Why is it important?
Masters and Johnson (1966) introduced a model of four stages of sexual response including excitement, plateau, orgasm, and resolution. Th e model provides a basis for international diagnostic systems such as DSM-IV and DSM-V (American Psychiatric Association 1994, 2013) and ICD-10 (World Health Organization 1992). Although these diagnostic systems are different, they are common in the two following characteristics: 1- Female sexual dysfunctions are classified into three broad categories of disorders in sexual interest/arousal, female orgasmic disorder and genito-pelvic pain/penetration disorders, and 2- experience of sexually related personal distress has been emphasized as one of the necessary diagnostic criteria. Th is means that female sexual dysfunction (FSD) is diagnosed only when both criteria of low sexual function and sexual distress are present.
