Abstract

Building on well-established mechanisms that produce the primary female mating behavior, lordosis, research is extending into mechanisms for sexual arousal. Genes and neurochemical pathways supporting sexual arousal are reviewed, and four neurochemical/biophysical routes by which generalized arousal could influence sexual arousal are charted.
