Genital Warts Associated with Sexual Dysfunction in Men
The ISSM is pleased to announce that its third professional journal, Sexual Medicine Reviews has officially launched and will be published quarterly by Wiley.

Sexual Medicine Reviews commissions systematic, evidence-based reviews in the global field of sexual medicine.

Upcoming Events in Sexual Medicine
A new study in The Journal of Sexual Medicine reports that men with genital warts are more likely to have higher rates of sexual dysfunction, depression, and anxiety.
While these outcomes have been studied in relation to other sexually-transmitted infections, Turkish researchers noted that little research has focused on genital warts.
To learn more, they used questionnaires to assess the sexual function, depression, and anxiety of 187 men. One hundred sixteen men had genital warts. The remaining 71 men served as a healthy control group.
Higher scores on the questionnaires indicated higher rates of sexual dysfunction, depression, and anxiety.
The men with genital warts scored statistically higher on the depression and anxiety assessments when compared to the controls. For sexual dysfunction, those with genital warts scored higher than their healthy counterparts in the following domains: sex drive, arousal, penile erection, ability to reach orgasm, and satisfaction from orgasm.
“These results demonstrated that [genital warts] had a significant relationship with [sexual dysfunction], depression, and anxiety,” the authors said.
