  • Aims and Scope

    Aims and Scope


    Current Sexual Health Reports commissions state-of-the art reviews from leading researchers, therapists, and clinicians in the field of sexual medicine. The primary strength of this journal and what makes it unique is its multidisciplinary perspective, which emphasizes a biopsychosocial cultural understanding of sexual health.

    International authorities serve as editorial board members and section editors, and articles from some of the world’s leading urologists, sex therapists, endocrinologists, surgeons, and other renowned experts focus on timely and current reviews of the literature. Reviews and commentaries address a wide-ranging list of subjects that encompass male and female sexual disorders/dysfunction; surgical interventions; medical comorbidities; variations in orientation, identity, addiction, and compulsion; preclinical and psychophysiological aspects of sexual medicine; as well as the hottest current controversies in the field.
