Can Sublingual Testosterone Increase Subjective and Physiological Measures of Laboratory-Induced Sexual Arousal?

Arch Gen Psychiatry. 2002;59(5):465-466. doi:10.1001/archpsyc.59.5.465

Recently1 we demonstrated a delay in effect of sublingual testosterone on both physiological and subjective sexual arousal in women. The delay for these effects was approximately 4 hours. We suggested that under the condition of testosterone administration, there were increases in physiological sexual responding during successive measures, and that the increase in subjective sexual excitement resulted from a heightened awareness of these alterations in genital arousal.
