Fortunately the female, unlike the male, does not have to produce an erection for sexual intercourse. However, any lack of hormones, particularly testosterone, lessens her sexual desire and interferes with her enjoyment of sex. It is strange but true that the male sex hormone is responsible for arousal in the female, and the female sex hormones in the male. The female sex hormones, oestrogen and progesterone, are responsible for a woman’s feminity and the normal changes in her sexual apparatus during menstruation, sex and pregnancy. Similarly, testosterone in the male is responsible for his manliness and for the development of his sexual organs including the penis. The hormones keep their respective sexual machinery in trim to respond to a stimulus from the arousal centre. Hence both sexes need male and female hormones for effective sexual responsiveness. The same three reflex mechanisms as in men, Arousal (AM), Copulatory (CM), and Regulating Mechanism (RM), are involved in female sexual behaviour.
