Narcissism and Entitlement: Sexual Aggression and the College Male

Synopsis

Champion examines the premise that sexually aggressive men possess distinct, cognitively structured belief systems. To explore these belief systems he focuses on entitlement. Entitlement was measured through existing scales for Machiavellianism and narcissism. Sexual aggressors tend to be more narcissistic, Machiavellian and sexually experienced than other men. Contrary to popular notions and some past research, athletic and fraternity membership had no relationship with sexual aggression. Champion postulates that entitling personality structures are associated with sexual aggression and speculates on the implications of this for future criminological study.
