Abstract

These results provide physiological validation of the hypothesis that women with complete SCI can respond with audiovisual stimulation similarly to able-bodies women in those functions that are controlled neurologically above the level of their injuries, whereas, genital vasocongestion will not occur because the neurological pathway is interrupted. In contrast, reflex genital vasocongestion can occur in women with complete SCI despite a lack of subjective arousal. These findings can be used to educate women with complete SCIs about their sexual responses.
