Sexual static is a phenomenon that is generally perceived to be brought about by gender differences and result in various interferences in methods of communication and conveying messages. Because of sexual static, messages that are expressed between men and women seem difficult to understand. Contrary to how women attempt to minimize sexual static, men prefer to do away with it completely, which is why women are often excluded from participating in executive affairs. Because discomfort is not without a great deal of subjectivity, and because men have difficulty admitting such problems, sexual static becomes difficult to measure. This chapter addresses the need to explore sexual static and how men react to it, because such alarmingly initiates the underutilization of women. The chapter specifically explores the following sources of sexual static: role confusion, garbled communication, and culture clash.
