Rabat – Forty-six percent of Moroccans are believed to suffer from sexual dysfunction, according to Moroccan professor and sexologist Ahmed El Mansouri.
The professor made his remarks during a symposium held in Marrakech under the theme of “Spousal Rights: Sexual Dysfunctions in Marriage and its Effects.”
El Mansouri, who was quoted by Moroccan newspaper El Massae, said that “46 percent of Moroccans suffer from sexual impotence,” adding that 75 percent of Moroccan women are not satisfied with their husbands’ sexual performance.
Sexual dysfunctions, also referred to as impotence can have serious consequences if left untreated. According to the expert, this issue can cause depression, which might lead to suicide.
El Mansouri said with the presence of medicines, this issue can be easily solved. Sexual dysfunctions can also be treated through surgeries nowadays, added the sexologist.
The professor has also warned women about mocking their husbands for their sexual dysfunction. El Mansouri has also encouraged Moroccans to marry at a young age to avoid the issue of sexual dysfunction.
According to Cleveland Clinic, a multispecialty academic hospital in Ohio, sexual dysfunction is classified in four categories: desire disorders, arousal disorders, orgasm disorders and pain disorders.
The symptoms of sexual dysfunction include erectile dysfunction, retarded ejaculation and early or premature ejaculation. There are several factors that can cause sexual dysfunction, including physical and medical conditions, as well as psychological conditions.
