Abstract [en]

The authors tested the hypothesis that experiencing sexual coercion and engaging in sexually coercive behavior are positivelyassociated in a representative sample totaling almost 4,000 Swedish or Norwegian male high school students (estimatedresponse rate 80%). In both surveys, youths who had experienced sexual coercion were approximately three times morelikely to engage in sexually coercive behavior than those without such experience (10%–12% vs. 4%). The association betweensexual coercion experience and sexually coercive behavior was attenuated but remained significant and moderately strong inboth surveys when controlling for nonsexual antisocial behavior, substance use, and noncoercive sexual behavior inmultivariate logistic regression models. The population attributable fraction (proportion of sexually coercive behavior that canbe explained by sexual coercion experience) was 18%–25%. The findings support a robust link between having been sexuallycoerced and engaging in coercive sexual behavior in the general population.
