Email sexual advice study highlights problems raised by different ages and cultures
Date:9/22/2011

ail advice in supporting patients with sexual problems."

Analysis of the 673 emails that required an in-depth reply showed that:

  • 71% were from the UK, 23% were from outside the UK and the rest were unknown. Men aged 21 to 30 were most likely to make contact by email, accounting for a quarter of those received.

  • The most common problems were erection problems (69%), loss of sex drive (17%), premature ejaculation (12%), masturbation problems (10%) and genital problems (12%).

  • Erection problems increased with age and the age groups most concerned with premature ejaculation and lack of sex drive were 31 to 40 years and 41 to 50 years respectively.

  • Men in the UK were more likely to express concerns about erection problems and lack of sex drive than men outside the UK. UK men with erection problems tended to be older than those outside the UK averaging 47 years of age compared with 37 years.

  • Premature ejaculation and masturbation worries were more commonly reported by men from outside the UK, particularly from the Indian subcontinent. These included concerns that excessive masturbation in adolescence had caused their current sexual problems.

  • 70% of the men who expressed concerns about the size of their penis or a bend in their erection were under 40.

  • Advice included contacting their family doctor, getting their testosterone checked - particularly if they were over 40 or had diabetes or heart disease - and referral to a specialist charity for sexual and relationship therapy.

"Telephone advice lines are an established source of support for patients with sexual problems" says co-author Professor Kevan Wylie, who specialises in sexual medicine at Sheffield Care NHS Trust. "Our study shows that e-mail advice and counselling are also an increasingly important and effective resource for men who find it difficult to discuss intimate issues with their family doctor.
