This chapter summarizes the anatomy and physiology of women’s sexual response  with a clinical perspective. The neurobiology of sexual function in women will be only briefly mentioned for sake of concision. More attention will instead be given to the anatomy and physiology of external genitalia and female organs, which will be summarized focusing on what clinicians should consider while examining the patient complaining of FSD.
