Abstract: 121 female undergraduates viewed a film per day for 4 days from 1 of 3 categories: (a) sexually explicit but nonviolent stimuli, (b) sexually explicit, sexually violent stimuli, and (c) mildly sexually explicit, graphically violent stimuli. Ss then served as jurors in a simulated rape trial. Exposure to both types of violent stimuli produced desensitization and ratings of the stimuli as less degrading to women. Women exposed to the mildly sexually explicit, graphically violent stimuli were less sensitive toward the victim in the rape trial than were Ss.
