When placed with receptive females in a conditioning cage in which they had received shock male-mixed-strain rats “tended to ejaculate with less than the normal amount of genital stimulation.” The data also suggest that sexual experience in the same environment prior to receiving shock tends to reduce the effects of punishment upon later sexual performance in that environment. The effect is related to “situational anxiety.” From Psyc Abstracts 36:01:1EF45B. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
