Men in Macapá Stay Sexually Satisfied Throughout Lifespan

Men who live in Macapá, Brazil, a city in the Amazon rainforest, enjoy a high quality of sexual life into older age, scientists have found. 

Located far from another industrialized city, Macapá is not accessible by road. Its location provides an opportunity for researchers to study sexual health in a more self-contained population. 

Male members of the research team met individually with 385 men between the ages of 18 and 69 at the men's homes. All participants completed the Male Sexual Quotient. 

Throughout the age groups, the men reported at least moderate overall sexual satisfaction. Some groups said they were highly satisfied.

More information, including suggested reasons for these satisfaction rates, can be found here.

Book Contributors Wanted

Please note the following announcement from ISSM members David Rowland and Emmanuele Jannini: 

We are looking for high quality authors to contribute chapters to a seminal book -- Cultural Differences and the Practice of Sexual Medicine -- to be published by Springer in 2019.

The book covers a wide range of topics, from LBG and transgender issues to sexual response/dysfunction and paraphilia—all from a cross-cultural perspective.

Most chapters have already been assigned, but several remain unfilled, mainly dealing with transgenderism, LBG from Muslim and/or non-Western perspectives, and the sexual paraphilia.

If you are interested and would like to talk, please contact David Rowland (david.rowland@valpo.edu) and/or Emmanuele Jannini (eajannini@gmail.com) at your earliest convenience. This promises to be an exciting and important contribution to the literature.
