01) Filip30: new results from Kinsey-study about child-adult-sex…

“Good news! The most important scientific magazine about sexuality has published a new article by Bruce Rind:

Rind, Bruce (2016): Reactions to First Postpubertal Female Same-Sex Sexual Experience in the Kinsey Sample: A Comparison of Minors with Peers, Minors with Adults, and Adults with Adults. Archives of Sexual Behavior, published online October 25th 2016

Bruce Rind writes about his study:

“This study examined reactions to first postpubertal same-sex sexual experience in the Kinsey female same-sex sample (consisting of females with extensive postpubertal same-sex experience) as a function of participant and partner ages. (…) Data were collected by Kinsey interviewers between 1939 and 1961 (M year=1947). Girls under 18 (M age=14.9), whose sexual experience was with a woman (M age=26.3), reacted positively just as often as girls under 18 (M age=14.1) with peers (Mage=15.0) and women (Mage=22.7)with women (Mage=26.3). The positive-reaction rates were, respectively, 85, 82, and 79 %. In a finer-graded analysis, younger adolescent girls (B14) (Mage=12.8) with women (Mage=27.4) had a high positive reaction rate (91%), a rate reached by no other group. For women (M age=22.2) with same-aged peers (M age=22.3), this rate was 86%.Girls with peers or women had no emotionally negative reactions (e.g., fear, disgust, shame, regret);women with women rarely did. Results contradicted prevailing clinical, legal, and lay beliefs that minor–adult sex is inherently traumatic and would be distinguished as such compared to age-concordant sex.”

It is very interesting to see that once again older minors did NOT like sex with adults more than younger minors. This is the same result as in several other studies. Here comes the new result in this issue:

“Minors´ positive reaction (enjoyed “much”) to first postpubertal same-sex sexual experience as a function of age at experience, in original Kinsey female same-sex sample”:

Minor less or equal 11 years old + adult: 100 % (n=1)
Minor 12 years old + adult: 100 % (n=1)
Minor 13 years old + adult: 100 % (n=5)
Minor 14 years old + adult: 75 % (n=4)
Minor 15 years old + adult: 100 % (n=2)
Minor 16 years old + adult: 67 % (n=3)
Minor 17 years old + adult: 80 % (n=10)

“Rates of positive and negative reactions to first postpubertal same-sex sexual experience, in Kinsey female same-sex sample, by five finergraded participant-partner age groups”:

Minor + peer – Enoyed “much” – 82 % (N=78)
Minor less equal 14 + adult – 91 % (N=11)
Minor (15-17) + adult – 80 % (N=58)
Adult + peer adult – 86 % (N=58)
Adult + older adult – 63 % (N=30)
Total 81 % (N=192)

Correction:

Sorry, in one sentence not 58 but 15 girls were involved:

wrong: “Minor (15-17) + adult – 80 % (N=58)”

right: “Minor (15-17) + adult – 80 % (N=15)”
