A self-administered questionnaire assessing sexual satisfaction and presence of a number of common sexual problems was developed. Following assessment of reliability and validity, the questionnaire was administered to 142 patients seen in a family medicine center. While 56 percent of patients reported one or more sexual problems, such problems were noted in the medical record in 22 percent of the cases. The nature of many of the problems (ie, techniques of foreplay, fear of pregnancy, and differences in attitudes and expectations between partners) suggests an effective role in treatment for the primary care physician.
