Penis volume changes in response to pictures of nude females and males of various ages provided a basis for determining the order of erotic appeal or aversion in a group of 48 non-deviant, young adult males. Continuous measurement of volume changes permitted an assessment of an “acceleration” response and its latency. The acceleration score and a combined acceleration-volume score seems to be superior to the previously utilized volume difference score alone. The latency of response proved of no value in discriminating between the picture types.Significantly greater erotic aversion was demonstrated to the adult than to the adolescent male. Concerning the male child, no significant difference in rank could be detected.
