Abstract

Male rats in which the glans penis was removed at 20 days of age showed all of the sexual behavior patterns of normal rats, including ejaculation, when tested as adults. However, the distribution of the behaviors within the patterns was statistically different from normal: the experimental males required a greater number of mounts and a longer time for ejaculation than did control males.
