Gender Differences in Sexting Coercion as a Component of Polyvictimization
Midwestern Psychological Association
We investigated sexting coercion (i.e., being coerced to send sexually-explicit text or picture messages) as a component of intimate partner abuse (IPA) polyvictimization. Although interesting gender differences emerged, data suggest the presence of sexting coercion is associated with more negative effects than traditional forms of IPA occurring alone.
