Buried penis (also called concealed or hidden penis) is a condition in which the penis is partially or fully covered by the skin of the scrotum, abdomen, or thighs. Although a buried penis may be (and often is) normal in size, it is hidden under the skin, so it does not fully protrude (stick out) from the body.
Dyspareunia is the medical term for pain during penetrative sexual activity (such as intercourse). It is a condition that generally affects women, and a number of women experience pain with penetration at some point in their lives.
The testicles (or testes) are two small organs that are responsible for making sperm and helping to make the main male sex hormone testosterone. They are held in a bag of skin known as the scrotum behind the penis.
Female sexual arousal disorders affect an individual’s mental or genital arousal response. Sometimes, a woman with a sexual arousal disorder may feel mentally turned on, but her body and genitals cannot respond to sexual stimulation.
Persistent genital arousal disorder/genito-pelvic dysesthesia (PGAD/GPD), originally described as persistent sexual arousal syndrome (PSAS), is a disorder that causes people to have unwanted or disruptive feelings of genital arousal
Peyronie’s Disease is a condition resulting from scar tissue formation on the penis. The scar, which is often referred to as a “plaque,” develops on the sheath surrounding the vascular erectile tissue within the penile shaft. This may result in changes to the shape of the penis such as bending/curvature, narrowing, and penile shortening.
If you’re a man past middle age, there’s a good chance that you have or may develop a condition known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). This noncancerous condition affects about 40% of men in their 50s, 60% of men in their 60s, and more than 80% of men in their 80s.
Hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) refers to person’s chronic or ongoing lack of interest in sex, to the point of personal or relationship distress. HSDD affects both men and women, however it is most common in women.
What is erectile dysfunction (ED)?
Erectile dysfunction (ED) occurs when a consistent inability to get or maintain an erection prevents you from having satisfying sex. A man with ED either loses his erection before intercourse, gets only a partial erection, or gets no erection at all. ED is sometimes called impotence, but the preferred term is ED.
A spinal cord injury (SCI) can have profound effects on a person’s quality of life including fertility and sexual function. Sexuality is an important part of a person’s identity as it relates to self-image and interpersonal relationships. The majority of men with a SCI experience changes in fertility and sexual function due to physical function, sensation, and/or response to stimulation.
Anejaculation is defined as the inability to ejaculate semen; the word itself means “no ejaculation.” With this condition, a man can produce sperm but cannot expel them during normal ejaculation even though he may have normal orgasm sensation. Anorgasmia refers to the lack of orgasm (or sensation of pleasure). Anorgasmia can occur without ejaculation, or occasionally with normal ejaculation. Normal ejaculation without pleasure/orgasm is called “orgasmic anhedonia.”
Retrograde ejaculation occurs when semen goes into the bladder instead of leaving the penis during ejaculation. Retrograde ejaculation isn't harmful but it can impair fertility since it affects the delivery of sperm to the uterus during intercourse.
Cancer treatment has the potential to drastically affect sexual function. This can occur in a number of ways depending on the type of cancer and method of treatment undertaken.
