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 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 ▲]

A tattoo is a visible, concrete, indelible sign which may be made due to internal and/or external pressures and which will have individual and social consequences. On the individual level stress is especially laid on the role of tattoos in the struggle for identity and to counteract anguish. On the social level emphasis is laid on procedures of stigmatization.

Discusses the description of 95 patients with endogenous depression (ED) and 86 patients with nonendogenous depression (NED) with the 9th edition of the International Classification of Diseases. It is maintained that the multifactorial, comprehensive description of these samples as allowed by the Association of Methodology and Documentation in Psychiatry (AMDP) system scales illustrates similarities and differences: A common pattern characterized by anxiety, depression, retardation, and hostility is apparent; however, Depression and Apathy-Retardation scores are higher in ED, whereas Dramatization and Hostility scores are higher in NED.

Investigated the influence of methodological conditions (i.e., time-blind evaluation, chronological vs random order, and suppression of the time gap between evaluations) on the objectivity and sensibility of quantitative evaluation of psychopathology. Different evaluations of videotaped interviews did not demonstrate systematic effects of these temporal conditions. It is suggested that other variables (monotony, order of sequences, verbal inertia, contingencies) may play a greater role. Within the methodological limits of the present study, the time-blind evaluation was the most sensitive [less ▲]

The authors have elaborated a micro-computerized program which enables --on the basis of the Psychopathology Form (plus optionally the Somatic Form) of the AMDP-System and of an open-language diagnosis and treatment --to print out instantly a semi-standardized letter and a syndromic profile of 10 or 13 factors. This realization is favorably acknowledged by general practitioners and medical inspectors thanks to its speed of transmission, to its brevity and to the clarity of the syndromic reduction of the clinical picture. Other advantages lie in the greater validity of factor scores as compared to items scores, the standardization and readability of the clinical files, and the extension of the AMDP data bank.
