Example text

Thus women live more easily without sexual activity, think less about it and are much more readily deterred from it. Husbands who are hurt by their wive's apparent lack of mutual concern must be consoled by generalisations. The use of the term "frigidity" as it is applied to women's disorders seems to require discussion. Some authorities use 42 COMMON DISORDERS IN W O M E N 43 this term to describe any woman who is unable to obtain orgasm, no matter how ardent her sexual feeling may be. Applying the word in this way seems calculated to confuse patients and doctors, and I have known it also to cause great offence, the woman feeling that such capacity that she had was being quite belittled.

When women make such complaints, it is difficult to give more than general advice. Naturally, a wise husband is restrained in his demands at such a time; obviously contraception should be dependable and lubrication should be freely used. A n y glandular deficiency of thyroid or oestrogen should be made good. Often it seems best for the wife to make no attempts to get a personal response, she need aim only at being intimate and receptive. Although, nowadays, it seems fashionable to consider the wife's eagerness for intercourse as a sine qua non, I should not myself at all agree with this, and should never give such advice to a woman thus troubled.

Although a brief discussion of childhood circumstances can sometimes give a little indication, it is seldom possible in an ordinary medical consultation to search back into possible causes. Before describing in detail the common sexual disorders, it is important to emphasise that the type of personality found associated with a sexual handicap varies enormously, and may be of far greater significance in the marriage than the presence of the disorder itself. Thus a person can have a profound disability yet retain a most normal attitude towards sexuality, and in such a case the other partner may find adjustment by no means too difficult.
