Objectification in romantic relationships related to sexual pressure, coercion

21 agosto 2014

To sexually objectify a woman is to focus on her body in terms of how it can provide sexual pleasure rather than viewing her as a complete human being with thoughts and feelings. While objectification has long been considered a problem in the media, how does it affect individual romantic relationships? New research finds that more objectification of a female partner’s body is related to higher incidents of sexual pressure and coercion.
