Abstract or Summary
  • Sociosexual Orientation (SSO) is a measure of individual differences in the willingness to engage in uncommitted sexual relations. This study explores the relationship between SSO and two preferences for hierarchy in society, including Social Dominance Orientation (SDO) and Social Values Orientation (SVO). All of these constructs share the common element of social exchange. Participants (n= 91) completed a series of scales measuring SSO, SDO, and SVO. Self-reported stress regulation was also assessed. Men demonstrated higher total scores and were more unrestricted overall. For women, the behavioral facet of SSO was positively associated with stress regulation and the attitudinal facet was negatively associated with SVO. For both men and women, unrestricted sociosexual desire was positively associated with SDO. This study also aims to provide a historical critique of contemporary sociosexuality literature.
