Sexual Disorders

What are they?

They are a group of disorders related to the ability to respond sexually as desired or related to the pleasure an individual might experience. A person can possess multiple sexual disorders. Untreated sexual disorders could lead to other conditions or complications such as decreased self-esteem, relationship disturbance or even depression.

All sexual disorders require a thorough evaluation from a licensed physician in order to discard biological causes or other non-psychological factors.

Erectile Dysfunction

Described as the inability to acquire or maintain an erection during sexual intercourse. This disorder requires a full assessment of the patient’s history due the multiple possible causes or triggers.

Delayed Ejaculation

Among the least common male dysfunctions, characterized by a noticeable delay or inability to ejaculate, regardless of the desire to ejaculate and the presence of sexual stimulation. It is important to note that time is not used for the criteria of this disorder, but more the desire of the individual to ejaculate at a given moment.

Female Orgasmic Disorder

It is the lack of frequency, noticeable delay or complete absence of orgasm, followed by a noticeable reduction in intensity when orgasm does occur. Unlike other disorders, this one happens to be more subjective due to each person experiencing orgasms with variable levels of intensity.

Female Sexual Interest/Arousal Disorder

It is the absence or reduced interest or excitement to sexual activity, sexual thoughts, lack of initiative to sexual activity, absence of sexual pleasure during sexual activity. Providing noticeable discomfort to the individual.

Note: Do not confuse with Asexuality which can be defined as: “Asexuality is the lack of sexual attraction to others or low or absent interest in or desire for sexual activity.” – Robert L. Crooks; Karla Baur (2016). Our Sexuality. Cengage Learning. p. 300. ISBN 978-1305887428.
