Because researchers have not been able to survey children about sexual abuse, not much is known about how subjective reactions are related to gender, age, age difference, and the social relationship between the offender and victim. Multivariate analyses adjusted for the use of coercion, the intimacy of the sexual experience, and other incident characteristics. It was hypothesized that, as a result of sex differences in sexuality and attitudes toward deviant behavior, girls are more sensitive than boys to age and age difference. Three findings supported the hypothesis: 1 girls were more likely than boys to have a negative reaction to sexual encounters regardless of the age difference; 2 for girls, age was negatively associated with the likelihood of a negative reaction, but age had no effect for boys; and 3 girls reacted negatively to age difference while boys did not.

Studies have found that women who are pregnant with girls may be significantly more likely to experience nausea and vomiting during pregnancy.
