Sexual relationships are central to the lives of most of us. The sexual component of those relationships can go wrong in various ways. This may be secondary to other difficulties in the relationship, mental health problems, specific sexual vulnerabilities of the individual, or the impact of disease or medication on sexual response. This chapter will describe the more common sexual problems and their prevalence. Evidence related to aetiology of sexual problems and treatment evaluation will be briefly reviewed. In the final section of the chapter, guidelines for the assessment and practical management of sexual problems will be presented.
