Experts noted that the cerebral cortex region of the brain was involved in all three phases of the sexual pleasure cycle; wanting sex, having sex, and inhibiting sex, and each of these phases depends on distinct networks within the brain. It's also clear that alterations in these brain networks are associated with sexual dysfunction.

Dr. Janniko Georgiadis said that for all its primitive functions, human sex draws heavily on the functionality of the part of the brain that has evolved most recently, the cerebral cortex.

The study is published in Clinical Anatomy.
