x.3.2.1 Sexual respons

The sexual response refers to the ability of the human body to respond to sexual stimuli in an appropriate i.c. pleasurable way. This may sound simple but in order to do so, an ingenious system developed, which was traditionally chronologically ordered in three phases. Although the actual way of sexual information processing is far more complicated, this chronological order is very useful for didactical reasons:
  1. Arousal phase, in which the body prepares for and engages in sexual interaction
  2. Desire, the psychological component of arousal 
  3. Orgasm phase, in which the sexual activity reaches a climax and conclusion 
  4. Resolution phase, in which the body recovers physiologically from the exertion and 
returns to the basic level of functioning.
