South Asian women are underrepresented in research studies on sexuality. Sexual attitudes and values present in South Asian cultures differ greatly from those in White cultures. The study followed an empirical essentialist framework, drawing on the Dual Control Model as a theoretical basis. This postulates that sexual arousal and associated behaviours depend on 'dual control' mechanisms in the brain involving the balance of separate and relatively independent excitatory and inhibitory processes. Based on the significant differences present between White and South Asian cultures, it was expected that there would be significant differences in propensities for Sexual Excitation (SE) and Sexual Inhibition (SI).
