Sexual and emotional promiscuity are current areas of interest among psychology that are not typically talked about. However, the issue of women's sexuality and the platform we talk about this on is ever-growing. The aim of this research was to investigate the potential differences in sexual and emotional promiscuity in individuals who have been negatively sexually labelled, versus those who have not. The secondary aim of this research was to replicate findings from past research which investigated the relationship between sexual promiscuity, and emotional promiscuity. The experiment involved participants taking part in an online anonymous questionnaire which measured different aspects of sociosexuality, emotional promiscuity, and a degree of negative sexual labelling. The data was analysed using non-parametric testing of Mann Whitney U tests, and Pearson correlational analyses. The results from the experiment found significant differences n the responses from participants who were victims of negative sexual labelling, versus those who were not, where typically individuals who had been negatively labelled presented higher scores on the revised Sociosexual Orientation Inventory (SOI-R), and the Emotional Promiscuity (EP) scale.
