dc.description.abstract This paper will be an investigation into some aspects of the use of fantasy by males of two distinct and separate populations and consideration of the differences as well as the commonalities therein. A basic assumption made here is that probably all men fantasize to some extent during sexual experiences but that some differences of style, content, and use may appear across socio-economic lines.In an effort to explore the nature of sexual fantasy within these populations, it is hoped that a basis may be found for some beginning assumptions about the use of male sexual fantasy and its character and its potential as a tool for use in therapy.The implications for use of fantasy experiences in marital therapy seem to be numerous. If there are style, content, and use differences of significance in men's sexual fantasies, they then take on a highly personal flavor which seems to imply much about a man's ongoing cognitive processes and emotional state, and may reveal aspects of his originality, creativity, and intelligence.In this paper the discussion will be limited to examining some differences and similarities in subjectively reported male sexual fantasies and their uses, their content, and their style. It is hoped that this research may arrive at some tentative conclusions and/or observations of use tothose participating in sexual counseling and perhaps stimulate further research into the area. en_US
