Previous studies have indicated a lower level of empathy among men who have been associated with sexual aggression toward women. A new study by Neil Malamuth of the UCLA has revealed that men who buy sex, or in other words- indulge in the act of prostitution, are more likely to report having committed rape and other aggressive sexual acts.

Malamuth said, "Our findings indicated that men who bought sex shared certain key characteristics with men who were at risk for committing sexual aggression. Both groups tended to have a preference for impersonal sex, a fear of rejection by women, a history of having committed sexually aggressive acts and a hostile masculine self-identification. Those who bought sex, on average, had less empathy for women in prostitution and view them as intrinsically different from other women. The study confirmed the predictive ability of many of the risk factors for sexual aggression he has studied for the past 35 years."
