Concept
Sexual well-being is an important part of overall good health and during recent years, the concern over sexual inadequacy has received increased interest. Millions of people are likely dissatisfied with their current level of sexual function in their personal intimate relationships. An estimated 30 million men in the United States have some degree of diminished sexual function. Men over 65 years of age account for the majority, but the problem has also been found in approximately 5% of men in their 40s. While mostly affecting men, women can also experience disappointment with their current level of sexual function.

Diminished sexual function increases with age, but is not an inevitable consequence of aging.
