[Continued from Part 01]
Sexual scripts are internalized cultural guidelines that influence how people interpret, understand, and behave in sexual contexts.
They are notably gendered: Men are expected to express masculinity through sexual assertiveness, control, high sexual desire, and a high number of sexual partners, while women are expected to display femininity through sexual restraint and limitations on sexual access (Gagnon & Simon, 1973; Weiderman, 2005).
Typically, sexual scripts have ignored the role of women’s pleasure, as women are portrayed as uninterested in sex (Wiederman, 2005).
