I was watching ASAPScience video on the Male vs Female Orgasms.

At 1:45 they say that PET scans of brain show that arousal of men and women are different.

enter image description here

How exactly are these different, as in what part of the brain is activated and how is arousal interpreted by brains of different sexes of cis straight people?

  • $\begingroup$ The second part of your question relating to "arousal of Transgenders and Homosexuals" needs some clarity. You can be both transgender and homosexual at the same time, just as you can be transgender and straight. Are you including these gender expansive individuals? If so, that to me is a broad question which needs focus. Don't forget there are others like biromantic and pansexuals. Or are you not needing to know about any possible differences with them? $\endgroup$ Jan 2 at 8:56
  • $\begingroup$ @ChrisRogers the question is mainly about what happens to cis straight people. That's the main part. I was curious as to whether a gay guy's brain activity would be similar to that of cis straight men or women? Etc. The question is whether orientation and trans status influence these activity or not. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ The question on "whether orientation and trans status influence these activity or not" is a third question in its own right. I think you need to start with asking about cis straight people, then ask a separate question regarding differences with homosexuality (gay or lesbian) and if you are interested in bisexuality, that's a separate question. Then look at one transgender group (trans homosexual or trans straight or trans bisexual or ...). You see how broad your question is now and how it would lead to a book size answer? $\endgroup$ Jan 2 at 11:01
