We assessed the outcomes of gender affirming surgery (GAS or sex reassignment surgery) four to six years after first clinical contact, and the associations between postoperative (dis)satisfaction and Quality of Life (QoL). Our multicenter, cross-sectional follow-up study involved persons diagnosed with Gender Identity Disorder (DSM-IV-TR) who applied for medical interventions from 2007 until 2009. Of 546 eligible persons, 201 (37%) responded, of whom 136 had undergone GAS (genital, chest, facial, vocal cord and/or thyroid cartilage surgery)...

Persistent genital arousal disorder (PGAD; Leiblum & Nathan; 2001) is characterized by distressing symptoms suggestive of genital arousal in the absence of subjective feelings of arousal. Although awareness of PGAD is growing, there continues to be a lack of systematic research on it. This study characterized an online sample of women with symptoms of persistent genital arousal (PGA) in terms of their symptom characteristics, medical comorbidities, triggers and management strategies, and predictors of distress...

Sexuality is presumptively and observably a powerful core element of the human pair-bond relationship. Technological advances of the last half-century have made media a dominant cultural and developmental presence, including scripting sexual relationship attitudes and behavior. Theoretically and empirically, we examine loneliness as it relates to pornography use in terms of pornography's relational scripting and its addictive potential. Empirically, we examine the associative nature between pornography use and loneliness using a measurement model and two structural equation models where pornography use and loneliness are regressed on each other, respectively...

Pornography availability has increased in recent years and while there is plenty of speculation about its effects, empirical investigation about how porn influences our lives has yielded mixed results. Additionally, few studies have addressed the effects of specific pornography characteristics. Past research has shown that male-centric pornography can be related to negative outcomes, while female-centric pornography is related to more positive outcomes, particularly in women. The present survey study examined the relationship between pornography characteristics (male- and female-centric) and the self-reported attitudes and sexual experiences of men and women...

The current study examined the relationship between traditional masculine traits and attitudes towards vibrator use, actual vibrator use and frequency of vibrator use in China. In all 235 Chinese females aged between 16 to 58 years completed a questionnaire regarding attitudes to, and personal use of, vibrators. The results showed a positive association between masculine traits and attitudes towards women's vibrator use; attitudes towards vibrator use and actual vibrator use, as well as frequency of vibrator use...

The provision of sex therapy primarily occurs for middle class couples by middle class clinicians. This conceptual/clinical paper advocates for sex therapy approaches that better meet the needs of individuals and couples within a broader socioeconomic range. Every couple, regardless of socio-economic status, deserves first class sex therapy that helps establish a satisfying, secure, and sexual relationship from an empathic, respectful clinician who remains sensitive to specific vulnerabilities and challenges related to economic and social class factors...

Human and animal data indicate that the dopaminergic system plays a crucial role in sexual drive and function. Using a double-blind, placebo-controlled crossover design this prototype-study investigated the effect of the D2-dopamine agonist cabergoline on sexual parameters in thirteen healthy women. Cardiovascular and genital parameters were monitored continuously. Sexual drive and function were measured using self-report sexual experience scales. In contrast to previous theories and assumptions we found that cabergoline did not alter objective and subjective sexual parameters in healthy women...

The sexual life of couples and their needs during pregnancy receive little attention in practice. The aim of this study was to evaluate an educational intervention delivered to pregnant couples to improve their sexual function and satisfaction. This quasiexperimental study was conducted on 128 couples, allocated into two groups of intervention (group A: couples, group B: pregnant women) and one control group (C). Postintervention, the mean of the total score of sexual function and satisfaction of the couples was significantly higher in the intervention groups compared with the control group (p < 0...

Self-forgetfulness is a facet of self-transcendence characterized by tendency to experience altered states of consciousness. We examined associations of self-forgetfulness with sexual desire and frequency. Two hundred sixty-one Portuguese men and women completed the self-forgetfulness subscale of the Temperament and Character Inventory-Revised, a measure of openness to experience, and a questionnaire on desired and actual frequency of vaginal intercourse, noncoital sex, and masturbation in the past month. In simple and partial correlations controlling for openness to experience and relationship status, women's self-forgetfulness correlated with desired frequency of intercourse and noncoital sex...

The increasing incidence of requests for medical services to support gender transition for children, adolescents, and adults has consequences for society, governmental institutions, schools, families, health-care professionals, and, of course, patients. The sociological momentum to recognize and accommodate to trans phenomena has posed ethical dilemmas for endocrinologists, mental health professionals, and sexual specialists as they experience within themselves the clash between respect for patient autonomy, beneficence, nonmaleficence, and informed consent...

What causes some marriages to stand the test of time while others fail? Marital commitment is the key force underlying the stability, quality, and longevity of the romantic relationship. Commitment is strengthened in the presence of marital satisfaction, the absence of alternative attractions, and steady investments made in the relationship. Commitment is also a consequence of increasing dependence. When partners are emotionally engaged with their virtual connections, their dependence on the significant other decreases...

The aim of this review is to present the beliefs related to sexual activity during pregnancy. We identified 13 studies (3122 participants). The main positive beliefs about sex in pregnancy were that it makes labor easier, promotes marital harmony, prevents infidelity and improves fetal well-being. Negative beliefs were more frequent; they were that sex could harm the unborn child (cause injuries, miscarriage or fetal infection) and endanger the pregnancy or maternal health (cause membrane rupture, bleeding, preterm labor and maternal infection)...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Few prospective studies have evaluated the impact of premenstrual symptoms (PMS) on female sexual function and sexuality related distress. Therefore the purpose of the present study was to find out risk factors of PMS for  female sexual function and sexuality related personal distress. METHODS: This prospective cohort study was conducted at the Suleymaniye women's health and disease, research and education hospital, Istanbul, Turkey between February 2014 and March 2016...

This study compared the effectiveness of a skill-based bibliotherapy intervention and a placebo pill intervention purported to be efficacious in increasing women's sexual desire. Forty-five participants were randomized into the two groups after completing pre-test measures of sexual desire and functioning. After completing their interventions, participants completed 6-week post-test, and 12-week follow-up measures. Results demonstrated that when compared to the placebo pill group, the bibliotherapy group made statistically greater gains from pre-test to follow-up in sexual desire and satisfaction...

Ana Carvalheira, Cynthia Price, Cide F Neves
The goal of this study was to explore potential body awareness and bodily dissociation differences between men and women with and without sexual difficulties, using the Scale of Body Connection in a sample of 909 participants. In women, bodily dissociation scores were significantly higher across all reported sexual difficulties, except in sexual pain. Women with lack of sexual interest and sexual arousal had significantly lower body awareness when compared to women without these difficulties. These findings suggest the importance of targeting body awareness and bodily dissociation in the treatment of women's sexual difficulties...
