The two norms are sexually promiscuous behavior - or the likelihood of being a playboy - and the desire for power over women, she explained.Bischmann and her colleagues surveyed 330 undergraduate men, age 17 to 54 years old, at a large Midwestern university.They found that men who wanted power over women and had a 'playboy attitude', were significantly more depressed than others.Those men were also less likely to seek mental health treatment.Participants were then asked to respond to a series of 46 questions designed to measure the two masculine norms.Among the group, the average age of first exposure was 13.37 years old.'That finding has sparked many more questions and potential research ideas because it was so unexpected based on what we know about gender role socialization and media exposure.'Bischmann said more research needs to be done, and explained that she suspects that the findings may be related to unexamined variables.
After a brief stint as a DJ, he released his first album Incognegro in 2000, followed by Back for the First Time also in 2000, which contained the singles "Southern Hospitality" and "What's Your Fantasy".
Boys who start watching pornography at a young age are more likely to grow into misogynistic men who want power over women, a new study claims.
Researchers at at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln found a clear link between the age at which a boy is first exposed to porn and his likelihood to display sexist attitudes later in life.
'We found that the younger a man was when he first viewed pornography, the more likely he was to want power over women,' Bischmann said.
'The older a man was when he first viewed pornography, the more likely he would want to engage in playboy behavior.'This finding was surprising, according to co-author Chrissy Richardson, MA, also from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, because the researchers had expected both norms to be higher with a lower first age of exposure.'The most interesting finding from this study was that older age at first exposure predicted greater adherence to the playboy masculine norms,' Richardson explained.
