Abstract

The frequent tendency of patients today to consult their doctor about sexual disorders is undoubtedly related to the increasing openness shown toward sexual matters in general. Yet freedom in this domain has brought about not only advantages. Greater knowledge and wider opportunity very easily lead to attitudes in which personal commitments of this kind are regarded in the light of sexual ‘performance’, and it is particularly under such pressures that failure is encountered. These pressures and concomitant fears of not coming up to expectations are the most frequent causes of functional disturbances; such factors are generally found to constitute an ominously linked reaction in which fear of the symptom leads to the symptom.
