Part of the Perspectives in Sexuality book series (Persp. Sex.)


Hypopituitarism signifies deficient release into the blood stream of one or more of the pituitary hormones. Individuals with this endocrine anomaly are of particular interest to sexology because they provide an opportunity to study the effect of pituitary mediated sex hormone deficiency on psychosexual behavior. The purpose of this paper is to summarize recent findings on the postpuberal psychosexual function of male hypopituitary patients (Money and Clopper, 1975; Clopper, Adelson and Money, 1976; Clopper et al., 1976) .
