**Original citation.** Farris, C., Treat, T.A., Viken, R.J., & McFall, R.M. (2008). Perceptual mechanisms that characterize gender differences in decoding women's sexual intent. *Psychological Science, 19*(4), 348-354. **Target of replication.** The aim of the study is to test the reproducibility of the primary finding that males show less sensitivity in distinguishing between friendliness and sexual interest than women, F(1, 278) = 123.38, p <.001. **A priori replication criteria.** The main effect of interest is the comparison between positive effect sensitivity (i.e., the distinction between friendliness and sexual interest) in men and women. A successful replication would find that male participants are less sensitive to the distinction between friendliness and sexual interest than women, suggesting that gender differences are due to perceptual insensitivity in men. The original article reported estimates of two choice parameters, sensitivity and bias. As the aim of this study was to replicate the sensitivity finding, we will compute and analyze sensitivity estimates only.
