Love and Passion: with recent contributions from infant research, recognition theory, and neuroscience.

Dr Lawrence Hedges Ph.D., Psy.D., ABPP

Sexual pleasure can be meaningfully distinguished from other forms of sexual experience– from sexual stimulation, arousal, preoccupation, satisfaction, gratification, and various other forms of sexual fulfillment. The human capacity for momentarily separating stimulus from response thus permitting symbolization of experience allows an infinite variety of sexual experiences unimaginable in any other species. Sexual pleasure can be cultivated in the human species as a psychological event– as an intersubjectively achieved sense of union not attainable by members of other species.
