Background: Several pharmacotherapeutic approaches have confirmed the influence of neuroendocrine parameters on sexual desire, function, and fantasies in men; however, the relevance of acute neuroendocrine changes in mediating heightened sexual drive remains unknown. We recently demonstrated that plasma prolactin substantially increases following orgasm in healthy men, suggesting a feedback mechanism for peripheral prolactin in the control of acute sexual arousal. Because prolactin appears to… Expand
The Neurobiology of Sexual Responses and Its Clinical Relevance
TLDR
The knowledge of the neurobiology of sexuality forms the basis for the treatment of sexual dysfunctions in psychiatry and other areas and is necessary for diagnostics, counseling, and treatment ofSexual problems. Expand
High Rates of Sexual Behavior in the General Population: Correlates and Predictors
TLDR
Elevated rates of impersonal sex are associated with a range of negative health indicators in the general population, and the association between hypersexuality and paraphilic sexual interests was particularly strong for both genders. Expand
Hormonal profiles behind the heart of a man.
TLDR
The libido and sexual life of a man is initiated and maintained by testosterone and SHBG, which have negative correlation with very low-density lipoprotein, triglycerides, body mass index and body fat mass. Expand
The role of testosterone in sexuality and paraphilia--a neurobiological approach. Part II: testosterone and paraphilia.
TLDR
From a neurobiological perspective an extended scientific proposal for design features to investigate the effects of antiandrogen treatment in large clinical trials is presented. Expand

Data regarding the role of prolactin in sexual function in men are inconsistent. Hyperprolactinemia may be associated with decreased libido and reduced sexual activity. In the elderly and those withExpand

Knowledge of the neurobiology of sexuality forms the foundations for the treatment of sexual dysfunctions in psychiatry and other disciplines. Expand
NEW THERAPEUTIC OPTION AND INSIGHTS INTO THE IMPACT OF SYMPTOM SEVERITY ON QUALITY OF LIFE IN WOMEN WITH INTERSTITIAL CYSTITIS
TLDR
Being unmarried and symptom severity are important factors that may disturb the QOL in IC patients and the use of intravesical PPS simultaneously with oral PPS is an effective therapeutic option. Expand
A brief natural history of the orgasm
Why the sexual climax, in humans, results in a pleasurable experience remains an important biological question. Analysis of evolutionary traits in numerous Vertebrates suggests that orgasm evolved ...
Bio-Network Inspired Cooperative Intelligent Controllers

Orgasm-induced prolactin secretion: feedback control of sexual drive?
TLDR
A theoretical model of the role of PRL as a neuroendocrine reproductive reflex is proposed, suggesting that PRL may represent a peripheral regulatory factor for reproductive function, and/or a feedback mechanism that signals CNS centres controlling sexual arousal and behaviour. Expand
Neuroendocrine response to film-induced sexual arousal in men and women
TLDR
Analysis of prolactin, adrenaline, noradrenaline, and cortisol concentrations, together with cardiovascular variables of systolic/diastolic blood pressure and heart rate were undertaken during film-induced sexual arousal, demonstrating that increases in plasma Prolactin during sexual stimulation are orgasm-dependent and suggesting that prolact in may regulate a negative-feedback sexual-satiation mechanism. Expand
Endocrine response to masturbation-induced orgasm in healthy men following a 3-week sexual abstinence
TLDR
It is demonstrated that acute abstinence does not change the neuroendocrine response to orgasm but does produce elevated levels of testosterone in males. Expand
Time course of effects of testosterone administration on sexual arousal in women.
TLDR
There is a time lag in the effect of sublingually administered testosterone on genital arousal in women, and a consecutive increase in vaginal arousal might cause higher genital sensations and sexual lust. Expand
NEUROENDOCRINE AND CARDIOVASCULAR RESPONSE TO SEXUAL AROUSAL AND ORGASM IN MEN
TLDR
Orgasm induced transient increases in heart rate, blood pressure and noradrenaline plasma levels and none of the other endocrine variables were significantly affected by sexual arousal and orgasm. Expand
Altered sexual function and decreased testosterone in patients receiving intraspinal opioids.
TLDR
Serum testosterone levels and other sex hormones, including follicle-stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, sex-hormone-binding globulin, and prolactin, should be measured prior to and at various points during intraspinal opioid therapy. Expand
The association between testosterone, sexual arousal, and selective attention for erotic stimuli in men
TLDR
The results suggest that lower thresholds for sexual arousal are associated with a greater bias to attend to sexual information and that T may have effects on cognitive-motivational aspects of sexual behavior by enhancing attention to relevant stimuli. Expand

TLDR
Various pharmacological agents including serotonin reuptake inhibitors, antiandrogens, LHRH agonists, and others have been documented as reducing sexual desire and an algorithm for the use of these drugs in the treatment of the paraphilias as well nonparaphilic hypersexuality is outlined. Expand
Contribution of dihydrotestosterone to male sexual behaviour
TLDR
It is shown that dihydrotestosterone is the dominant hormonal determinant of the frequency of orgasms in young healthy adults and differences in concentrations of circulating dihydotestosterone within the normal range may represent a major predictor of sexual activity in healthy young men. Expand
The effects of exogenous testosterone on sexuality and mood of normal men.
TLDR
It is concluded that supraphysiological levels of testosterone maintained for up to 2 months can promote some aspects of sexual arousability without stimulating sexual activity in eugonadal men within stable heterosexual relationships. Expand
