For as far as we can calculate—up to age thirty-five—100 per cent of the separated, divorced, and widowed aggressors had postmarital coitus. The frequency is also high—beginning in fourth place with frequencies (with companions) of about once a week, they rank first from age thirty-one to age thirty-five with a frequency of 1.75 per week. Not unnaturally this constituted the lion’s share of their total outlet—they rank first once and second twice up to age thirty-six, with from 70 to 88 per cent of their total orgasms derived from postmarital coitus with companions. Postmarital coitus with prostitutes is moderate to low in incidence, frequency, and proportion of total outlet.
The first coital partners of the aggressors vs. adults were concentrated in the age categories 14-15 and 16-17 with approximately equal numbers in each (29 and 30 per cent respectively). Relatively few had their initial coitus with females younger or older. This is what one would anticipate in a group in which large numbers of the members began coitus early in life.
Our impression that aggressors vs. adults are not particularly interested in young partners was borne out when we asked them what age they preferred their sexual partners to be. More than twice as many expressed a desire for women from thirty-five to forty-four as for girls aged sixteen to seventeen; 13 per cent, a moderate figure, chose the sixteen- to seventeen-year-olds. Only 3 per cent, a rather low number, had preferences that included girls under sixteen. As with all groups, the controls included, the majority of aggressors vs. adults preferred women between eighteen and thirty-four.
