Hear Dr. Irwin Goldstein answer the question, "How Can Partners Help Each Other In Their Overall Sexual Health?" Dr. Goldstein has authored more than 325 publications in the field of sexual dysfunction, with 20 consecutive years of funding by the National Institutes of Health in this area. He is Editor-in Chief of The Journal of Sexual Medicine, the official journal of the International Society for Sexual Medicine.

Dr. Goldstein:
A partner is very important to you, assuming the woman has a partner, and fortunately or unfortunately often many women are without sexual partners, but assuming there is a partner, sexual experience is a couple’s experience. Sexual successes are shared, sexual problems are shared, and even finally sexual solutions are shared.

It’s very interesting that when you do data on or examine women who have low interest, far more important to their low interest is their partner’s quality of erection. A man who has early ejaculation, a man who has a soft penis, a man who doesn’t have really good quality sexual attributes is one of the leading causes for women saying, "Jeez, I am not that interested."

So partner function is very important. If a man has an erection problem and let's say takes a Viagra or Viagra-like product, it's very common for women who never took the drug to actually have better sexual function, sort of interesting how you can improve someone’s function without treating them.

So sexual problems are shared, sexual solutions are shared, sexual successes are shared. One of the best parts of the field is that it’s a couple’s situation.
