The Refractory Period(For Women Only)



During the stages of sexual intercourse occurs the resolution. This is the last phase of the Sexual Response Cycle and it only occurs in men. Males experience a refractory period, during which erection cannot be achieved (the duration of this period varies among individuals and increases with age). Women experience no refractory period—they can either enter the resolution stage or return to the excitement or plateau stage immediately following orgasm.

The cycle includes: Stage 1: Desire, Stage 2: Excitement (arousal), Stage 3: Plateau ,Stage 4: Orgasm, Stage 5: Resolution
