  • J. D. Richardson
Conference paper


This paper reviews 215 consecutive male patients seen over a period of 7 months, from July 1986 to February 1987, by a medically qualified sex therapist, working in solo private practice in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Those presenting with erectile incompetence (impotence) are compared with patients presenting with other problems. The age distribution between the two groups is compared, as are religious affiliation, country of birth, marital status, referral source, and diagnosis, together with alcohol and smoking habits, and the results of pathology and blood flow investigations performed.
