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.
