The Gender Difference in Concordance is Due to Methodological Artifact It may be that there is no real gender difference in concordance, but the current methods of assessing self-reported and genital sexual responses attenuate concordance estimates in women or increase concordance estimates in men. First, men have an obvious external cue of their genital response by having a penis that they can see when unclothed and feel when it presses against the body or against clothing during erection. Kappa could not be calculated in some cases because the cross-tabulations of the two ratings were not symmetric. So many guys put girls on pedestal when it comes to orgasms.
Selection Criteria for Inclusion in the Meta-Analysis Studies were included in this meta-analysis if they reported data from which the correlation between a self-reported and genital measure of sexual arousal in response to a specified sexual stimulus could be obtained and if they met several other criteria, as explained below. In their paper, male sexual arousal showed directional agreement, such that increases in sexual responses resulted in greater agreement, and partially supported intensity agreement if men were able to see their erections. Just tell your girl you want to try something.
