In the human species, the development of the brain and its functions, especially of the cerebral cortex, transformed sexual intercourse, subordinated to a primary impulse, into a complex sexual act, from a neuropsychological point of view (1,2), with superior biological functionality determined by sexual dimorphism, sexual differentiation established up to the level of the last diploid cell in the body (3), in which neurohormones and neuromodulators play an essential role.
Sexual dimorphism is the result of a complex embryological process. As the anatomical structures appear from both morphologically close and distant areas, the rate of malformations of the genital tract is the highest in the human body (4), it directly affects sexual intercourse, through sexual dysfunctions, sexual deviations and intersexuality.
Nervous cells, through neurosecretion (neurohormones, neuromodulators, neurotransmitters) through chemical carriers transmit to specific receptors of other cells the information that determines the forms of sexual behavior (3).
