Male erection is an example of ______. No thought or emotion is required for it to occur, but conscious control can influence it.

A) peripheral nerves
B) sensory nerves
C) a spinal reflex
D) A sexual reflex

I chose choice A because the book states the following " sensory nerves carry massages from special receptors in the skin, muscles and other internal and external sense organs to the spinal cord , which sends them along the brain. These nerves put us in touch with both the outside world and activities of our own body."
