Abstract:
Childhood sexual abuse of adult men has brought many adulthood clinical manifestations and issues, with several of them being tied to male sexuality. Two groups (N = 11) of adult men, heterosexual (N = 9) and homosexual (N = 2), were compared to each other across several variables, noting any differences or similarities. The Kinsey Heterosexual - Homosexual scale, the Bem Sex-Role Inventory, and a sexual abuse questionnaire were used to obtain information about the sexual orientation, present sex role identities, and past abuse experiences. The descriptive results suggested several trends indicating differences between sex role identification when compared to the average severity of sexual abuse factors experienced. Also, significant differences were found when t-tests and a one way A-NOVA were performed to compare the groups, sex roles, and Bem A and Bem B and Bem Differences. Recommendations for future research are outlined.
