Socioaffective Neuroscience & Psychology — Call for Papers

Orgasm: Neurophysiological, Psychological, and Evolutionary Perspectives



Editors: Adam Safron, Victoria Klimaj, and Harold Mouras

Orgasm is perhaps the strongest natural reward. Given the centrality of reproduction for biological imperatives, the power of sexual climax is unsurprising. Yet despite the evolutionary, cultural, and clinical importance of this aspect of sexual functioning, much about orgasm remains poorly understood. This special issue of Socioaffective Neuroscience & Psychology will focus on the neurophysiology, psychology, and evolutionary biology of orgasm. We seek to bring together a diverse collection of manuscripts including novel empirical findings (using either quantitative or qualitative methods), literature reviews, and theoretical models.

How to submit: Please go to the website of the journal, read the Author Guidelines carefully and then click the “Submit a manuscript” button in the upper right-hand corner and follow the instructions. The section to select is “Orgasm: Neurophysiological, Psychological, and Evolutionary Perspectives”
