Only recently have fMRI scanners developed the resolution to accurately scan this deeply embedded region. By contrast, their subjectively reported sexual arousal differed between stimuli depending on the sex of the actors in the films and was congruent with their self-declared sexual preferences. Recent work supports the idea that the brains of men and women respond differently to sexual stimuli contingent upon the content of the stimuli. It is possible that, in general, women may pay more attention to contextual and nonsexual details of sexual stimuli than men do. In fact, with orgasm, there is amygdala deactivation and orgasm, particularly in men, is followed by a period of lessened interest in sexual stimuli.
The ideal male body is depicted as something that has power and strength.

Journal of Sex Research. Detection of differential viewing patterns to erotic and non-erotic stimuli using eye-tracking methodology. A recent study found that men characterized by high levels of hypermasculinity and ambivalent sexism reported more sexual partners when they had a female experimenter administering the anonymous survey, than if they had a male experimenter. Women reported lower levels of sexual arousal across all of the films than did men, but reported higher levels of arousal to female- than male-selected films. This could only be resolved by using films of similar content, but made by men or women. Why you hating on my vibe.
