 Study Offers Insight into How Brain Makes Us Want, Have and Inhibit Sex

A new study has provided a deeper insight into how our brain is involved in wanting, having and even inhibiting sex.

The review looked at how the brain impacts the sequence of physical and emotional changes that occur as a person participates in sexually stimulating activities.


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.
