Abstract

The authors examined self-conscious emotions as predictors of hypersexual behavior among 235 college students. Among men, shame-proneness and externalization predicted higher hypersexual behavior, whereas guilt-proneness and detachment were associated with lower hypersexual behavior. Detachment predicted higher hypersexual behavior among women.
