Abstract

Using semantic differential ratings of evaluation, potency and activity of American and German undergraduates, I will test the general hypothesis that if both cultures agree on the sexual- erotic denotation of sentiments, sentiments will differ disproportional in their affective representations. It will be demonstrated that there is an interconnection of role-identities and emotions. Affective representation between sexual role- identities differs in German and American culture. Emotions associated with sexual-erotic role-identities have a deviant and violent quality for Americans. The same role-identities associate with emotions of impression and passion for German subjects.
