Agreement of Self-Reported and Genital Measures of Sexual Arousal in Men and Women: A Meta-Analysis
This meta-analysis reviews research to quantify the extent of agreement between self-reported and genital measures of sexual arousal, to determine if there is a gender difference in this agreement, and to identify theoretical and methodological moderators of subjective-genital agreement.
Gender and sexual orientation differences in sexual response to sexual activities versus gender of actors in sexual films.
In this study, the hypothesis that women's sexual orientation and sexual responses in the laboratory correlate less highly than do men's because women respond primarily to the sexual activities performed by actors, whereas men respond primary to the gender of the actors is investigated.
A Sex Difference in the Specificity of Sexual Arousal
The results for females are unlikely to be explained by ascertainment biases, and suggest that sexual arousal patterns play fundamentally different roles in male and female sexuality.
A sex difference in features that elicit genital response
A brief review and discussion of sex differences in the specificity of sexual arousal
Most traditional models of sexual response, sexual dysfunction, and sexual orientation are not sexspecific and, as such, may not adequately explain observed differences in male and female sexuality.
A Critical Review of Recent Biological Research on Human Sexual Orientation
A comprehensive review and critique of biological research on sexual orientation published over the last decade is provided, including measurement issues, cognitive, and psychophysiological issues, and lack of research on women.
Sex Differences in Patterns of Genital Sexual Arousal: Measurement Artifacts or True Phenomena?
The results from the current study support the continued use of vaginal photoplethysmography in investigating sex differences in patterns of sexual arousal.
A Qualitative Study of an Internet-Based Support Group for Women with Sexual Distress Due to Gynecologic Cancer
Women with gynecologic cancer may benefit from participating in online support groups which provide an environment of relative anonymity to discuss psychosexual concerns, and the online format provided women with easy access to the support group and anonymity in discussing psych homosexual concerns.
Psychosexual distress in women with gynecologic cancer: a feasibility study of an online support group
This feasibility study examines the participation rates and preliminary outcomes for an online support group designed specifically for women who are sexually distressed subsequent to gynecologic cancer treatment.
Physiology of women's sexual function: basic knowledge and new findings.
This manuscript encompasses data presented at the 3rd International Consultation on Sexual Medicine in Paris, France, July 10-13, 2009, and contains data about the actual role of sexual arousal in women in both procreation/reproduction and recreation/pleasure.
