Many factors influence male and female sexual response and arousal. Describe how the three dimensions of sexuality (biological, psychological, and sociocultural) influence sexual response and arousal. Regarding the biological factors that influence sexual response and arousal our text reads, “Masters and Johnson showed that some aspects of the human sexual response cycle are similar in men and women; however, differences exist” (Greenberg, Bruess, & Oswalt, 2014, p. 177). For the differences in the sexes, I found it very interesting how men are aroused by their preferred gender. However, women are not necessarily gender specific and respond to a man/woman; two women; two men; and even animals having sex (Human sexual response cycle, n.d.). Regarding the sociological factors that influence sexual response and arousal Greenberg et. al. says, “Media and ads influence the types of sexual stimulation to which we react” (2009, p. 177). This is very true as we see in popular culture today as people on television or on billboard ads are mirrored by every-day people.
