Sexual Anxiety in Sexual Dysfunction

  • Diana G. Patterson (a1) and Ethna C. O'Gorman (a2)

Abstract

Sexual anxiety was examined in 98 patients presenting with sexual dysfunction and 68 of their partners at a psychosexual clinic using the SOMA questionnaire. All patients had raised values for heterosexual anxiety. Female partners had raised values while male partners did not. This provides further evidence for the role of heterosexual anxiety in the aetiology and treatment of sexual dysfunction.
