Piropos, a form of stranger harassment typical in Spain, consist of appearance-related comments that unknown men direct at women in public spaces, such as on the street. There is some controversy within Spanish society as to whether piropos should be rejected or accepted––at least a certain type of them. In this research, we analyzed how young Span...

Previous research has shown that some appearance-focused situations lead to increased self-objectification, especially among women. The present research explored, with an experimental design, whether the simple fact of thinking about one's own physical appearance increases body shame through body surveillance and appearance-contingent self-worth in...
Article
Gelotophobia has been conceptualized as an individual difference variable concerned with the fear of being ridiculed by others' laughter. Individuals high in gelotophobia are more prone to anticipate and overreact to teasing interactions. It has been suggested that certain personal features susceptible to ridicule, such as physical appearance, coul...
Article
According to objectification theory, women’s habitual exposure to sexually objectifying situations can lead them to internalize a third-person perspective of themselves in physical terms, leading women to adopt an observer’s viewpoint of themselves as a body or collection of body parts that is valued principally for use or consumption by others (i....

Self-objectification happens when people internalize a view of themselves as an object or collection of body parts. Two studies were conducted to validate the Spanish version of the Objectified Body Consciousness Scale (OBCS). This scale assesses self-objectification through three components: body surveillance, body shame and appearance control bel...
