Psychosomatic Issues in Sexuality and Gynecology

  • Benjamin B. Wolman

Abstract

Sexual behavior represents a combination of physiological and psychological factors in males and females. Sexual behavior is regulated by the endocrine and nervous systems. Sexual arousal, penile tumescence in males, and vaginal lubrication in females belong to the realm of physiology. Sexual desires, courting, and sexual relations are psychological issues.
