Human Sexual Desire Disorder: Do We Have a Problem?
McNab, Warren L.; Henry, Jean
Health Educator, v38 n2 p45-52 Fall 2006
Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (HSDD), loss of sexual desire for sexual activity, is one of the most common sexual dysfunctions of men and women in the United States. This article presents an overview of this specific sexual dysfunction including incidence, possible causes, treatment options, and the role of the health educator in addressing this topic. The importance of the role of the health educator in prevention and health promotion efforts is explored, such as functioning as part of a multidisciplinary response team, addressing communication in relationships, and accessing professional resources to address HSDD, are described in concert with this dysfunction. Because satisfactory sexual functioning is an important aspect of most peoples' lives and often a barometer of their relationship, the response to HSDD should be through a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach and a health promotion perspective.
