Penile circumference changes and subjective sexual arousal were recorded when erotic material depicting the same sequence of events was experienced in five different modes: film, slides, spoken-text, written-text, and fantasy. Twenty-four men were tested within a repeated-measures design, with the order of presentation of modes counterbalanced across subjects. Sessions were separated by 24 hr or more. The highest levels of physiological and subjective arousal were found for film, while fantasy… Expand
Male Sexual Arousal Elicited by Film and Fantasy Matched in Content
Abstract Penile tumescence and subjective sexual arousal were measured while 36 men viewed an erotic film segment and soon afterwards reproduced imaginally the sexual events that had been depicted inExpand
Sexual arousal across phases of the human menstrual cycle
TLDR
Three experiments assessing sexual arousal to erotic stimulation at several phases within the menstrual cycle provide no support for the claim that female sexual response varies systematically across the menstrual period. Expand
Women's sexual and emotional responses to male- and female-produced erotica
TLDR
The largest contribution to female sexual excitement might result from the processing of stimulus-content and stimulus-meaning and not from peripheral vasocongestive feedback. Expand
Sexual and Emotional Variables Influencing Sexual Response to Erotica: A Psychophysiological Investigation
TLDR
The level of sexual arousal elicited by the erotic segments was related to the extent to which subjects were entertained by the film, even though there was considerable anxiety generated by the portrayed sexual scenarios. Expand
What kind of erotic film clips should we use in female sex research? An exploratory study.
TLDR
Erotic film clips reliably produced a state of self-reported arousal in women and tended to depict heterosexual vaginal intercourse, which should be used in future research of sexual function and response of women. Expand
Voluntary control of male sexual arousal
TLDR
Results support the value of requiring attendance to experimental stimuli and of analyzing trends/patterns of arousal across an entire experimental period in identifying attempts to “fake” sexual preferences. Expand
The effects of secondary stimulus characteristics on men's sexual arousal
The penile plethysmograph is believed by many researchers and clinicians to be the most valid and reliable instrument currently available for assessing male sexual arousal patterns. Stimuli used toExpand
Depressed affect and male sexual arousal
TLDR
The findings of delayed subjective arousal with no diminution in tumescence, although contrary to predictions, are consistent with previous research with sexually dysfunctional men and provide partial support for the role of depressed affect in the etiology of erectile dysfunction. Expand
Sexual arousal and arousability to pedophilic stimuli in a community sample of normal men
Self-reported and physiological sexual arousal to adult and pedophilic stimuli were examined among 80 men drawn from a community sample of volunteers. Over ¼ of the current subjects self-reportedExpand
Psychophysiological assessment of male sexual arousal following spinal cord injury
TLDR
Adult males with and without permanent damage to the spinal cord were contrasted in terms of their sexual responsiveness to erotic stimulation in film, spoken-text, and fantasy modes, and within each modality the two groups demonstrated similar rates of buildup of arousal over segments of stimulation.

Male sexual arousal with repeated exposure to erotic stimuli
TLDR
Results are discussed with reference to stimulus, subject, context, and measurement variables that potentially influence the extent to which repeated exposure to erotic material affects sexual arousal within the laboratory and sexual activity outside the laboratory. Expand
Correlates of fantasy-induced and film-induced male sexual arousal
Penile circumference and subjective arousal were recorded while 66 men attempted to achieve erection by engaging in fantasy. Similar measures were taken while the same men viewed an erotic film. NotExpand
Male sexual arousal and the law of initial value.
TLDR
The data indicate that male sexual arousal can be investigated without the need to adjust change scores to take into account initial value, at least when guided relaxation has been used to stabilize basal rates. Expand
Measurement of sexual arousal in male homosexuals: Effects of instructions and stimulus modality
TLDR
During suppression, video tape continues to elicit relatively high levels of arousal in contrast to slides and audio tapes, which are equally low, although both video tape and slides show substantial voluntary suppression effects. Expand

TLDR
It was found that films produced much greater penile volume changes in all subjects than did slides depicting the same theme and there were clear and consistent differentiations of preference in terms of themes. Expand
A comparison of male and female patterns of sexual arousal
TLDR
The results indicate that males and females differ in both the direction and magnitude of their arousal response to a variety of erotic stimuli and that there is a stronger correspondence between subjective and physiological measures of sexual arousal for males than for females. Expand
Attending to stimuli or to images of sexual feelings: effects on sexual arousal.
TLDR
Sexual arousal after the SR-instruction correlated with frequency of masturbation, but not with the taking of initiatives in sexual interactions, and correlations between sexual arousal and sexual behavior and fantasies outside the laboratory were studied. Expand
