Abstract

8 adult male beagles that had previously experienced 30-40 complete matings and 8 beagles that had experienced no copulations were given 7 series of mating tests extending for approximately 8 mo. after castration. No data from various measures of appetitive behavior and consummatory responses indicated that inexperienced Ss were inferior to experienced Ss in postcastration sexual performance. Most Ss of both groups continued to mate throughout the experiment, although a definite reduction in sexual motivation was apparent soon after castration of experienced Ss. Observations of the consummatory responses of experienced Ss revealed no reduction in duration of the intense ejaculatory reaction, but a significant reduction in the duration of the copulatory lock following castration.
