  5. 5. Initial theories • Sigmund Freud is well-known for his theories in sexology. • One of the first theories Sigmund developed viewed women as men without penises (Cohler & Galatzer-Levy, 2008) • according to early Freudian theory, “since women don’t have a penis, however, they experience ‘penis envy’, which is the jealousy little girls feel towards boys and the resentment towards their mothers (whom they blame for not having a penis).” (Fraize N., Kerrigan L., McFatridge K., Nadifi A., n/a) • women engaged in sexual activities in order to birth to boys to “gain” a penis. In addition he believed women were sexually passive because they had underdeveloped superegos. This implies that women are morally inferior to men (Schultz & Schultz, 2009). • It is thoughts such as these that are assumed which result in grey areas when it comes to sex.

Participants The participants that took place in this research come from a diverse range of ethnic backgrounds who are sexually active and who were/are recently in a relationship There are a total of 52 participants that took part in this research.

Social networking site such as Facebook and Twitter were used to send out the survey
  7. 7. Ethical implications • This research was carried out over the internet through an online survey form. • Through the internet, participants remain completely anonymous therefore meeting any ethical requirements. • By doing a survey through the internet, participants are not obligated in any way to fill the survey if they are not comfortable to do so. • The researchers chose this mode to research to ensure the data retrieved is safe and password protected to ensure all information is kept in confidence and cannot be misplaced
  8. 8. Results • In this survey 82.69% of the people were between the ages of 18 to 20 • 27 males and 25 females • 2 homosexuals and 3 bisexuals • It is surprising to note that in this research, 44.23% are single. However 32.69% are single but cohabitation.

  13. 13. • 96% of women could not tell their partners that they are experiencing pain or discomfort while partaking in sexual activities. In comparison 36% of males could not tell their partners that they were experiencing pain or discomfort.
  14. 14. Over-justification • Lack of pleasure and satisfaction felt by a woman can be a result of the over-justification hypothesis. This hypothesis states that a persons’ intrinsic interest will decrease when an external reward is given to a person performing an intrinsically rewarding activity. • If a female was to respond to her partners sexual initiation and as a result she receives a reward such as her partner doing more chores. The actual enjoyment for the woman may decline during the sexual encounter will decline. The woman is now probably going to interpret her enjoyment as being primarily from the reward. (n/a, 2012)
  15. 15. • Given rules about dating from books websites and press has pressured people to conform to society. (Brown, Akingbade McDonnel, 2010) The media targets women more than men . • According to the research, most men are comfortable about their body are their partner as opposed to females. Self perception theory is associated with situations such as this. ‘Self-perception theory is based on the premise that people make attributions about their own attitudes, feelings and behaviors by relying on their observations of external behaviors and the circumstances in which those behaviors occur’ (Bem, 1965) (n/a, 2012)
