본 연구는 대전, 세종, 충 남북 지역에 거주하는 배우자 없는 남성 286명을 조사대상자로 하여 그들의 표현적 성 대처행동이 성매매 태도에 미치는 영향을 조사하였고, 이 과정에서 범죄억제에 대한 인식 요인의 조절효과를 검증하였다. 본 연구의 자료분석을 위하여 PASW Statistics 18.0을 이용하였다. 주요 연구결과는 다음과 같다. 첫째, 조사대상자의 성매매에 대한 태도는 보통수준 이상으로 관대하게 인식하는 것으로 나타났다. 둘째, 성매매 태도는 조사대상자의 거주 지역, 교육수준, 건강상태, 근로활동 여부, 사회 참여 여부에 따라 집단별로 유의미한 차이가 나타났다. 셋째, 성매매 태도에 영향을 미치는 요인은 교육수준, 건강상태, 근로활동 여부, 사회 참여 여부, 표현적 성 대처행동, 범죄억제에서의 공식적 비공식적 억제 등으로 나타났다. 넷째, 범죄억제에서의 공식적 억제는 성 대처행동과 성매매 태도와의 관계에서 조절효과를 갖는 것으로 나타났다. 이러한 연구결과에 기초하여 무배우자 남성의 성매매를 억제할 수 있는 통합적이고 실질적인 방안을 제시하였다.
