some individuals appraise their sexual cognitions negatively and or experience negative affect in association with their sexual fantasies, sexuality researchers have not differentiated between positively and negatively experienced sexual cognitions. The article investigates the frequency, diversity, and content of positive and negative sexual cognitions. Sexuality researchers have long been interested in sexual cognitions. In particular, sexual fantasy has received a considerable amount of research attention. Although research results have increased our understanding of sexual fantasy, much of the research in the area has suffered from methodological problems. It is agreed that irrespective of the variations in the manner in which sexual fantasy is conceptualized, the underlying assumption in most conceptual definitions is that sexual fantasies are enjoyable. It is found that a particular sexual cognition may be positive for one individual and negative for another individual. Although the contents of positive and negative sexual cognitions are not distinct, these two types of sexual cognitions differ in important ways.
