Research from several IASR members was recently featured in the Nature Outlook: Women's Health. In the article, titled "Sexual arousal: Sex matters," author Anna Petherick writes:
"...research into women's psychological and physiological experiences of sex, and associated problems, has played second fiddle to equivalent work in men. Although a few other areas of biology and medicine also give women short shrift, the difference in sex research is compounded by cultural uneasiness at the idea of a woman's sexuality being distinct from her fertility. It has not helped that women lack an arousal marker that is as simple to measure as a penile erection. Some progress has been made...But rigorous exploration of the mechanisms underlying these associations — and how, therefore, women's sex lives might be improved — has only recently begun."
