A follow-up study conducted among 39 implanted patients and 30 partners shows that subjects' satisfaction towards prosthetic-sexulaity depends on their representation of male erotic value. The less satisfied patients are sensitive to a normative representation that associates erotic value to criteria of "sponataneity", "naturalness", "tall an non-assisted erections". Their main dissatisfaction likely derives from the insufficiency of a prosthetic solution to restore a male self-image based on such criteria. This induces a more important impact on satisfaction rates than do functional problems (e.g. difficulties in manipulating the device, unwanted deflations, uncomfortable sensations). These patients also show an attribution bias consisting in attributing erroneously the same dissatisfaction and negative attitude towards prosthetic sexuality to their partner. Therfore, in addition to surgery, a psychosexual support is necessary to modify erotic representations and to improve the communication between the partners in order to increase sexual satisfaction with prosthesis-assisted sexuality [less ▲]

At the moment, the scientific community recognizes two main treatments of premature ejaculation: (1) the “classical” method elaborated by Masters and Johnson in 1970 and (2) a pharmacological method consisting in using antidepressant drugs, mostly those with a serotoninergic action. Although they are both relatively effective, these methods also have their drawbacks: uncertain theoretical basis, frequently unsuitable application, need for partner’s collaboration, a certain lack of eroticism and frequent relapses for the classical method; strictly symptomatic action and side effects for the pharmacological method. A synthesis of several works throws new light on the causes of premature ejaculation and offers thus a theoretical justification to a set of original therapeutic techniques elaborated by De Carufel (1996) and Desjardins (1985). The particularity of these techniques is that they stress the importance of regulating the sexual arousal in order to increase the ejaculatory latency and to promote a specific behaviour in order to achieve this goal during coitus. Clinical studies conducted over the past few years show that treatments including these techniques are at least as effective as the classical method and are probably able to overcome some of its drawbacks: the regulation techniques seem clearer from a theoretical point of view, easier to apply and more able to work without the partner’s collaboration.

A survey questionnaire completed by 39 users of penile prosthesis shows that complaints related to the size of the implanted penis involve a decrease in satisfaction towards the prosthetic device. However, a reduced penile size is not necessary considered as a problem by all patients. Beyond functional considerations, the disappointment concerning the length of the penis is mostly related to the representation of a virility debased by the notions of artifice and assistance which are associated to the penile implant. Strong correlations are actually reported between a lower satisfaction, complaints related to the length of the implanted penis, feelings of shame, a lower self-esteem due to the idea of an "artificial virility" and a trend to attribute a negative attitude towards penile implant to the partner. On the whole, these variables appear to be the expression of a global castration experience that makes the psychosexual assimilation of the prosthesis rather precarious. This castration experience is derived from a certain representation of male erotic quality which requires long, natural and spontaneous erections. From this point of view, the injurious impact of reduced erections seems inseparable from an injurious representation of prosthetic sexuality globally perceived as a “parodic”, “reduced” virility. It is remarkable that none of these variables correlates with the partners' actual opinions concerning prosthesis and sexuality permitted by penile implant. Parallel questionnaires completed separately by 27 partners show that part of the men's injurious representation partakes of projective mechanisms. Such observations underline the relevance of a psychosexological approach of the couple in addition of the surgical approach. [less ▲]

The implantation of a penile prosthesis frequently results in a reduction of the erectile length compared with natural erections. Some patients complain about this fact and their satisfaction at prosthesis assisted sexuality is significantly diminished. Obviously, the degree of complaint is not proportional to the objective degree of penile reduction. For an objective reality to lead to complaints, subjective criteria of appreciation have to intervene. A survey questionnaire completed by 39 implanted patients and 30 partners shows that complaints about the size of the implanted penis are mostly related to a social representation of sexuality which associates the male erotic value to criteria of erectile length, spontaneity and “naturalness”. This representation also tends to be projected in the partner’s mind, independently of her actual attitudes and feelings. Therefore, the injurious impact of penile reduction on satisfaction at the prosthetic device seems to be inseparable from a global representation of prosthetic sexuality which is experienced as a “parodic”, “reduced” virility. The reduced size of the penis focuses feelings of vexation which cannot be reduced to simple functional considerations, it embodies the painful and complex image of a lost virility. From this point of view, psychosexological counselling would be indicated in order to help some couples to improve their adaptation to penile prosthesis. Moreover, an Attitude scale towards Penile Implant (API) derived from the survey questionnaire might enable the identification of risk-patients. [less ▲]

Mc Cormick and Jordan's Sexual Irrationality Questionnaire (SIQ), elaborated in 1986, has been adapted to the French language and tested on a sample of 165 subjects. The organisation of the sexual rationality-irrationality dimension depends on the gender of the subjects. Among female subjects, it appears mostly as a one-factor variable. Its optimal measure is supplied by the SIQ-R-F scale, a reduced version of the SIQ presenting a better internal consistency. Among male subjects, it rather appears structured in several independent factors. Factor analysis thus allows to distinguish four different patterns of sexual irrationality. Among female subjects, the decisive impact of sexual irrationality lies in an inhibition of sexual interest. Among male subjects, the sexual communication seems to be a vulnerable area of first importance. The external validity test of the SIQ is not very probant. This surely underlines a probable problem in the choice of the criteria as well as the compexity of the relationship between irrational cognitions and clinical data. [less ▲]

Conceiving pedophilic sexuality as a sexuality resulting from a fack of grtifying relationships to adults is an important operational reference for the clinician. In this way, the obstacles to sexual satisfaction with adults can become the privileged target of therapeutic and preventive acts.The narcissic fragility is certainly an obstacle common to almost all the pedophilic patterns. Beyond this common denominator, the individual cases are characterized by strong dissimilarities. The variety of the cases justifies the attempts to classify the different types of pedophiles. But the typological systems are also quite different, depending on the theorical and methodological preferences of their authors. Starting from the ideas of several authors, this article try to sum up the variety of pedophilic functioning in four axes of variation. At last, the article stresses the imortance of contexts of life as factors leading a predisposed personality to transgression [less ▲]
