Invited Symposium: Genital Sensation: CNS Targets and Functions in Females
At first coitus 1% of young women but 98% of young men achieve orgasm. By age 40, 98% of women report orgasm at genital stimulation. Whether it is simply the young man's ignorance as he moves to the rhythm of his own feedback stimulus and only slowly learns to consider his partner's rhythmic potentials; and/or the female genital apparatus is more complex remains unknown. Evidence suggests she may have 3 separate potential locations for ever more complex orgasmic experiences. Genital stimulation in the presence of a man more than once in the nonmenstruating week associates with the steroid secretion patterns of fertility. Weekly genital stimulation can reduce the potential for atherosclerosis, provide the physiologic substrate for building bone mass during the 30s, prevent osteoporosis thereafter, and delay aging. Sporadic activity has the opposite effect. Abstention during the time of menstrual flow reduces the risk of endometriosis and dysfunctional uterine bleeding. These pathologies increase the risk of hysterectomy which may reduce women's sensory responses to genital stimulation. For heterosexual women, the sensory responses to genital stimulation are dependent on the skill of her male partner and his understanding of female physiology. The functional responses may be more dependent upon his pheromones.
