A theoretical model of dual control of male sexual response is considered, based on the balancing of central excitation and inhibition, with individuals varying in their propensity for both sexual excitation and inhibition of sexual response. A questionnaire method for measuring propensities for sexual excitation and inhibition has been developed (SIS/SES questionnaire), resulting in one excitation factor (SES) and two inhibition factors (SIS1 and SIS2). Evidence for the existence of both… Expand
An Exploratory Study of Factors Associated With Sexual Inhibition and Excitation: Findings From a Representative Survey in Flanders
TLDR
The results indicated that excitation and inhibition had a near normal distribution among men and women, however, the scores for sexual inhibition due to threat of performance failure among men, and for sexual inhibited due to the threat ofperformance consequences among women, were somewhat skewed.

The dual control model: The role of sexual inhibition and excitation in sexual arousal and behavior.
Psychophysiological studies of sexuality have largely, if not completely, ignored issues of individual variability in responsiveness. Most of the research published in this area involves theExpand
Using the dual control model to understand problematic sexual behaviors in men
Summary A strong sexual response in men is associated to a variety of sexual behaviors that can result in severe consequences, like hypersexuality, sexual risk-taking, and sexual coercion. However,Expand

TLDR
The development and initial validation of a questionnaire measuring the propensity for sexual inhibition and excitation in men: the Sexual Inhibition & Sexual Excitation Scales (SIS/SES), and their discriminant and convergent validity and test‐retest reliability are described. Expand
The Dual Control Model of Sexual Response: Relevance of Sexual Excitation and Sexual Inhibition for Sexual Function
Purpose of ReviewThe dual control model of sexual response aims to explain sexual behavior and response through two factors, labeled sexual excitation and sexual inhibition. Sexual dysfunctions areExpand

TLDR
The development and initial validation of the SESII-W is described, showing good test-retest reliability and discriminant and convergent validity, and the value of using qualitative data to inform questionnaire development. Expand

Psychometric Properties of the Spanish Version of the Sexual Inhibition/Sexual Excitation Scales for Men
TLDR
The measures of the Sexual Inhibition and Sexual Excitation Scales had good validity properties and a coherent relationship with sexual sensation seeking and erotophilia and developed a Spanish version in men. Expand

Central inhibition of sexual response in the male: a theoretical perspective
  • J. Bancroft
  • Medicine, Psychology
  • Neuroscience & Biobehavioral Reviews
  • 1999
TLDR
A theoretical model for central inhibition of sexual response is proposed, postulating individual variability in the propensity for such inhibition, and opens a new agenda for experimental research into adaptive sexual behavior, both human and animal. Expand
The control of deviant sexual behavior by drugs: A double-blind controlled study of benperidol, chlorpromazine, and placebo
TLDR
The libidoreducing effects of benperidol are presumed to be weak and unlikely to be sufficient to control serious antisocial sexual behavior, and the research method is suitable for assessing the effects of other drugs or hormones on sexual behavior. Expand
Are the effects of androgens on male sexuality noradrenergically mediated? Some consideration of the human
  • J. Bancroft
  • Medicine, Psychology
  • Neuroscience & Biobehavioral Reviews
  • 1995
TLDR
The evidence is consistent with a role for NA mediation in human sexual arousal, but suggests that more than one NA mediated system exist, involving both central arousal and inhibition of peripheral responses such as erection. Expand
Effects of alpha-2 blockade on sexual response: experimental studies with Delequamine (RS15385).

  • 2000
TLDR
It is concluded that the predominant role of the alpha-2 antagonist centrally is to increase arousal which in certain circumstances, is sexual and peripherally it is to modulate (block) the norepinephrine-induced contractility in the smooth muscle of the penis. Expand

  • J. Bancroft
  • Medicine
  • International Journal of Impotence Research

TLDR
The predominant role of the alpha-2 antagonist centrally is to increase arousal which in certain circumstances, is sexual, and the predominant role in the peripheral mechanisms is to modulate (block) the norepinephrine-induced contractility in the smooth muscle of the penis. Expand
The nature of androgen action on male sexuality: a combined laboratory-self-report study on hypogonadal men.
TLDR
The data and previous findings lead to the conclusion that the major androgen action on male sexuality involves libido factors (i.e. sexual motivation/interest). Expand
Sex therapy outcome research: a reappraisal of methodology. 1. A treatment study of male sexual dysfunction.
TLDR
A controlled treatment study of male sexual dysfunction yielded treatment groups which differed with respect to variables of possible prognostic significance, so the results are largely uninterpretable. Expand
Stress and the Erectile Response to Intracavernosal Prostaglandin E (1) in Men With Erectile Dysfunction
TLDR
There was no support for the hypothesis that inhibition of response to ICI results from increased circulating NE, though the possibility that increased NE release occurred specifically in the erectile tissues could not be excluded. Expand

TLDR
The relationship between depressive symptoms and MED in middle-aged men is robust and independent of important aging and para-aging confounders, such as demographic, anthropometric and lifestyle factors, health status, medication use, and hormones. Expand
