Phallometric Nonresponding in Sexual Offenders

Phallometric Nonresponding in Sexual Offenders Factors related to phallometric nonresponding in sexual offenders were investigated. Scores on the Hare Psychopathy Checklist—Revised, the Crowne–Marlowe Social Desirability Scale, the Balanced Inventory of Desirable Responding, and the Multi-Phasic Sex Inventory were used as measures of psychological factors which may influence the level of responding obtained during presentations of audio and visual sexual stimuli. Phallometric measures employed were age/gender and female violence assessments. Significant differences were obtained between responders and nonresponders on several measures. Specifically, low responders to the female violence assessment had significantly higher scores on the Crowne–Marlowe Social Desirability Scale and the Impression Management subscale of the Balanced Inventory of Desirable Responding scale. Of special interest was the finding that approximately 75% of the participants failed to respond above 20% of full erection to either of the assessment methods. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Sexual Abuse: A Journal of Research and Treatment Springer Journals

Abstract

Factors related to phallometric nonresponding in sexual offenders were investigated. Scores on the Hare Psychopathy Checklist—Revised, the Crowne–Marlowe Social Desirability Scale, the Balanced Inventory of Desirable Responding, and the Multi-Phasic Sex Inventory were used as measures of psychological factors which may influence the level of responding obtained during presentations of audio and visual sexual stimuli. Phallometric measures employed were age/gender and female violence assessments. Significant differences were obtained between responders and nonresponders on several measures. Specifically, low responders to the female violence assessment had significantly higher scores on the Crowne–Marlowe Social Desirability Scale and the Impression Management subscale of the Balanced Inventory of Desirable Responding scale. Of special interest was the finding that approximately 75% of the participants failed to respond above 20% of full erection to either of the assessment methods.
