Sex differences in human physiology are distinctions of physiological characteristics associated with either male or female humans. These can be of several types, including direct and indirect, direct being the direct result of differences prescribed by the Y-chromosome (due to the SRY gene), and indirect being characteristics influenced indirectly (e.g., hormonally) by the Y-chromosome. Sexual minorities also include transgender individuals—men and women who identify themselves as the opposite gender whether or not they have undergone any kind of gender re-assignment and people with intersex characteristics, previously termed hermaphrodite, who are born with or develop anatomical sexual characteristics that are neither.

Clitoris, female erogenous organ capable of erection under sexual stimulation. A female homologue of the male penis, the clitoris develops (as does the penis) from the genital tubercle of the fetus, and it plays an important role in female sexual response. The effects of the trauma can be short-term or last long after the sexual assault or rape. While this page describes effects survivors often experience, it is not exhaustive.
