Sample text

Conceptualizing Sexual Scripts Sexual activity is not entirely improvised in the moment, contrary to most people’s perceptions. Thoughts and emotions occurring during sex reflect decades of various social inputs. As the British band Frankie Goes to Hollywood sang in their hit Relax, a song clearly about orgasm, “live those dreams, scheme those schemes … when you want to come” (Johnson, O’Toole, & constructivist theoretical underpinnings 25 Gill, 1984). Indeed, dreams and schemes are good lay terms for sexual scripts.

Lutzen (1995) suggests than silences often contain just as much—if not more—interpretive potential than explicit discourses about sex. For the reasons outlined above, framing is arguably a theoretical sibling of script theory, including sexual scripting. Connell and Dowsett (1999) offer a convincing argument that both Simon and Gagnon’s theory of socially constructed sexuality and Foucault’s theorizing on the cultural history of sexuality should fall under the broad umbrella of “social framing theories” (p.

150); and “normative cultural contexts that give sex its meaning” (Kimmel, 2007, p. xi). At the psychological (rather than social) level, a sexual script can also be viewed as a “knowledge representation” or “event schema” related to sexual behavior (Lenton & Bryan, 2005, p. 484). As indicated by the above definitions, sexual scripts are experienced and enacted by individuals, but they do not exist in a vacuum. Reiss argues that scripts develop within the framework of a sexual ideology, which is defined by: (a) gender equality (referring to the distribution of power between men and women within a society); (b) sexual equality (referring to the presence or absence of a double standard of sexual permissiveness for men and women); and (c) potential for addiction and fear associated with sexuality—referring to the presumed power of sex to ruin lives and lead people astray, as portrayed, for instance, in the British film Shame (Canning & McQueen, 2011).
