Response patterns and intensity of skeletal movement involved in sexual reflexes of 8 castrated chronic spinal (paraplegic) male dogs were not altered by withdrawal and administration of testosterone propionate. Duration of intense ejaculatory reaction and of simulated copulatory lock was reduced by withdrawal and extended by administration of testosterone propionate. These quantitative changes were probably influenced by androgen on spinal neurons involved in the mediation of sexual reflexes. (17 ref.) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved).
