The complexity of sexual desire

To summarize what has been said so far, we can say that sexuality is a complex reality that escapes physiological explanation, since physiology only participates in it but does not determine it. Sexual excitement is rooted in the psychic order of things, and physical excitement is a result by means of a kind of transposition. Further, only a metaphysical view can fully explain the nature of both the psychological and the physiological aspects of sex, and as a whole we can say that sexual union is a mechanism for a process of a higher order and with a higher significance than any physical result.
