Sevda Demir, Ergul Aslan
The aim of the study was to determine the effect of sexual counselling based on the BETTER model on female sexual health in the infertile women with sexual dysfunction. This is an experimental, prospective study carried out in an infertility clinic. The study included 70 women with primary infertility, of whom 35 were in the experimental group and 35 were in the control group. Female Sexual Function Scale and Golombok-Rust Sexual Satisfaction Scale were administered at the initial assessment and the final assessment...

Self-report measures of sexuality may be influenced by people's conscious concerns about confidentiality and social desirability. Alternatively, non-conscious measures (e.g., implicit association tests; IATs) are designed to minimize these validity concerns. We constructed an IAT measure of sex guilt using 154 male and female university students. The sex guilt IAT demonstrated convergent validity as it correlated with various sexual behaviors and incremental validity as it improved the prediction of several sexual behaviors beyond that provided by the Mosher sex guilt scale...

INTRODUCTION: This study investigates people who have sex with animals (PSA) by describing their living situation, sexual activity, beliefs, and attitudes toward stigmatization. These data are highly applicable to the work of psychiatric and forensic professionals investigating paraphilias. METHODS: We apply mixed-methods approach, using qualitative and quantitative analyses. RESULTS: The findings come from anonymous forum postings of 953 participants; of which 345 agreed to complete a survey upon advertising the study...

This study uses qualitative methodology to explore narrative responses to a question regarding the harmful versus beneficial effects of adult-child sex on children. Data were gathered from a survey of self-identified minor-attracted persons (MAPs). Two hundred and sixty-seven survey participants provided narrative responses. Results indicated a significant amount of variability in perceptions of harm and of mitigating or aggravating factors. Understanding the subjective perspectives of MAPs, the range of their attitudes, and the issues that they identify as pertinent is critically important for clinical efficacy in the treatment of pedophilia...

Sexual consent has permeated mainstream discourse as a mechanism used to decrease rates of sexual assault and increase sex-positive communication. Women's external consent behaviors are frequently examined; however, research exploring their internal consent and feelings associated with sexual activity are understudied. The purpose of this study was to understand how partner status and sexual behavior at most recent sexual activity influence women's external/internal consent and feelings during sexual activity...

(100 words) This study was to investigate prevalence of and factors associated with inconsistent condom use with regular female sex partners (RP) among heterosexual male STD patients (MSTDP) in China. We interviewed 413 MSTDP who had had sex with at least one RP and received a diagnosis within the past one week to six months. The prevalence of inconsistent condom use with RP was 42.9% since STD diagnosis. Associated factors included perceptions related to condom use based on the Theory of Planned Behavior, regret about the decision of having unprotected sex with RP and perceived personal partners' responsibility of using condoms...

Narcissistic men that engage in out-of-control extra-marital sex can be challenging to treat when their cultural background reinforces their misogyny and sense of entitlement, as it does among ultra-Orthodox Jewish men. A case study illustrates the challenges for a female clinician helping an unfaithful, married, narcissistic ultra-Orthodox Jewish male refrain from seeing prostitutes. He devalued the approach of his female therapist and the client had to learn that he was not entitled to women's love and respect, but that he needed to earn it by transcending his egocentrism and demonstrating empathy rather than contempt for women...

Taylor Kohut, Aleksandar Štulhofer
Despite increasing concerns that adolescent men are vulnerable to developing compulsive pornography use, little research has been done in this area. Given recent theorizing and research concerning moral incongruence, we hypothesized that symptoms of compulsive pornography use should generally be associated with higher levels of pornography use and increased growth in male adolescent pornography use over time, but that this pattern would be attenuated among very religious participants. These hypotheses were tested with mixed effects growth models using two independent panel samples of male Croatian adolescents...

There is an understudied, meaningful distinction between high frequency of pornography use and the subjective feeling that this behavior is out of control. We examined whether the quality of a couple's relationship and sex life can strengthen or weaken the association between frequency of Internet pornography use and perceived lack of control over this behavior. In a sample of 1,036 participants, results showed that frequency of pornography use was more strongly associated with feeling out of control when relationship and sexual satisfaction were lower...

Ariel B Handy, Cindy M Meston
Laboratory studies assessing physiological genital arousal have largely failed to find differences between women with and without female sexual arousal disorder (FSAD). Therefore, it is possible that women with FSAD may be unaware of their genital arousal response. The present study examined the extent to which women with FSAD can report their genital arousal response, as well as the role of interoception (body awareness) in this relationship. Additionally, this study examined the influence of interoception on the relationship between subjective and genital arousal...

The objective of this paper was to develop a measure of sexual script flexibility when approaching a sexual problem in a relationship. A series of online studies were conducted with individuals in relationships. As one subscale on the two-factor model had poor convergent and discriminant validity, a final single factor scale with 6-items was retained. The single factor scale demonstrated good model fit, high internal reliability, adequate convergent and discriminant validity, and moderate test re-test reliability...

Siobhan Sutherland, Uzma S Rehman
Our goal was to examine how implicit theories can be applied to understanding women's coping responses to sexual problems. The belief that sexual desire changes over time is a type of incremental theory, while the belief that sexual desire is stable is a type of entity theory (Dweck, 2012 ). We examined how different implicit theories of sexual desire influence how women cope with sexual desire challenges. Also, we sought to determine whether women's perceptions of experiencing a sexual desire challenge moderate the relationship between their implicit beliefs and their coping responses...

This study examined trait anxiety and sexual cognitions in 610 men with premature ejaculation (PE) (DSM-IV-TR criteria) and in 107 partners of these men, and compared their scores to normative data. Sexual anxiety, intravaginal ejaculatory latency time, feeling of control over ejaculation, and PE-related distress were also assessed. The scores of 343 participants (56.23%) with clearly identifiable subtypes of PE according to Waldinger's classification system (lifelong, acquired, variable, and subjective subtypes) were compared in these domains...

In this experimental study, 89 participants were allocated to an offending pedophile, nonoffending pedophile, or control video condition. They then watched two short help-seeking video clips of an older male and a younger male (counterbalanced). Judgments about each male were assessed, as were general attitudes toward pedophiles and sexual offenders. Offending pedophiles were judged as more deserving of punishment than the nonoffending pedophiles and controls. Age of the male was found to have an effect on judgments of dangerousness...

We examined the role of gender-confirming treatment (GCT; i.e., hormonal treatment and genital surgery), psychological well-being, and body satisfaction in the sexual feelings and behaviors of transgender adults. A survey was conducted among a nonclinical sample of 325 male-to-female (MtF) and 251 female-to-male (FtM) Dutch adults (17-76 years, Mage = 41.87), divided into those with no GCT desire, those who desired (more) GCT, and those who completed GCT. Findings indicated that whereas GCT may positively affect sexual feelings, particularly in MtF persons, body satisfaction may play an even bigger role...

The present study examined the possibility of different groups of child sexual abuse (CSA) survivors based on their different patterns of attachment and sexual problems. A sample of 324 CSA survivors and 484 participants who did not report any child maltreatment experiences completed online questionnaires. A cluster analysis on attachment and sexual outcomes revealed that CSA survivors formed two distinct profiles. The first profile included CSA survivors with elevated attachment anxiety and low to moderate scores on attachment avoidance, sexual compulsion, and sexual avoidance...

INTRODUCTION: Psoriasis may have negative impact on many aspects of patient life. OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to evaluate the influence of psoriasis on erectile dysfunction and other sexual problems in men with psoriasis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 76 men aged between 20 and 66 years (mean 43.9±13.2 years) were enrolled. Psoriasis severity assessed according to PASI ranged from 2.0 to 49.8 points (mean 15.1±10.3 points). All patients were asked to complete International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF-5), Beck's Depression Inventory and Dermatology Life Quality Index...

Previous studies have revealed that many individuals in settled relationships engage in online sexual activities (OSAs). Considering this, this study examined the influence the perceived infidelity of OSA has on the OSA experiences of individuals in such committed relationships. OSAs involve viewing sexually explicit material, seeking sexual partners, cybersex, and flirting. Taking these specific activities, we measured perceived infidelity concerning OSAs by asking our participants (N = 301) to select either "yes" or "no" in regard to whether they believed each constituted an infidelity...

The current study constitutes a qualitative investigation of experiences with and perceptions of consensual nonmonogamy (CNM) among a sample of 21 bisexual and plurisexual women with different-gender partners. Participants from Massachusetts, USA, and Toronto, Canada, were interviewed four times during pregnancy and the postpartum period. Using an inductive qualitative approach, we found participants were selective about CNM disclosure, and generally apprehensive about stigma surrounding CNM involvement. Additionally, results emphasize the importance of communication and highlight the range of barriers to and benefits of CNM endorsed by these parents...
