Some open secrets about sexual arousal

Some open secrets about sexual arousal by Stephen Snyder The secrets of sexual arousal are hidden in plain sight. You just have to know what you’re looking for.

Using data from three studies of men and women engaging in masturbation or penile-vaginal intercourse […]
