The magazine Playgirl famously launched as a source of sexual imagery targeted at presumably heterosexual women. It just as famously ended up with a readership of mostly homosexual men. The issue with such studies is the social and cultural baggage about sex and desire that women likely bring into a controlled laboratory environment. With the goal of stripping away that baggage and focusing only on a biological response, a research group has collected and processed brain-imaging findings from 61 relevant studies, producing a result likely to generate some controversy. His team sought to look more holistically at brain networks that respond to visual sexual stimuli while excluding influences such as touch. With that curtain out of the way, Noori says, the team found that being male or female contributes very little to which neural networks fire up in response to visual erotica.
