This article is dedicated to the subject of eating disorders in the context of sexual development of women in adolescence and early adulthood. Epidemiological and symptomatological data on eating disorders have been reviewed and results of empirical studies on sexuality of females with eating disorders as well as several theoretical concepts dedicated to these disorders have been analysed. The results of our own study including 73 females with eating disorders have also been presented. Methods used in the study: Life Check List, and Sentence Completion Test (SCT), a Self-rating Scale on Eating Disorders (FSE). The results suggest comorbidity of eating disorders and negative attitude towards both sexuality and males neglecting sexual behaviour.
