Remember diagramming sentences in grammar school? It turns out you can diagram sex in the same way! Well…maybe not exactly the same, but sex does have four very distinct stages! First comes desire, which is the basic wish for sex. It happens before any physical signs occur in your body. Desire can arise without the remaining three stages. This happens when you have a racy thought at the office, but go back to work. Next is arousal, where blood flows to the genitals, causing a man’s penis to stiffen and a woman’s vagina to swell. Orgasm, the third stage, occurs when a series of contractions force the congested blood out of the genitals and back into circulation. The sexual cycle finishes with resolution, when heart rate and blood pressure return to normal, and the sexual organs go back to an un-aroused state. We’re sure you’ll agree that this diagram is more fun than the ones you did in school!
