Third more men admit to losing sex drive

The number of men with low sex drive has grown 32% in a decade, a new study found.

The study found that while fewer men now complain of erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation, more men, especially younger ones, complain of low sex drive and penile curvature, known as Peyronie’s disease.

“Over the 10 year period, we have seen a real change for men when they visit sexual health clinics,” said lead author Paolo Capogrosso of the San Raffaele Hospital in Milan.

“This is probably due not to the growth of problems, but to greater openness – men are increasingly recognizing that many sexual problems can be treated, and are no longer hiding their difficulties,” said the urologist.

The results are published in the International Journal of Impotence Research.
