The current study examines the influence of gender and ethnicity on various levels of sexual coercion among heterosexual partners. The Revised Conflicts Tactics Scale (Straus, Hamby, Boney-McCoy & Sugarman, 1996) was distributed to 452 southern California college students. ANOVA tests revealed a strong effect for gender. Males are more likely than females to report experiencing sexual coercion at mild, moderate and severe levels. The effect for ethnicity was minor.
