 Sex: The science of sexual arousal
Men and women experience sexual arousal very differently, not only physiologically but psychologically, according to researchers who are studying arousal using an array of new and refined methods.
Those methods are making it possible for researchers to understand the causes of real-world problems, such as sexual dysfunction and high-risk sexual behavior (see pages 54 and 58).

 Reconceptualizing Sexual Arousal
This is a relatively new view of sexual response, but in other aspects of psychophysiology, the idea of a mechanism or system that evokes a response and one that suppresses a response working simultaneously is common, as is the idea that people vary in their propensity for these mechanisms.
The new model of sexual arousal could explain why some people experience sexual dysfunction and others don't, even in similar circumstances--perhaps there is an inherent tendency toward high levels of inhibition that increases the vulnerability of some people in difficult circumstances.
Sexual intercourse has always involved some vulnerability: attention is focused away from external cues for danger, one's partner can transmit a disease, and sexual activity can lead to destructive social consequences.

 The impact of sexual arousal on sexual risk-taking: a qualitative study Journal of Sex Research - Find Articles
It is being increasingly recognized, however, that sexual behavior is uniquely different from other types of risk-associated behavior because of the impact of sexual arousal: making decisions "in the heat of the moment" (Gerrard, Gibbons, and Bushman, 1996; Gold and Skinner, 1997; Kelly and Kalichman, 1995).
The degree of sexual arousal during the sexual encounter was negatively associated with condom use.
Our theoretical approach to studying the impact of sexual arousal on sexual risk-taking is based on the assumption that inhibition of sexual arousal, across species, is an adaptive mechanism that reduces the likelihood that sexual activity occurs in situations where such activity is likely to be disadvantageous (Bancroft, 1999).
