Clinical neurophysiology is the study of the human nervous system through the recording of bioelectrical activity. In the realm of male sexual functioning, this includes using electrophysiologic techniques to study the nerves subserving erection, emission, ejaculation, and orgasm. To introduce the reader to the principles of clinical neurophysiology as they relate to the male sexual response, particularly erection. We review the pertinent autonomic neuroanatomy and neurophysiology of reflexes relevant to the male sexual response, as well as summarize the genital electrodiagnostic tests that are being used to interrogate the autonomic innervation pertinent to male sexual functioning. The male sexual response is a coordinated series of interactions between the somatic and the autonomic nervous systems.

Sexual reflexes in males and females comprise of complex integrated systems that are influenced by hormonal levels and sensory signals that are regulated by the central and peripheral nervous systems. Genital reflexes in males and females, such as genital arousal, erection and climax arise from spinal cord reflex mechanisms that are modulated by brain inputs. Other pathways, such as sexual desire and arousal may be regulated by higher central nervous system mechanisms, yet to be determined. The structural components and mechanisms that lead to Sexual Reflexes, in particular genital reflexes, are outlined in this essay. Skip to main content Skip to table of contents.
The primary characteristics of the behavior are a lowering of the forelimbs but with the rear limbs extended and hips raised, ventral arching of the spine and a raising, or sideward displacement, of the tail. During lordosis, the spine curves dorsoventrally so that its apex points towards the abdomen. Lordosis is a reflex action that causes many non-primate female mammals to adopt a body position that is often crucial to reproductive behavior.
