Looking back over the development of orgone biophysics, Reich wrote: "My experimental studies during the years 1934 to 1938 gradually and logically centered on a single basic problem: how deeply is the function of the orgasm rooted in biology?"  The Bioelectrical Investigation of Sexuality and Anxiety is composed of three essential contributions from the period: "The Orgasm as an Electrophysiological Discharge," "Sexuality and Anxiety," and "The Bioelectrical Function of Sexuality and Anxiety," Reich's detailed report on the physiological experiments in which he sought proof for his orgasm theory.  The Bioelectrical Investigation of Sexuality and Anxiety "can with good reason be understood as a logical continuation of my Character Analysis," Reich wrote.  "It is the character analysis of the areas of biological functioning."
