Aim. To compare the prevalence of HSDD among SM women in France, Germany, Italy, and the UK, as well as the relationship between low sexual desire and sexual activity or behavior and sexual or partner relationship satisfaction.
Conclusions. A similar percentage of SM women with low sexual desire were found across countries suggesting the role of biological factors (i.e., losing ovarian hormones) in determining sexual desire. Differences in the percentage of SM women with HSDD suggest a role for cultural factors in determining how low sexual desire is perceived.
