Introduction. Sexual response consists of many stimuli, physical and mental processes that take place in the body. There are known attempts to use objective methods to measure physiological reactions, but it is practically impossible to measure mental reactions with this method because they are subjective feelings that have an individual character.
Aim of the study. The aim of the study was to present the sexual physiological-psychological reactions of the body.
Selection of materials. The search was conducted in the Scopus database using the terms sexual reaction, female organism, pregnancy 1999-2018. The literature found in the Google Scholar database was analysed for the highest number of quotations. The literature selected in this way was used as the material for this work.
Conclusions. The sexual behaviour of women is influenced by biological, cultural and social factors, among others. These factors have determined that women's sex has manifested itself in different ways over the centuries, and different models of love have been built for a given period of time.
