Peterson, D. L., & Pfost, K. S. (1989). Influence of rock videos on attitudes of violence against women. Psychological Reports, 64 (1), 319-322.
Abstract: 144 male undergraduates viewed rock videos containing content that was erotic-violent, erotic-nonviolent, nonerotic-violent, or nonerotic-nonviolent. Ss then completed a scale measuring aggressive attitudes toward women, including (1) rape myth acceptance, (2) acceptance of interpersonal violence, (3) adversarial sexual beliefs, and (4) sex-role stereotypes. Exposure to nonerotic-violent videos resulted in significantly higher adversarial sexual beliefs scores and ratings of negative affect. Findings are discussed in relation to A. Bandura’s (1973, 1977) concept of emotional incompatibility and the frustration-aggression model. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved)
