sexual disorientation disorder

Amy B Mullens, Ross McD Young, Michael P Dunne, Graham Norton
A measure of perceived reinforcement associated with amyl nitrite was developed and evaluated among gay and bisexual men. This is the first known expectancy measure to date for this drug class. The Amyl Nitrite Expectancy Questionnaire for Men who have Sex with Men (AEQ-MSM) was completed online by 102 gay and bisexual men, between 2006 and 2008 in Queensland, Australia. The AEQ-MSM demonstrated good psychometric properties and was associated with consumption patterns. Factor analysis revealed three distinct reinforcement domains: "Enhanced sexual desire and pleasure," "Disorientation," and "Sexual negotiation...

Let us now revisit our original assumptions. First, we note that for the participants in Hacinas Carnival the Tarasca is a figure of fun and joy, but it also exudes a strain of aggressive misogyny that many female residents, not to mention tourists, find somewhat unsettling. In the spirit of feminist currents in Spain, a group of young women protested in 1992 to town officials and, when rebuffed, sought to build their own female monster, which they intended to use to attack boys and men. While their plan was never carried out, and indeed met with stiff opposition from officialdom and, especially, from older women, some of the younger, more modern girls find the Tarasca appalling, and they told me so without compunction...

INTRODUCTION: Transient global amnesia (TGA) is characterised by impairment of anterograde memory and, to a certain extent, retrograde memory, which is associated with mild temporal and spatial disorientation that is completely re-established after a few hours. There are different hypotheses about its pathogenesis, including theories about a possible epileptic, migrainous or ischaemic foundation or its being due to venous congestion in the hippocampuses, although the cause remains unknown...

John, a 14-year old white male of European Jewish descent without a prior history of medical or psychiatric problems, presented following several days of increased need for sleep (16-20 hours per day), disorientation, difficulty maintaining attention and concentration, bizarre behaviors. He was sexually inappropriate toward his mother, sister, and housekeeper, masturbated in public, and sang nonsense lyrics. In addition, he had brief periods of agitation, paranoia (including fear that he was being followed and that he would be hurt by the physicians), and periods of distraction by auditory and visual hallucinations...

BACKGROUND: Despite the recent dissemination of group homes in Japan for older adults with dementia, the behavioral and psychological features of the residents remain unknown. To clarify the association of such features with the levels of difficulty encountered by caregivers in coping with these symptoms, we have conducted a survey to compare the frequencies of the symptoms among group homes, nursing homes and a long-term care hospital. METHODS: Five hundred and eighty-six older adults aged 65 years or more were sampled...

Radical cystectomy is the standard treatment for muscle-invasive bladder cancer. Today, most patients can undergo substitution enteroplasty following cystectomy. Recto-colic urinary diversions and cutaneous ureterostomy are now uncommon. An ileal conduit (Bricker) may be proposed to patients with urethral involvement, as well as to elderly patients and to women who are at a high risk of severe urine leakage following enteroplasty. Thanks to progress in anesthesia, surgical techniques and intensive care, cystectomy with substitution enteroplasty is now a routine procedure...

This report presents systematic clinical data regarding psychiatric diagnoses, personal and family psychiatric histories, and symptomatologic aspects of 90 consecutive human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-seropositive and acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) patients, of whom slightly less than two thirds were at risk due to intravenous drug abuse. In addition, a comparison was made between the distribution patterns of these variables at various stages of HIV illness and related at-risk behaviors. Eighty-four percent of the patients met criteria for a spectrum of DSM-III-R diagnoses (mostly affective) that were associated with high rates of affective and alcohol abuse disorders among first-degree relatives...

Acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) has neuropsychiatric and psychopathological complications: anxiety, depressive symptoms, and suicidal ideation are common. Patients may express anger toward ineffective medical care and perceived public discrimination, guilt about sexual practices or drug abuse, reactions to social isolation, and uncertainty about the implications of an AIDS diagnosis. CNS dysfunction and subsequent neuropsychiatric impairment are common and are initially characterized by decreased acuity, slowed mentation, and psychomotor retardation that can resemble depression...

Two patients with complaints of hypoglycemia came for evaluation, and both complained of intermittent episodes of mental dullness, disorientation, confusion, and palpitations relieved by eating. Plasma glucose levels at the time of symptoms were always above 70 mg/dL. Initial onset of symptoms was within 1 to 2 years after cessation of repeated incest, and on recognition of this, both patients associated the onset of episodes of similar feelings with the acts of incest. Recognition of this connection did not decrease the frequency of episodes...

This study is based on 20 cases of disturbed female clients whose marriages were arranged at an under age ranging from 9-13 years. When the men have paid the dowry and fulfilled the marriage customs they are entitled to have sexual intercourse with their wives. Some have this sexual intercourse before or shortly after menstruation and some even have seen their husbands only once or twice before their hands are given in marriage. This early sexual experience, mostly against the will of the underage girls, can precipitate positive or negative reactions...
