ABSTRACT
Abstract: The purpose of the study was to determine whether a sexual "double standard" existed for casual heterosexual behavior (hooking-up) and condom provision. Participants (n=500 college students) completed a questionnaire that included one of six vignettes (three vignette types, male or female model). Participants evaluated statements, comprising three scales, about the model depicted in the vignette. Data were analyzed using SAS programs. Male participants showed significant model gender x vignette interaction for all three scales (likeability, positive character, negative behavior). Results for female participants showed no interaction effects. Thus, a sexual double standard was found among male, but not female, participants.
