Using the South University Online Library, the Internet, or your readings, research about the four major sex researchers and their contributions in the field of sex research. Based on your research, create a report in a Microsoft Word document, which includes answers to the following questions:

  • How have they contributed in and advanced the field of sex research?
  • Do you think they were addressing the most fundamental questions about sex and sexuality through their research?
  • Do you think the fundamental questions have changed with changing times and can these theories be extended to accommodate changing sexual behavior?

Support your responses with examples.

Based on your understanding the various sexual response models compare the following:

Masters & Johnson’s Four Phase Model vs. Kaplan’s Triphasic Model of Sexual Response vs. Loulan’s Sexual Response Model.


Why was Masters and Johnson’s four phase model so controversial? Johnson argued that sexual problems are not the result of underlying neurosis or personality disorders, but are an outcome of lack of information, poor communication, or conflict between partners. Do you agree or disagree and why?

Which model, according to you, is the most accurate model that describes the human sexual response? Why?
