Cross-national variation in the size of sex differences in values: effects of gender equality.
Drawing on evolutionary and role theories, the authors postulate that women inherently value benevolence and universalism more than men do, whereas men inherently value power, achievement, and stimulation more than women do, and that as gender equality increases, sex differences in these values should increase, whereas sex Differences in other values should not be affected by increases in gender equality.

It is hypothesized that the sexual module responds differently in the presence of complex (high-order) contextual cues that are related to gender-dimorphic sexual strategies in males and females, making females’ sexual responses more prone to the impact of high-order cultural cues than males’Sexual responses.
