Sexual Arousal

Sex can make us feel curious and excited. It can also make us nervous, embarrassed, and clueless. Sometimes it can feel like everyone you know is either doing it, has done it, or at least knows a whole lot more about it than you do. However, no matter how informed someone might seem, they probably have just as many questions and worries as you do. The word ‘sex’ refers to activities that involve the penis, vagina or anus (butt). It can also include other body parts like breasts, nipples and testicles. Sex should be safe, feel good and be consensual (that means everyone involved agrees to it). But there are also negative aspects of sex, for example, how it can be used in abusive and violent situations. Explore this section to learn all about sex!

Answering this question is important for several reasons. First, it’s always a good idea to have an understanding of how your own body works, including the sexual parts. That way, you can be comfortable with the way your body responds as you get sexually excited and you will also have a better idea if something is wrong that you should see a doctor about. Second, while no two people are exactly the same in the way they respond sexually, knowing what happens to the male and female body during the process of sexual arousal and orgasm helps you better understand what gets you or your partner excited. Understanding pleasure will result in a more mutually satisfying sexual relationship.

That is, your brain is what responds to a sexy thought or image, or having a feeling of closeness or affection toward a partner, or the touch of a partner by sending signals to the rest of your body, especially the genital area.  After that, your brain signals other parts of your body to feel  physical sexual arousal by increasing blood flow to the genital area causing the clitoris to swell and harden in women and the penis to become erect in men. Also, for both women and men, the heart beats faster, blood pressure increases, and breathing becomes more rapid. So in some basic forms, the process of male and female sexual response is quite similar. But because males and females have different reproductive organs we need to look at how sexual arousal affects the genital area separately.

We can see that there are some major similarities in the ways that males and females become sexually aroused and then have orgasms. However, keep in mind that there can be differences in the sexual responses of men and women.

On average, it takes more time for a woman to become aroused and have an orgasm than a man. This is important to know because it means that in a relationship between a man and a woman, the man may need to try to slow himself down and not expect that his female partner will become sexually aroused as quickly as he does.

The partners in same sex relationships are more similar to each other biologically but that does not mean that the pace of sexual arousal for two people of the same sex will necessarily match perfectly. In other words, everyone has their own pace of sexual arousal.

How fast we become aroused and have an orgasm can change from one day to another depending on a wide range of factors.
