Participants chose between course credits and a small monetary compensation of 10 Euro. The excerpts 25 s were selected to differ in their capacity to induce felt arousal low vs.

Open in a separate window Note. The first of the two 7-point rating scales then appeared on the screen and participants gave their rating by mouse click without any time constraints.

Participants were instructed to give spontaneous ratings. Marin and Leder [ 25 ] showed that compression rate of music files is a significant predictor of subjective complexity.

Their findings provide food for thought for educators whose focus is to promote healthy sexual development.

Sexuality in popular music

After the experiment, participants filled in a self-developed short questionnaire. Women also provided detailed information about their menstrual cycle. Contrast 3 compared the two pleasant with the two unpleasant music conditions. Researchers Cougar Hall, Joshua H. Prior to the experiment, participants completed a short demographic questionnaire and version A of the three-dimensional mood questionnaire MDBF A by Steyer et al. To test whether music affected ratings of facial attractiveness in the two groups of women Fig 1A , a mixed-design ANOVA with condition as a within-subject factor control and 4 music conditions and cycle phase fertile vs. Participants were paid or assigned course credit , debriefed and thanked. Cougar Hall, Joshua H. A set of four orthogonal contrasts within the framework of mixed-design analysis of variance ANOVA was used to test our hypotheses regarding ratings of facial attractiveness and dating desirability, respectively. Previous research has indicated that there is a strong link between exposure to sexual media on screen and in music and sexual activity. Participants performed one practice trial in each block to familiarize themselves with the procedure. The set of male photographs comprised the following images: 3, 4, 35, 40, 52, 55, 57, 66, 71, 77, 79, 94, 95, , , , , , , and Marin and Leder [ 25 ] showed that compression rate of music files is a significant predictor of subjective complexity.

They found that male and non-White artists were more likely to write songs with sexual lyrics in the past two decades and that there were more sexual references overall in than in In the case of violations of sphericity, Greenhouse-Geisser corrections were performed.

The authors advise that their findings raise serious concerns related to the promotion of unhealthy sexual messages in music.

After the experiment, participants filled in a self-developed short questionnaire. Teens tend to overestimate the sexual activity of their peers and one source of this misperception is the entertainment media.

Impact of music on society

Given that we applied several exclusion criteria, such as no hormonal contraceptive use and less than three years of musical training, it was not possible to recruit such a large sample among university students. Marin and Leder [ 25 ] showed that compression rate of music files is a significant predictor of subjective complexity. A set of four orthogonal contrasts within the framework of mixed-design analysis of variance ANOVA was used to test our hypotheses regarding ratings of facial attractiveness and dating desirability, respectively. Since it cannot be ruled out that the current background variables contribute cumulatively to ratings of sexual attraction in each group, we decided to keep average values of these variables similar across the three groups to make the groups more comparable. Researchers Cougar Hall, Joshua H. Participants performed one practice trial in each block to familiarize themselves with the procedure. Their findings provide food for thought for educators whose focus is to promote healthy sexual development. All ratings were given on 7-point scales. Effects of music on ratings of sexual attraction The musical priming paradigm interspersed the trials of interest with distractor trials. The authors point out that not all sexual references are equal, and degrading and sexualized music can have a deleterious effect on teens. Hypothesis 5 referred to the group difference between women in the fertile and infertile phase, and a power analysis with the same settings as above yielded a minimum total sample size of participants. Eighty excerpts of 19th-century piano solo music were chosen from the stimulus set described in Marin and Leder [ 25 ]. The musical primes were not rated for their affective content in order to avoid demand characteristics and due to constraints regarding the acceptable length of the study. Contrast 4 tested the interaction between arousal and pleasantness in the music conditions.
