Sex Differences in Response to Visual Sexual Stimuli: A ReviewUploader: Aralabar 4 years ago Subscribe 10
In this study, heterosexual and homosexual males and females passively viewed photographs of sexually aroused genitals without any other peripheral body parts or context. In both sexes, four different nerve systems connect the genitals to the brain, which, with a stimulation surge, shoot excitatory signals to the brain upon reaching orgasm. The literature reviewed above provides evidence that there are sex differences in response to visual sexual stimuli. The presence of contextual elements in visual sexual stimuli may even allow lead to heightened arousal in women, as supported by the fact that women reported more subjective erotic reactions to commercial movies that men did. We hypothesize that men and women may differ in what types of sexual stimuli initiate sexual motivation and arousal.
