Differences in Sexual Response for Men During Partnered Sex and Masturbation

Differences in Sexual Response for Men During Partnered Sex and Masturbation

Introduction

Sexual function is typically assessed within the context of partnered sexual activity for both men and women. Nevertheless, masturbation is a very common sexual activity that could provide valuable information about an individual’s sexual response/function. For example, determining if/how a person’s sexual response differs during partnered sex versus masturbation could have big implications regarding the potential causes of and possible treatments for any sexual dysfunctions. To this end, the authors of a recent Journal of Sexual Medicine study explored the differences in sexual response during masturbation and partnered sex for a large, multinational sample of men with and without sexual dysfunction.

Treating Erectile Dysfunction With Low-Intensity Shockwave Therapy and Tadalafil: The Results of a New Clinical Trial

Introduction

Erectile dysfunction (ED), or the inability to get or maintain an erection firm enough for satisfactory sexual activity, is a relatively common condition that affects men worldwide.

One such therapy is low-intensity shockwave therapy (LiST).

How Might Exercise Impact the Sexual Function of Patients With Prostate Cancer

Introduction

Sexual difficulties are a common and distressing side effect of prostate cancer and its treatment. Patients who experience sexual dysfunction (e.g., erectile dysfunction (ED), loss of sexual desire, or both) after having a prostatectomy or undergoing radiation or hormone therapy may also struggle with the psychological and relational ramifications of this change. For example, they may experience a loss of self-confidence regarding their body image and sexual performance and/or worry about not being able to satisfy their sexual partner(s).

The Role of Androgens in the Sexual Function of Women with Rectal Cancer

Introduction

Women who survive rectal cancer may experience sexual difficulties or dysfunction during and after treatment. Chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and rectal surgery can impact urinary, bowel, and sexual function. According to previous studies, 60% of women report an increase in vaginal dryness and dyspareunia (painful intercourse) after rectal cancer treatment. There is also a high incidence of reduced sexual desire and decline in frequency of sexual activity for rectal cancer survivors.
