The Impact of Migration on Attitudes to Female Genital Cutting and Experiences of Sexual Dysfunction Among Migrant Women with FGC.

Authors:
Sara Johnsdotter

Curr Sex Health Rep 2018 23;10(1):18-24. Epub 2018 Feb 23.

Faculty of Health and Society, Malmö University, 205 06 Malmö, Sweden.

Purpose Of Review: The purpose of this review was to explore current research on the impact of migration on issues related to female genital cutting and sexuality.

Recent Findings: There is growing evidence that migration results in a broad opposition to female genital cutting among concerned migrant groups in western countries. In addition, after migration, affected women live in the midst of a dominant discourse categorizing them as "mutilated" and sexually disfigured. Read More

The Role of Ovarian Hormones and the Medial Amygdala in Sexual Motivation.

Curr Sex Health Rep 2017 Dec 16;9(4):262-270. Epub 2017 Oct 16.

Department of Pharmacology, University of Maryland, School of Medicine, 685 W. Baltimore Street, HSF 1 580-1, Baltimore, MD 21201.

Purpose: Although research into the neurobiology of sexual desire in women is active, relatively little is understood about the origins of sexual motivation in women. The purpose of our review is to discuss factors that influence a central sexual motivate state and generalized arousal as potential drivers of sexual motivation in women and female rats.

Recent Findings: Sexual motivation is the product of interactions of the central motive state and salient sexually-relevant cues. Read More

Brain Imaging of Human Sexual Response: Recent Developments and Future Directions.

Curr Sex Health Rep 2017 23;9(4):183-191. Epub 2017 Oct 23.

Department of Neuroscience (Section Anatomy), University Medical Center Groningen, University of Groningen, Antonius Deusinglaan 1, Box 196, 9700 AD Groningen, The Netherlands.

Purpose Of Review: The purpose of this study is to provide a comprehensive summary of the latest developments in the experimental brain study of human sexuality, focusing on brain connectivity during the sexual response.

Recent Findings: Stable patterns of brain activation have been established for different phases of the sexual response, especially with regard to the wanting phase, and changes in these patterns can be linked to sexual response variations, including sexual dysfunctions. From this solid basis, connectivity studies of the human sexual response have begun to add a deeper understanding of the brain network function and structure involved. Read More

Internet-Based Interventions for Women's Sexual Dysfunction.

Curr Sex Health Rep 2016;8:136-143. Epub 2016 Jun 30.

Open Universiteit, Faculty of Psychology and Educational Science, Heerlen, The Netherlands.

The present paper gives an overview of the methodology and results of the first decade of research into Internet-based interventions for women's sexual dysfunction. The interventions, retrieved in a literature search, were mostly well grounded on common theoretical models of sexual dysfunction and psychological disorders, and most ingredients of the interventions were theory-informed. Most interventions offered Web-based therapeutic content within a more or less preprogrammed structure. Read More

PEYRONIE'S DISEASE: A REVIEW OF ETIOLOGY, DIAGNOSIS, AND MANAGEMENT.

Curr Sex Health Rep 2015 Jun;7(2):117-131

Scott Department of Urology, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX ; Center for Reproductive Medicine, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX.

Peyronie's Disease (PD) is a superficial fibrosing disorder of the penis resulting in plaque formation and penile deformity. Once considered rare, PD has more recently been found in up to 13% of men, and can negatively affect sexual and psychosocial function of both patients and their partners. While the etiology of PD is unclear, it is thought to result from an inciting traumatic event followed by aberrant fibrosis or dysregulated wound healing. Read More

Current Diagnosis and Management of Erectile Dysfunction.

Curr Sex Health Rep 2014 Sep;6(3):164-176

Scott Department of Urology, Baylor College of Medicine, 7200 Cambridge St, 10th Floor, A10.131, Houston, TX, USA.

Erectile dysfunction (ED) affects a growing number of men in the USA and abroad, with significant impacts on sexual function and overall quality of life. The risk factors for ED are numerous and include a strong link to cardiovascular disease, such that men with ED should be screened for cardiovascular disease. The evaluation of men presenting with ED includes a comprehensive history and physical exam to aid in the identification of comorbidities as well as laboratory testing to evaluate hormone and lipid levels and sugar metabolism.

The implications of low testosterone on mortality in men.

Authors:
Molly M Shores

Curr Sex Health Rep 2014 Dec;6(4):235-243

VA Puget Sound Health Care System, Seattle, WA ; Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, University of Washington, Seattle, WA.

Testosterone levels in men slowly decline with aging and also decline more abruptly due to medical illness or medications. Prescriptions for testosterone have increased dramatically over the past decade, since a testosterone-gel formulation was approved and since numerous studies reported an association between low serum testosterone and increased mortality. However, recent observational studies of testosterone treatment have reported conflicting results with some studies reporting decreased risks for mortality while others reported increased mortality risks with testosterone treatment.
