Abstract

The argument is made that human sexual dysfunction is particularly well suited for investigation within the conceptual framework embraced by psychophysiology, due to the unique participation of both physiological and psychological components in the sexual response cycle. The literature relating psychophysiological research to the investigation of sexual dysfunction is reviewed, indicating promising applications in the diagnosis and treatment of some sexual dysfunctions as well as in the evaluation of sex therapy programs and the testing of medical theories about the etiology and maintenance of sexual dysfunctions.
