Many men may wish that they had a bigger penis, even if their penis is normal in size. Penile augmentation procedures are aimed at increasing penis length or girth.
A small battery-powered electrical device called a vPatch may be a future treatment option for premature ejaculation (PE), according to the results of a recent study.
ISSM Committees are the work horses of the ISSM! Our committee members put their time, energy, and expertise into the many ISSM initiatives that serve our members, patients, and push the field forward. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all committee members who have rotated off ISSM Committees at the end of 2022.

In this second episode of the ISSM Podcast, Professor Emmanuele Jannini talks about Premature ejaculation: what is it and how can it be treated?
Listen to this interesting talk, hosted by Shelly Varod (Israel), certified sex therapist and member of the ISSM Podcast Team.
Breast cancer screening involves checking a person’s breasts for cancer before there are any signs or symptoms of the disease. This is a useful practice, because the earlier cancer is detected in patients, the more likely it is to be successfully treated and cured. While both men and women can get breast cancer, it is much more common in women. As such, breast cancer screening is generally geared toward women. (Check out this article to see how breast cancer may impact a person’s sexuality).
Sexual boredom, or the feeling that sex has become too dull, mechanical, or routine, can occur for both men and women in long-term relationships. Previous research has suggested that there may be an association between sexual boredom and sexual desire, but little is known about this potential relationship.
Female sexual dysfunction (FSD) is fairly common and affects between 10-40% of women. It encompasses multiple conditions that cause marked interpersonal distress or difficulty in at least one area of sexuality: desire, interest, arousal, orgasm, or pain.
For men with testosterone deficiency, testosterone supplementation may be a good way to raise their testosterone levels to get them into the normal range. Bringing low testosterone levels into the normal range can have positive benefits such as increased sex drive, increased muscle mass, denser bones, and improved mood. Nevertheless, testosterone therapy is not recommended for men who already have normal testosterone levels, and it may even cause severe side effects.
Recently, an international panel of experts convened to develop a set of guidelines for sexual health care for patients with prostate cancer and their partners. The panelists used available evidence and their own expertise to develop these guidelines, accounting for patients’ unique cultural, ethnic, and racial backgrounds as well as their gender identities and sexual orientations.
