Building Bridges: From Research on Sexual Problems to the Promotion of Sexual Health and Rights

Building Bridges: From Research on Sexual Problems to the Promotion of Sexual Health and Rights

In this lecture I will review 25 years of research on psychosocial
determinants of sexual function and dysfunction
in men and women, with particular emphasis in
the role of cognitive and emotional factors. Studies
using survey methods and cross-sectional designs, as
well as longitudinal studies and experimental studies
conducted in the laboratory will be reviewed systematically,
and a summary of the main findings for the
understanding of sexual dysfunction and implications
for the treatment and prevention of sexual problems
will be presented.
Moreover, I will build a bridge between the prevention
of sexual problems and the promotion of sexual
health. I will review existing evidence of the importance
of sexual satisfaction and well-being to promote life satisfaction
and quality of life and reflect on the need to
increase global awareness and acceptance of the benefits
of sexual health and well-being across the world.
