Recent Research Summaries
March 10, 2014
Insufficient privacy during sex is one of the most common issues that can interfere with a couple’s intimacy and sexual function. For example, lack of privacy may be an issue for young people who live with their parents or with roommates. It can also affect parents who have children at home. Assessments of sexual function do not usually include items on sexual privacy. This study examined the issue in a large sample of men who were consulting for sexual dysfunction.

The International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF) is considered the “gold standard” tool for assessing erectile dysfunction (ED). While categories of ED severity have been suggested based on the IIEF, there is currently no standard way to evaluate minimal clinically important difference (MCID) or define an ED treatment responder. As a result, there is no objective way to determine whether ED treatment is effective.
