Evidence for a curvilinear relationship between sympathetic nervous system activation and women's physiological sexual arousal.
The first empirical examination of a possible curvilinear relationship between SNS activity and women's genital arousal using a direct measure of SNS activation in 52 sexually functional women suggests that there is an optimal level of S NS activation for women's physiological sexual arousal.
The physiological basis of human sexual arousal: neuroendocrine sexual asymmetry.
- Psychology, BiologyInternational journal of andrology
It is indicated that the different balance of androgens and oestrogens in men and women may generate asymmetric effects on each of the components of the autonomic nervous system, thereby explaining some of the differences in patterns of sexual arousal and the responses cycle across the sexes.

It is feasible that, when women are seeking a partner (Lust), norepinephrine and dopamine may facilitate attention toward sexually relevant stimuli.
What Can Animal Models Tell Us about Human Sexual Response?
- Psychology, BiologyAnnual review of sex research
Identification of common neurochemical and neuroanatomical substrates of sexual responding between animals and humans suggests that the evolution of sexual behavior has been highly conserved and indicates that animal models of human sexual response can be used successfully as preclinical tools.
