RAMLACHAN, P  e  CAMPBELL, M M. An integrative treatment model for patients with sexual dysfunctions. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2014, vol.104, n.6, pp.440-445. ISSN 2078-5135.

Sexuality is recognised as a fundamental and natural need, regardless of age or physical state. Sexual dysfunctions (SDs) are prevalent in the general population and can have a major impact on quality of life and psychosocial and emotional well-being. A high standard of sexual health is regarded as a fundamental right. However, these are self-reported conditions and patients may be reluctant to seek medical help because they are embarrassed. Surveys suggest that men appear to believe that the doctor should initiate questions about sexual health. In addition, SDs such as erectile dysfunction may be markers for comorbid conditions. Hence, a multidisciplinary approach to SDs is required.
