Sexuality plays an important role in everyone’s lives and, in many ways, for all of society. This is also the reason for the flooding of our daily life with sexual motives through media and marketing. This stands in direct contradiction to the fact that the medical education gained at the university teaches little about sexuality and its dysfunctions despite the fact that physical and psychosocial problems as a result of sexual dysfunctions are found everywhere. They manifest themselves particularly within numerous illnesses or during their therapy or reoccur and present a definite challenge to the patient-doctor relationship, as well as in the depth and modality of communication concerning a broad field within a general practitioner’s and specialist’s medical care.
For this reason, sexual medical education and practical studies must receive adequate attention for the seriousness of the problem. This means that a comprehensive theory is needed as the basis of a holistic therapy in order to be able to integrate sexual medical thought and action in a clinically correct and patient appropriate way in clinical practice.
