Abstract: In these three studies I attempt to explore reasons behind the differences in receptivity of men and women to dating and sexual offers from perfect strangers and whether responses vary by gender. For Studies 1 and 2, I hypothesized that there would be (1) a main effect for type of request, (2) a main effect for gender, and (3) an interaction between Gender and Type of Request. For Study 3, I additionally hypothesized that responses for both men and women would decline the more sexually explicit the offer becomes and that there would no longer be an interaction effect. My main hypotheses were supported in Study 2, but not in Studies 1 and 3, however while I did not secure main effects I did find significant simple effects for Gender and Type of Request for both studies. The third hypothesis from Study 3 was also supported (p< .05).
