Abstract

Participants of this study read a half page vignette of a conversation (to be imagined between them and a sexual partner) pertaining to either an adrenaline producing activity, a sexual history overview or a bondage-discipline/dominance-submission/sadism-masochism (BDSM) negotiation; immediately following, participants viewed a self-progressed slide show of the seven culturally universal emotions (happiness, sadness, anger, disgust, fear, contempt and surprise) at a rate of .25 seconds each and judged which emotion they saw in which face. It was predicted that participants having read and imagined the BDSM negotiation would have better emotion detection scores than participants in either the sexual history or adrenaline activity discussion and that women would be best out of the BDSM participants, as compare to men.
