Psychopathology associated with sexual dysfunction

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The association between sexual disorders and psychological functioning was investigated in this study. Seventy‐eight subjects who applied for sex therapy were divided into the following groups: Sexual Desire (SDD) and Erectile Disorder; Orgasm (ORG) and Premature ejaculation (PME) disorders. Fifty‐six sexually functional subjects served as matched controls. The MMPI was administered to all subjects. The results indicated that the SDD and Erectile groups produced the most disturbed profiles, while the ORG and PME groups yielded profiles within normal limit (WNL). A good fit of individual to group profiles was found for SDD, but not for PME and ORG; thus, clinical interpretation was possible for the former only.
