Approximately 62 per cent of a group of university Freshmen women reported experiencing offensive male sexual aggresion during the year prior to university entrance. Proneness to sexual aggression appears associated with a lack of parental sex guidance and the absence of older male siblings. Certain characteristics of the pair relationship also increase the probability of aggression. The adjustive reactions of the offended female are strongly influenced by prior parental guidance and the severity and provocation of the aggresive episode.
