The initial conversation, which led to the creation of these films came from a published study by Heather A Rupp, Ph.D. and Kim Wallen, Ph.D. titled “Sex Differences in Response to Visual Sexual Stimuli.” The study reviews and analyzes the ideas of gender and sexual neurological response. A study referenced within the publication discussed an exercise in which both men and women subjects were shown visual sexual stimuli (images of both men and women). The men in the study responded neurologically to images of the women, but not to the images of men. The women subjects responded to both images of the men and women. The question then arose, is it the women who participated in the study which were more responsive to the stimuli, or was it the woman subject matter, which provoked more response? The idea of inherent human sexuality as something of the objective or subjective.
