The Most Disturbing Study EVER

In the British Medical Journal in 1999, there was a paper titled, "Magnetic Resonance imaging of the male and female genitals during coitus and female sexual arousal".

I won't describe the rest of the paper, however, I will say that we had a fruitful discussion about motion artifact suppression in my office.

Actually, I do have to give this quote: "Only the first couple was able to perform coitus adequately without sildenafil (experiments 1 and 2). The reason might be that they were the only participants in the real sense: involved in the research right from the beginning because of their scientific curiosity, knowledge of the body, and artistic commitment. And as amateur street acrobats they are trained and used to performing under stress."

you know... I don't understand that study. wouldnt the neural signal from the sex/orgasm be very much correlated with motion? i mean its sex! the MR signal would be crap.
