The Impact Erectile Dysfunction has on Women’s Sexual Life:
Marie Chevret, Eric Jaudinot, Kate Sullivan, Alexia Marrel, and Anne S. De Gendre
Lyon, France

Women frequently encounter sexual partners who are suffering with erectile dysfunction. This is a sexual dysfunction suffered by men that is characterized by the inability to develop an erection while engaging in sexual activities. Impact of Erectile Dysfunction (ED) on Sexual Life of Female Partners: Assessment with the
Index of Sexual Life (ISL) Questionnaire, is a research article done by (*WHO? LIST THE RESEARCHERS) researchers at Lyon (*LYON WHAT? Lyon University? Lyon Research Center?) in France who set out to measure the impact erectile dysfunction has on women’s sexual satisfaction. According to Chevret et al. (2004), “It has been estimated that 1 in 10 men worldwide have ED and that it is the most common chronic medical disorder in men older than 40 years. ED has been shown to negatively impact self-esteem, quality of life, and satisfaction, and to increase depression and mental disease” (p. 157). Not only does this ailment affect men, but it also plays a beneficial role in how their sexual partners feel. Chevret et al. hypothesizes that erectile dysfunction has a negative impact on female sexual satisfaction and feminine sexual drives. The hypothesis was created because men who cannot get an erection will not be able to participate in sexual intercourse; therefore, also unable be satisfy their woman. This study is important because only a very small amount of research has been done that focuses on the affects erectile dysfunction has on women. Other research relating to the topic of ER directly focuses on the male’s perspective since this disorder is targeted to the interest and inquiries of men. Found within the results of the article lies a conducted questionnaire through the Index of…...

Human Trafficking and Sex Trade: Uae

...Research Paper on Human Trafficking and Sex Trade in the UAE ABSTRACT: Human trafficking, which relates to the treatment of people through the use of deception, force or coercion or other means to transport them across different borders worldwide and within countries, has attracted a lot of attention (Godziack & Bump,2008).This is so because the plight of women and children who are exploited for both labour and sex, has been brought to the attention of governments and international bodies such as the United Nations. Though human trafficking is not confined only to women and children, but includes men as well (for labour), it is the use and abuse of women and children for sexual activities that has received new focus. This has also been the case in the UAE. The country has been criticized for being lax in curbing or preventing this activity. This resulted in action on the part of the UAE government. The scope of this paper is to look at human trafficking in the UAE and the actions taken to stop it and prosecute the perpetrators of it. Definition and Background to Human Trafficking: In today’s world many people see and refer to human trafficking as the “ new slave trade”. Though human trafficking is seen and described as a new phenomenon, it is actually very old. It has existed for thousands of years, but just in another form and name, namely that of slavery. This leads to a comparison between the old and the new. In the modern setting of today’s world,......

Sex Ed

...Abstinence-Only vs. Comprehensive Sex Education Which is the Right Choice? Allysa Lekas English 401 Professor Kramer December 11, 2012 Abstinence-Only vs. Comprehensive Sex Education The appropriate type of sex education that should be taught in United States public schools continues to be a major topic of debate, which is motivated by high teen pregnancy and birth rates in the United States compared to other countries. This debate is centered on whether abstinence-only or comprehensive sex education should be taught in public schools. Some argue that sex education, that covers safe sexual practices, such as condom use, sends a mixed message to students, and actually promotes sexual activity. The United States government used to promote abstinence-only initiatives through the Adolescents Family Life Act. It cost 176 million dollars annually to fund abstinence-only programs. The central message of these programs was to delay sexual activity until marriage, and cannot include information about contraception and condoms (Stranger-Hall & Hall, 2011). It has been proven that abstinence-only education does not have an effect on the birth rates in the United States, but comprehensive sex education has. Teaching students to not only about abstinence, but about contraceptive use and information about sexually transmitted diseases, has decreased the birth rates in the United States as well as the contraction rate of sexually transmitted diseases. Comprehensive sex......

History of Sex

...reproduction in eukaryotes first appeared about a billion years ago and evolved within ancestral single-celled eukaryotes.[2] The reason for the initial evolution of sex, and the reason(s) it has survived to the present, are still matters of debate. Some of the many plausible theories include: that sex creates variation among offspring, sex helps in the spread of advantageous traits, that sex helps in the removal of disadvantageous traits, and that sex evolved as an adaptation for repairing damages in DNA (see Evolution of sexual reproduction). While there are a number of theories, there are two main alternative views on the evolutionary origin and adaptive significance of sex. The first view assumes that sexual reproduction is a process specific to eukaryotes, organisms whose cells contain a nucleus and mitochondria. In addition to sex in animals, plants, and fungi, there are other eukaryotes (e.g. the malaria parasite) that also engage in sexual reproduction. On this first view, the adaptive advantage that maintains sexual reproduction (in competition with asexual modes of reproduction) is the benefit of generating genetic variation among progeny. Furthermore, on this view, sex originated in a eukaryotic lineage. The earliest eukaryotes and the bacterial ancestors from which they arose are assumed to have lacked sex. For instance, some bacteria use conjugation to transfer genetic material between cells; and while not the same as sexual reproduction, this also results in......

Sex Education

...Sex education is a broad term used to describe education about human sexual anatomy, sexual reproduction, sexual intercourse, and other aspects of human sexual behavior. Although some form of sex education is part of the curriculum in some schools around the country, it remains a controversial issue in many areas. More than half of parents do not think sex education should be taught to children at school, according to a new survey. Many think it is inappropriate to teach children about sex, while others think it should be a parents' choice to inform their own child, according to a poll by baby product website The survey, which questioned more than 1,700 parents of children aged five to fifteen, found that fifty nine per cent do not agree with the fact that sex education is often taught to children in schools. Given the state of clothing, television, music, video games and other social media, a wise parent would be on constant alert for opportunities to assess their child for signs that wisdom about anything sexual is in need of being dispensed and then they would dispense it. But many aren’t, and many don’t. It is adults who are uncomfortable with sex, and this discomfort is a big part of the reason why children need sex education in schools. Adults are failing in their job to inform their kids in a timely manner. Kids are sexual beings from the moment they are conceived. Pretending that they don’t need to know anything about even the most basic sexual......

Premarital Sex

...Premarital sex refers to sexual relations between two people prior to marrying to each other. There is a common question among teens and engaged couples that "is it okay to have premarital sex?". Morality is a factor for many people when deciding whether or not to have premarital sex. Nowadays, some columnist in the newspaper writes an editorial bemoaning the problem of unwed parenthood. There are few that have dealt solely with the attitudes of society on premarital sexual practices. Ira Reiss has been the major figure in the development of a sociological analysis of premarital sex through his conceptualization and research efforts (Bell 1966). The percentage of women having premarital sex has exceeded 80% since the late 1970. There is a significant difference in the attitudes about premarital sex between students, college age, 18-25 and the previous generation, 38-45. It also looked at the differences of males and females of both age groups and compared their attitudes. Furthermore, sex outside of wedlock is not a new phenomenon. Certainly there is a tendency among many to think that things are worse than they are and always getting worse. The statistic confirmed that things are out of control now. In the 1960s, 25 percent of young men and 45 percent of young women were virgins at age 19 by the 1980s, fewer than 20 percent of males and females were. The vast majority of people are having sexual intercourse before marriage. Thus, although along with the teenage drop in......

Human Sex Trafficking

...Human Sex Trafficking Alia Abutaa BSHS/302 July 26, 2010 Anie Sklar What can be worse than not knowing what has happened to a loved one that has disappeared? One minute they are beside you and the next they are gone hoping that they will be returned soon unharmed. Waiting for some sort of news is the hardest as unimaginable thoughts race around one’s mind. Unfortunately for many the wait can go on for years and more than likely forever. In many countries human sex trafficking has become today’s version of slavery. Victims include male and female, but mostly wanted are young girls under the age of 18 (Martin, 2007). What can be thought of vacation time when visiting other countries can often times lead to a nightmare and another scenario might be that parents who are in need of money will end up selling their children into sex slavery in exchange for cash. Perpetrators on the hunt know exactly how to approach would be victims with the right things to say on to lure them in without suspicion. As human service professionals try to gain awareness with the predicament, they find that there are some officials who would rather pretend that they care when in reality they benefit from the sex trafficking. There are different scenarios as to how a person becomes a victim. “They are recruited into prostitution, often using tactics involving force, fraud, or coercion (Pakistan Journal, 2009).” Some victims are kidnapped which is better known as smuggling a person from...

Same-Sex Marriage Rights Are Human Rights

...why we as human beings must now come to terms with our ever changing environment and no longer deny this fundamental right to gay couples around the world. Allowing two consenting adults to commit to each other should not be restricted to an exclusive group but available to all because we are created equal. The biggest reason, in my opinion, that gay marriage has come to the forefront of debate is because we are moving towards a free world where everyone can live the life they choose. In today's environment one can travel to many countries around the world and not be shunned for being gay. What this is doing is lowering the stigma of being gay and is allowing gay people to not hide who they are. Because of this the conservative opposition is starting to push back and it has erupted into a worldwide debate of morals. Unfortunately these morals are so different between the two parties that there is no way to convince the opposing sides to listen to each other. The gay community is in a legal purgatory in a sense. They are protected from discrimination as a protected class but they aren't allowed the right to marry. Denying individuals to marry who they want is a violation of the individual's religious freedoms. In the United States the first amendment of the constitution says that the government will make no law that prohibits the free exercise of religion. Which is exactly what they did with the passage of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). DOMA said that same sex......

Human Sex Trafficking

...major role in constructing and maintaining sex trafficking as a social problem. Although, the United States has been less visible as a site of transnational and domestic trafficking in women than other countries, this situation is beginning to change. Recent accounts about human and sex trafficking in the United States, mainly appearing in national and local media, indicates that trafficking for commercial sexual exploitation is a national problem; and one that is increasing in scope and magnitude. The U.S. government estimates that 50,000 women and children are trafficked each year into the United States, primarily from other countries. However, little research has been completed on contemporary trafficking in the United States. Women and children have been the target of sex trafficking for thousands of years. This practice, going on throughout the centuries, finally became a political issue in the early 1900s. In 1902, the International Agreement for the Suppression of the White Slave Traffic was drafted. Its purpose was to "prevent the procuration of women and girls for immoral purposes abroad" ( After a few years it was ratified by twelve countries around the world. This eventually led to the United States passing the Mann Act of 1910 which "forbids transporting a person across state or international lines for prostitution or other immoral purposes" ( With the problem of sex trafficking still growing in the......

Human Sex Trafficking

...Until recently, in the US, the thought of Human Sex Trafficking never occurred to Americans. Human sex trafficking is an illegal activity. This involves selling, buying and trading of people. They are transported away from their families and communities and are forced to work against their own will. People are trafficked both between countries and within the borders of a state. It is also known as modern slavery and a form of sexual exploitation; where women’s, girls and children’s are forced to enter in the world of prostitution. People do this to make money, for some people it’s a business a way to make profit. 27 million people all over the world are currently being forced into human sex trafficking, 1 million children will be exploited by the commercial sex trade each year (Buzzle). The purpose of this paper is to inform the audience about the crime of human sex trafficking. What is the background on human sex trafficking?

Premarital Sex

...Premarital Sex Most people don’t consider the emotional effects of premarital sex. “A study conducted by the University of the Philippines Population Institute in the year 2000 showed that 23 percent of 16.5 million Filipinos aged between 15 and 24 have engaged in premarital sex.” Comparing the teenagers today from the past generations, the teenagers in this generation does not consider virginity or being sexually pure before marriage.

Sex Ed

...Sex Education In Public Schools Sex education in public schools has been a controversial issue in the United States for over a decade. With the HIV and teen pregnancy crises growing, sex education is needed. Some of the American public believe that sex education should be taught at home by the children's parents. They feel that sex education programs in schools do not put an emphasis on abstinence and encourages children to have sexual intercourse. American culture is very sexually oriented. Sex can be seen all over the media. Charles Krauthammer stated, "Sex oozes from every pore of the culture and there's not a kid in the world who can avoid it"(Bender). After being faced with sex on an everyday basis, the independent teens of today will make their own decisions on whether or not to have sex. The important thing is to make sure that they know all aspects of it. Reality-based sexuality education gives young people an understanding of positive sexuality. I t also provides sexual health information and skills on decision making (What). Subjects include sexual development, reproduction, relationships, affection, intimacy, body image and gender roles (What). Successful sex education programs have several high points. The high points include exercises to encourage the appraisals of values, and skills in which students are taught how to negotiate while in sexual situations (" What type”) The majority of this nation favors sexuality......

Human Sex Trafficking

...Human Sex Trafficking Human sex trafficking is an illegal form of modern day slavery that has turned into a lucrative business. Sex is very big business and there is a tremendous amount of money that can be made. There are people that will use any means necessary to be a part of this industry. Young women and children are used as a commodity, offered a better life and then sold like property to increase the wallets of these criminals. I am against this kind of inhumane treatment and believe that we, as a nation, need to do more to abolish this so called “business” forever. I know that we don’t have laws against human sex trafficking in every state yet, but the ones that we do have are a great start. I believe that with more laws, stronger penalties for breaking those laws, and awareness that this is a very big and rapidly growing problem, it is possible. These girls are not inventory, they are humans. As a nation we need to make this part of our history, what used to be, not what is today. A promise of a better life is one way the victims are captured; they are also obtained through much more sinister ways. They are often sold to the traffickers by their parents, husbands or boyfriends. However, there are some who have been out right kidnapped. These young girls are then forced to become sex slaves for money that they never receive. These victims are subjected to cruel and inhumane treatment. They suffer at the hands of their captors on a daily basis to insure......

Why Sex

...Kenny Malki Biology March 22, 2010 Why Sex Sex plays an extremely intricate part in the past, present and future. Dating back to millions of years ago procreation has been a staple in the evolution of both human as well as non-human life. With-out procreation seemingly all things would not exist. Thinking back millions of years ago, it has been said that humans have evolved from animals. These animals did not just spring and grow from the ground like a weed. Rather they procreated; engaging in sexual intercourse and ultimately creating a new life. Since all things eventually come full circle, through procreation we humans have developed into what we are today. Forever keeping in mind that even today and for all eternity we humans will always be evolving. Depending on where in the world a person is an inhabitant from they will ultimately have physical character traits which distinguish them from aliens of that nation. This can easily be seen if one were to look at pictures of different people from different nations. Some examples of this might be hair color, eye color, bone structure, stature, skin color and the list rolls on. Putting the historical aspect of sex aside, sex makes the world go around. Sex is driven by the media and the media drives sex to the heights in which instill its power. People dress sexy, can be said to have sex appeal, are sexist, stereotypes though sex and gender, etc. Point blank sex drives people to strive to make more money, hold more......

Theology of Sex

...participate in the act of sexual intercourse. However, the concept of their sex was more than just the act but also their being created together out of one and as one. After reading through this story and several other references I’ve come to the conclusion that sex is NOT intercourse but an expression of relationship. Brueggemann supports this noting that the Old Testament considers “sexual relations [as] the most intimate, treasured, costly, and demanding of all relationships.” (194) Sex is an expression of love, and love is the root of any relationship. When sex becomes removed from love, a relationship becomes diminished. My exploration into sex has resulted in me seeking an understanding of right relationship, knowing how sex fits into it. Our being image-bearers of God was a striking feature as I started my research and what it implies for our “sexuality”. In the Dictionary of Biblical Imagery, the topic of sex opens with a comparison of the Creation narrative with the stories of Near Eastern Literature. Near Eastern Lit would explain the creation of the gods and that from their procreation the birth of humanity and the world came forth. It is simply that humans and all that they are is a result of the gods, or products of them. So it could be implied that “sexual activity of human beings, then, is simply an earthly reflection of what takes place in the divine realm.” (776) Our act of sex would be then to the Egyptians a very spiritual act that would connect......
