Upcoming event

Dr Sarah Johns- The Dark Triad and Virtual Sexual Harassment

"The internet has enabled the exchange of graphic, sexual images and increased the potential for harassing and unwanted sexual interactions There is a fundamental lack of empirical research conducted on the motives for sending self taken sexual images a common form of online sexual harassment when such images are unsolicited The incentives for this behaviour are unknown, as well as the prevalence of the behaviour in general We created a predictive model for the sending of unsolicited nude images for both men and women, and in relation to dark triad personality traits Our results suggest that, for men, this behaviour is predicted by psychopathy, self rated mate value, and an accepting attitude towards sending nudes, whereas in women it is predicted by narcissism and a liberal attitude towards sending nudes We conclude that female senders can be characterised as sex positive individuals, and that male senders may have darker intentions and motives This has implications for how this behaviour is viewed in both legal and sexual health contexts"
