The present study aimed to investigate slut shaming perceptions and experiences of college students; specifically, how gender can influences the way college students view those labeled as “sluts” through interpersonal contact, within text messages, and/or online. Gender differences were also explored in in the context of witnessing another person treated in a degrading manner, made fun of, and/or socially alienated based on perceived sexual activity.
