Overview

Although sexual psychophysiology has made great strides over the past few
decades, the progress made has not been accompanied by much effort to integrate
research findings or to stimulate methodological and theoretical discussions among
researchers. Yet this new research area has the potential to make substantial
contributions to understanding a wide range of phenomena, including the spread of
HIV/STIs, sexual "addiction" or compulsivity, the use (or nonuse) of
birth-control methods, sexual infidelity, and aggressive sexual behaviors.
Psychophysiological methods can assist in the exploration of the underlying
psychological, physiological, and affective processes, and, perhaps more
importantly, how they interact. In this volume, editor Erick Janssen brings together
wide-ranging essays written by an authoritative group of researchers, representing
the cutting edge of sexual psychophysiology.
