To Crageb: photoreceptors are strictly for sending chemical impulses which are interpreted by the brain which will decide whether or not the image being presented represents a significant chance to reproduce otherwise all images of all sorts would always stimulate sexual arrousal. Also; did you think the eyes alone are responsible for starting the phsyiological reaction that stimulates an individual? If so you've got a lot to learn about physiology and about women. Either way I think we can safely assume what you use the internet for. There are a multitudes of hormones that are quickly produced that are responsible for the physiological changes a person is undergoes during stimulation and there are a greater multitude of possible causes of arousal; from the sight of the dilation of a persons eye to intimate physical contact. Just FYI when a person is physically attracted to another his or her eyes will become more dilated so as to take in more of a good thing. You will subconsciously notice this and your body will react accordingly. When you notice that 'look' in his or her eyes that excites and attracts you so, that is what is happening. Men are typically more visual than women and therefore more prone to being stimulated when they see a member of the opposite sex. Women, however, are less visual and will be aroused based off of emotional or physical factors. It is not so much that hormone levels rise in their blood as crageb said, but in their brains and nervous systems that cause blood pressure to rise and allow normally constricted arteries in the pubic regions to open up and cause greater blood flow in those areas of the male and female bodies. Veins may also constrict to force blood to stay in those areas longer as well. The nerve cells in the skin in those areas then become more sensitive to pleasure stimulation. The person is now 'horny'

Like pretty much everything, it all comes down to hormones. In males, testosterone, and in females, estrogen. Essentially, it comes down to the reason for living, which is to reproduce and make the species survive, so we are created to want to have sex to have kids, although of course us humans do it moreso for pleasure.

Just think about it...after a dog, or any other animal for that matter, is neutered, they lose the will to survive. Maybe not literally, but you know, they don't want to have sex anymore, they stop humping stuff, and they altogether calm down.

I agree. It's definitely hormones. Your photoreceptors recieve a signal for arousal through the eyes and send it to your brain by sensory nuerons and then react upon it by a feedback mechanism that hightens their senses and makes the hormones rise in their blood.

It is definitely hormones. Receptors in your brain are given a certain signal and that is what makes you horny. It is human nature.
