Abstract

Usually, people with ID (intellectual disability) have been deprived of the right to live in the community, receive an educat ion, work, marry, and procreate. The aim of this study was to investigate the attitudes of 122 university students towards the sexuality of men with ID. We hypothesized that Social Dominance Orientation (SDO) should hinder an open attitude towards the right to sexuality of men with ID.Results showed that attitudes are generally passably positive and that students high on SDO were more oriented to reject sexual rights for men with ID than students scoring lower on this factor.
