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 ▲]

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 technical possibility of surgical sex change has opened up a debate concerning the legitimacy and utility of carrying out such an intervention at the request of the transsexual. Diagnostic, psychological, medical and ethical arguments have been brought forth, both for and against. Nonetheless, anatomical transformation by surgical means has currently become a practice as the frequency of serious gender identity disorders is constantly progressing. After a brief introduction, the present paper will consider typological, aetiological and epidemiological aspects of transsexualism. Treatment of the sex change applicant is then defined and discussed in terms of psychological, psychiatric, endocrinological and surgical aspects. Finally, the question of post-operation follow-up will be examined. [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 ▲]

AB Presents 12 various types of responses to the Rorschach that indicate a distinctive connection with reality that seems to resemble the inability of transsexuals to resign themselves as easily to perceived reality as to symbolic satisfactions (desired reality). The authors then compare the frequency of such responses in the Rorschach protocols of transsexuals and control subject in order to test the validity of this hypothesis. The research to be reported here involved an initial sample of 36 transsexuals, 24 men and 12 women (with the designated sex determined by the original anatomical sex). These subjects had consulted a psychologist for an evaluation that was required prior to a medical decision to perform an anatomical sex-change operation. Clinical observation indicates that transsexuals (a) correctly perceive the anatomical reality of their sex; (b) do not modify their conviction (that of belonging to the other sex) in accord with this perception; and (c) seek to resolve the resulting dissonance by changing their anatomy rather than their conviction (gender identity). On the basis of this observation, we have inferred that transsexuals should maintain a characteristic relationship with reality that we have formulated in terms of indices to be identified during Rorschach testing.

Au cours d'une enquête de follow-up réalisée auprès de 25 patients implantés, nous avons constaté, en filigrane des réponses fournies par les sujets, un sentiment de malaise, voire d'humiliation lié à l'usage d'une prothèse pénienne. Chez l'humain, l'érection comporte une valeur symbolique incontestable. Mise à mal par l'impuissance, l'image virile de l'homme ne se restaure pas entièrement avec l'installation d'une prothèse pénienne.Solution artificielle, celle-ci semble laisser subsister chez de nombreux patients des difficultés psychologiques à assumer la perte définitive de leurs capacités naturelles d'érection.

In the population who look advice from our interdisciplinary team, penile prosthesis is estimated been indicated in about 13% of the cases. Among these 13% of patients to whom a penile implant was proposed, only 32% agreed to undergo the operation. From this statement, we wondered why some men require penile implantation and other ones resign. A follow-up survey allowed to compare the experience of 19 implants recipients to the experience of 17 patients who have refused this solution. The cost of the device appears being a very determinant argument in the decision to reject penile implantation. Our study fails to distinguls clearly the two groups of subjects on the basis of another motivation criterion. [less ▲]

Assessed the relationships between hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) activity and memory performance using 16 inpatients (mean age 45.9 yrs) with major depressive syndrome and a memory profile developed by A. Rey (1966). Within 2 wks following hospital admission, HPA assessments (both basal and post dexamethasone suppression test [DST] cortisol levels) and the memory profile were administered. Results suggest that HPA assessments including both basal and post-DST cortisol levels are better correlated with memory processes than isolated post-DST levels. [less ▲]
