Is Female Sexual Function Related to the Male Partner’s Erectile Function?

Researchers from Taiwan have discovered a significant correlation between a woman’s sexual function and the erectile function her male partner.

Six hundred thirty-two heterosexual couples completed anonymous online surveys. The women responded to questions from the Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI).  For the men, questions from the International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF) were used. Both men and women provided information about demographics, comorbidities, and perceptions of sexual dysfunction.

Fifteen percent of the men had erectile dysfunction (ED) and almost 43% of the women had sexual issues.

The researchers found that the women whose partners had ED had lower scores on the overall FSFI and on each of that tool's individual domains. These women also had a higher prevalence of sexual problems in every FSFI domain.  

The study authors suggested an “interdependence of male and female sexual function within the context of the couple.” The study findings also “support the importance of screening the partner’s sexual function when treating the sexual problems of each gender.”

The study was published online in November in the Journal of Sexual Medicine. Please click here for more details.
