If you were counseling individuals with chronic illnesses, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and arthritis, what would you tell them about sexuality? What would you tell their partners?
Discuss the differences among disorders, dissatisfactions, and dysfunctions. When does lack of erection or orgasm become defined as a sexual dysfunction? What are the criteria for defining difficulties as disorders or dysfunctions? Is the decision culturally relative?
