Sexual dysfunction refers to problems that prevent the individual or couple from experiencing satisfaction from sexual activity. The sexual response cycle traditionally includes excitement, plateau, orgasm, and resolution. Desire and arousal are both part of the excitement phase of the sexual response. Among 43 percent of women and 31 percent of men report same degree of sexual dysfunction. While research suggests that sexual dysfunction is common, that many people are hesitant to discuss regarding sexual problems with their partner. Sexual dysfunction can affect any age, although it is more common in those over 40 because it is often related to a decline in health associated with aging. Sexual dysfunction generally is classified into four categories, they are Desire disorders (lack of sexual desire or interest in sex), Arousal disorders (inability to become physically aroused or excited during sexual activity), Orgasm disorders (delay or absence of orgasm) and Pain disorders (pain during intercourse).
