Sexual violence is a problem that goes through years of construction of a macho and patriarchal society, where women live with the fear of being violated at all times. In view of this, it is inferred that even without ever having suffered any kind of violence of this nature, women modify their behavior in order to avoid experiencing it someday. Thus, this study aimed to explore the cultural practices involved in sexual violence from a behavior analytic approach, to contextualize the construction of gender roles and their implication for this practice, to understand the role of the verbal community in reinforcing this type of violence, and also to investigate the control of this practice over women's behavior. In view of this, a survey directed only to women was carried out, in which an online questionnaire was applied to 187 participants, with questions related to perceived changes in their own behavior. The research was based on a quali-quantitative analysis, using descriptive statistics, in which the main implications of the constant threat of sexual violence present in the social environment in women's behavior was presented. It was also discussed through behavior analysis the possible factors involved in this cultural practice. Finally, from the results obtained it was possible to identify several behaviors that women model throughout their lives in order to avoid suffering violence of a sexual nature.
