Human sexual behaviour
I have reached abstracts of presentations from a special conference on animal and man behaviour. Some studies dealt with the sexuality of human beings. There is nothing about paedophilia only about other paraphilias and detailes on ordinary sexual behaviour. I will publish, step by step, abstracts of some of the studies reworded to understandable popular form.
The topic of the first study is
and dominance-submissivity in behaviour
(Hladký T. et al., Charles University)
This analysis is based on data collected on web page focused on BDSM (bondage discipline sadism masochism). This is, of course, not a representative population sample. There is a selection of people that like SM, from either of the attitudes. Positive feature is a large number of users, including hetero-, homo- and bisexuals. And the data analysis says the following conclusions about the relationship of dominance vs. submissivity to the orientation (hetero-, bi-, homosexuals):
Men: In heterosexual men paraphilic as BDSM, self-declared dominance was more common than submissivity (1277:803 men), while it was opposite in homosexual men (33:104). Even more submissive were bisexual men (76:331). This results support common sterotype about a normal man being a macho that beats his own wife, while gay is a pink boy with desire for true man.
Women: Heterosexual women were mostly submissive (44:270), homosexual women were very rare in the data (6:9). There were slightly more dominant bisexual women but still far from half of the sample (76:155). It seems that many women are satisfied with the role of a good housewife or a defenceless pussycat. Dominas are slightly more common in bisexual oriented women.
The ratio of homo- and heterosexual men within the users shows that BDSM is favourite not only in gays, but also in "normal" men.
Because the self-percieved dominance was scored on a multiple level scale, the researchers could show that dominant women are more strongly dominant than dominant men. If it appears at all, then it is pronounced! And also submissive men were more strongly submissive than submissive women. Good boys.
