Distress About Sex: A National Survey of Women in Heterosexual Relationships
In general, the predictors of distress about sex did not fit well with the DSM-IV criteria for the diagnosis of sexual dysfunction in women, and the conceptual issues involved in the use of terms such as “ sexual problem” and “sexual dysfunction” are discussed.
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.

Sexual addiction, sexual compulsivity, sexual impulsivity, or what? Toward a theoretical model
An alternative theoretical approach to investigating sexual addiction, sexual compulsivity, and sexual impulsivity mechanisms is proposed based on the dual control model and recent research on the relation between mood and sexuality.
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.

The traditional concept of 'hormone' continues to apply to the role of testosterone and oestradiol in sexual arousal, peptides present a more complex role, partly because of the multiple roles and sites of action of most peptides.
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.
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,
