NYT Magazine piece on female arousal

A fascinating look into the world of sexologists, and a few of them who are particularly focused on how women are aroused.

A few sneak peaks:
  • In a test, one of the sexologists measured arousal of subjects both by physical signs (e.g. genital blood flow) and by subject ratings (via a keypad).   Men universally said they were most aroused when all the data suggested they would be.  Women, on the other hand, would often indicate no arousal on their dial but display many of the physical signs.
  • Viagra works for men because the desire for sex is almost always present and impotence is typically physical
  • There's no Viagra equivalent for women, because desire is often unrelated to physical signs of arousal.
