[c-Fos is a transcription factor, and way to measure neuronal activity, nerve impulses] The long term inhibition of masculine sexual behavior after repeated ejaculations is known as sexual satiety. To investigate the brain areas that may regulate sexual satiety, c-Fos expression was studied in different groups of sexually experienced male rats: controls not allowed to copulate, males allowed two or four ejaculations and animals allowed to reach sexual satiety. Interestingly, males that ejaculated two or four times had similar c-Fos densities in all the evaluated brain regions, except for the suprachiasmatic nucleus. Similarly, sexually satiated males had analogous c-Fos densities in all the evaluated brain areas independently of the number of ejaculations required to reach satiety. …These results suggest that the network that underlies sexual satiety is different from that which regulates copulation.
