This course explores cultural beliefs and messages about sex and the human body and helps develop an understanding of how these impact optimal sexual functioning. An overview of male and female reproductive processes (menstrual cycle, menopause, sperm production and ejaculation) will be provided, as well as, discussions on internal male organs and prostate problems. Students will learn to describe the role of hormones in male and female sexual behavior, Masters and Johnson four-phase sexual response cycle, and Kaplan’s threephase cycle of sexual response and how to apply that knowledge in a clinical setting.
