Visual attention to reproductively relevant stimuli the role of sex-linked biological and social factors by Nora Charles( file )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Research examining interest in stimuli associated with evolved reproductive motivations has demonstrated sex differences in preferences for potential mates and infants, as well as traits and states associated with increased attention to same-sex rivals. Manipulations of reproductive motivations (e.g., mate searching) have also been shown to affect visual attention to these types of stimuli. Most of this work has focused on physical attractiveness in adult targets, which evolutionary theories of mate preferences suggest is less important than social status for women's mate selection, and no research to date has measured patterns of visual attention to infants. Additionally, the stimuli used in past research tend to have low ecological validity and it is not known whether the preferences displayed generalize to the perception of more realistic stimuli. Finally, the potential effects of circulating testosterone on attention to reproductively relevant stimuli have been studied only in very limited ways in men. In the current project, participants self-reported personality traits and characteristics associated with relationships and sexuality, provided samples for analysis of circulating testosterone, were selected to undergo either a jealousy inducing or anxiety-inducing priming task, and were shown low and high ecological validity stimuli displaying reproductively relevant figures. Major findings include more similarity between the sexes than is usually assumed and weaker preferences for potential mates with high mate value in high ecological validity scenes than low ecological validity scenes. Suggestions for future research include applying the theory of strategic pluralism to within-person variability in attention to reproductively relevant stimuli
Hormonal influences on sex-linked sexual attitudes by Nora Charles( file )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Previous studies of non-human animals and humans with endocrine abnormalities have demonstrated that higher prenatal androgen levels promote more male-typical behavior, including cognitive abilities and sexual behavior. Research on normal hormonal fluctuations (e.g. menstrual cycle studies) has shown additional effects of circulating sex hormones in postnatal life on the expression of a number of sex-linked cognitive and sexual behaviors. This research was designed to replicate previously reported sex differences in a variety of domains and to extend prior findings of an association between low (male-typical) 2nd to 4th digit (2D:4D) ratio, enhanced (maletypical) mental rotation ability, and more liberal (male-typical) sexual attitudes and behavior in women. This is also the first study to examine the effects of hormonal factors and other sex-linked variables on sociosexuality in men. As part of this study, participants (n = 127) completed a battery of gender role measures, sex-linked cognitive tasks, and a sexual attitudes questionnaire. Prenatal androgen levels were indirectly measured by means of the index to ring finger (2D:4D) ratio, and testosterone and progesterone levels were obtained from saliva samples collected at each session from participants who were not using hormonal contraceptives. Results replicate previously reported sex differences in sexual attitudes, sex-linked behaviors and personality traits. More importantly, results provide the first evidence for both pre- and postnatal contributions to sexual attitudes. Men with lower (more male-typical) 2D:4D ratios reported less restricted (more male-typical) sexual attitudes, suggesting that prenatal hormone levels may influence sexual attitudes in adulthood, at least in men. Additionally, the tendency for women who were not using hormonal contraceptives to report less restricted sexual attitudes during the mid-luteal phase of their cycle than during the menstrual phase suggests that changes in circulating sex hormone levels in adulthood, such as those during the menstrual cycle, may influence sexual attitudes in women
