ABSTRACT
Sexual coercion in peer dating relationships was studied among 341 Year 11-12 high school students via the Adolescent Dating and Relationship Survey. Nearly 50% of females and 70% of males had relationships with similar aged partners. However, more females dated older partners and more males dated younger partners. Females also reported longer relationships than males (= 9-12 months). The most frequent coercions were made to feel guilty, being plied with alcohol and/or other drugs, being pressured via begging and/or arguing, and being lied to. Females were physically restrained more than males. Talking about the experience was a common response, and females said "Stop", "No Further", Pulled Away, or Left more than males. However, many participants reported Doing Nothing.
