Our objective was to confirm that it is feasible to take images of the male and female genitals during coitus and to compare this present study with previous theories and recent radiological studies of the anatomy during sexual intercourse. Magnetic resonance imaging was used to study the anatomy of the male and female genitals during coitus. Three experiments were performed with one couple in two positions and after male ejaculation. The images obtained confirmed that during intercourse in the… Expand
Coitus as revealed by ultrasound in one volunteer couple.
TLDR
The clitoris and vagina must be seen as an anatomical and functional unit being activated by vaginal penetration during intercourse to explain the pleasurable sensitivity of this anterior vaginal area called the G-spot. Expand
Magnetic resonance imaging to determine the distribution of a vaginal gel: before, during, and after both simulated and real intercourse.
TLDR
High-resolution magnetic resonance imaging of the female pelvis was performed to determine whether simulated intercourse with a plastic phallus could be used as a surrogate for real intercourse for such experiments and the cervix appears to be adequately covered with gel both before and after intercourse. Expand
MRI of female genital and pelvic organs during sexual arousal
TLDR
Using MRI, specific changes in the female genitalia and pelvic organs with sexual arousal are observed, in both pre- and post-menopausal women, using contrast enhanced magnetic resonance imaging. Expand
Contemporary Review of MRI in Benign Genitourinary Pelvic Medicine: What Every Urologist Should Know
Herein we report a systematic review of literature to identify the contemporary focus areas of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) use in benign Urology and present the highest yield results. MRI,Expand
[Anatomy and physiology of sexuality].
TLDR
There are similarities between men and women concerning the activation of cerebral zones in sexual arousal contexts in laboratory conditions and several neurotransmitters are closely involved in the control of sexuality at the central level. Expand
Anatomy of the clitoris and the female sexual response
TLDR
The clitoris is the center for orgasmic response and is embryologically homologous to the male penis, and it is necessary to understand the intricate anatomy of the organ to assess the data in this regard. Expand
Optimizing outcomes of vaginal prolapse surgery with and without mesh
TLDR
Anatomic and functional outcomes of midline fascial plication under continuous digital transrectal control were good and risk factors for anatomic failure were initial size of posterior POP (stage ≥ III) and prior colposuspension. Expand
Anatomic variation and orgasm: Could variations in anatomy explain differences in orgasmic success?
TLDR
Orgasms are complex phenomena involving psychological, physiological, and anatomic variation, and while these variations predispose people to certain sexual function, future research should explore how to surgically or medically alter these. Expand
Vaginal Laceration and Hemorrhagic Shock during Consensual Sexual Intercourse
TLDR
It is found that the lacerated sites were located at right posterior fornices in all cases and it is postulate that these vulnerable sites of vaginal laceration may be due to the dextro-rotation characteristics of the uterus and the distensibility of the vagina in this area. Expand
Trocar-guided mesh repair of vaginal prolapse using partially absorbable mesh: 1 year outcomes.
TLDR
Improved anatomic support, associated with excellent functional improvements, without apparent safety concerns is demonstrated at 1-year following trocar-guided transvaginal prolapse repair using a partially absorbable mesh. Expand

Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Sexual Intercourse: Initial Experience
TLDR
A preferential contact of the penis in erection with the anterior vaginal wall and the anterior cul-de-sac in the face-to-face sexual position is observed in this initial experience of sexual intercourse under MRI. Expand
Magnetic resonance imaging of male and female genitals during coitus and female sexual arousal
TLDR
Taking magnetic resonance images of the male and female genitals during coitus is feasible and contributes to understanding of anatomy. Expand

TLDR
The newer techniques have often confirmed selected features of the original EPOR model but have also shown that the characterisation of the coital changes just by a unitary model is inappropriate and new observations suggest a plurality in the changes that can occur. Expand

TLDR
The entire anterior vaginal wall, including the deeper situated urinary bladder, periurethral tissues and Halban's fascia, rather than one specific spot, were found to be erotically sensitive in most of the women examined, and 64% of them learned how to reach orgasm by direct specific digital and/or coital stimulation of this area. Expand
Innervation of the human vaginal mucosa as revealed by PGP 9.5 immunohistochemistry.
TLDR
The more distal areas of the vaginal wall had more nerve fibers compared to the more proximal parts and biopsies from the anterior wall generally were more densely innervated than the posterior wall. Expand
Vaginal erotic sensitivity.
TLDR
Findings indicate that the vagina of most women has a zone (or zones) of erotic sensitivity whose appropriate stimulation can lead to orgasm; it does not support, however, the particular location and characteristics of the vaginal erogenous zone described by other authors. Expand
Vaginal sensitivity to electric stimuli: Theoretical and practical implications
TLDR
The study provides data underscoring previous anatomical and clinical research findings regarding the sensitivity of the anterior vaginal wall and the inefficiency of coitus for inducing female orgasm. Expand
