  1. "High positive correlations were found between the punishments for the following pairs of deviations: a) premarital indulgence by a man, and adultery with another man's wife; b) premarital indulgence by a man and adultery by a woman . . ." (139)Brown, Julia - A comparative study of deviations from sexual mores, 1952 - 3 Variables

    This article investigates which sexual behaviors are tabued (tabooed) and the frequency and severity of their punishments. Results indicate that incest, abduction, and rape are more frequently tabued, and that frequent tabuing is associated with more severe punishment. Human and supernatural agency in punishment is also examined.

  5. Arranged marriage will be positively associated with attitudes of acceptance towards rape. (3)Apostolou, Menelaos - Individual Mate Choice in an Arranged Marriage Context: Evidence from the St..., 2017 - 2 Variables

    The author performs tests of hypothesized relationships between arranged marriage and various forms of non-sanctioned mate choice. Overall, the author theorizes that where marriages are arranged, mate choice will be found in higher prevalence of premarital sex, extramarital sex, and rape. Most tests support these relationships in the hypothesized directions, suggesting that strict regulation of marriage provides parents with some, but far from complete control over the mate choice of their offspring.

  6. Greater punishment of rape will be negatively associated with the frequency of rape (432).Otterbein, Keith F. - A cross-cultural study of rape, 1979 - 2 Variables

    This study examines two theories concerning the prevalence of rape: deterrence theory and fraternal interest group theory. Results indicate that both punishment and fraternal interest groups influence the frequency of rape, though neither variable is a necessary cause. The effects of marital residence and polygyny are also considered.

  9. "Personnel of inchoate incorporative states adopt more restrictive controls over sexual behavior than do those of any other sociopolitical systems. They adopt laws imposing capital punishment for adultery, incest, and the violation of celibacy" (662)Cohen, Yehudi A. - Ends and means in political control: state organization and the punishment ..., 1969 - 5 Variables

    This study investigates political organization and the punishment of nonmarital sex. The author suggests that "the rules governing each type of nonmarital relationship are outgrowths of different relationships between controlling political bodies and local boundary systems."

Results indicate a significant relationship between these two variables.
