The sexual inhibition (SIS) and sexual excitation (SES) scales: I. Measuring sexual inhibition and excitation proneness in men
The development and initial validation of a questionnaire measuring the propensity for sexual inhibition and excitation in men: the Sexual Inhibition & Sexual Excitation Scales (SIS/SES), and their discriminant and convergent validity and test‐retest reliability are described. Expand
Automatic processes and the appraisal of sexual stimuli: Toward an information processing model of sexual arousal
A model of sexual arousal is presented that highlights the interaction between automatic and controlled cognitive processes and proposes that different levels of cognitive processing canExpand
The dual control model of male sexual response: a theoretical approach to centrally mediated erectile dysfunction
A theoretical model of dual control of male sexual response is considered, based on the balancing of central excitation and inhibition, with individuals varying in their propensity for both sexualExpand
The Dual Control Model: Current Status and Future Directions
The Dual Control Model proposes that sexual responses involve an interaction between sexual excitatory and sexual inhibitory processes, and that individuals vary in their propensity for both sexual excitation and sexual inhibition, which helps to understand much of the variability in human sexuality.

Sexual activity and risk taking in young heterosexual men: The relevance of sexual arousability, mood, and sensation seeking
Individual differences in sexual excitation and inhibition proneness and the relation between mood and sexuality are clearly relevant to high‐risk sexual behavior and should be taken into consideration when designing behavioral interventions. Expand
Sexual Risk-Taking in Gay Men: The Relevance of Sexual Arousability, Mood, and Sensation Seeking
Three aspects of personality are of potential relevance to designing better interventions to reduce high risk sexual behavior and in evaluating their effectiveness, including the relation between negative mood and sexuality. Expand
The sexual inhibition (SIS) and sexual excitation (SES) scales: II. Predicting psychophysiological response patterns
This study evaluated the predictive value of a newly developed measure of the propensity for sexual inhibition and excitation; the Sexual Inhibition & Sexual Excitation Scales (SIS/SES). Sexual,Expand
Selecting Films for Sex Research: Gender Differences in Erotic Film Preference
The aim of this study was to explore gender differences in sexual responsiveness to erotic films that had been selected for their differential appeal for men and women. A secondary objective was toExpand
Infidelity in Heterosexual Couples: Demographic, Interpersonal, and Personality-Related Predictors of Extradyadic Sex
For both men and women, sexual personality characteristics and, for women, relationship factors are more relevant to the prediction of sexual infidelity than demographic variables such as marital status and religiosity. Expand
Ambivalent Affect and Sexual Response: The Impact of Co-Occurring Positive and Negative Emotions on Subjective and Physiological Sexual Responses to Erotic Stimuli
Results showed that positive affect was strongly and positively related to subjective sexual response, and although negative affect was generally a poor predictor of subjective sexual arousal, for women, it was positively associated with genital response in some conditions. Expand
