Several epidemiological studies have shown that the sexual function of woman is affected in multiple domains when they perceive ED in their partner. Aim of this study was to evaluate the association between female sexual function (FSF) and the erectile function (EF) of their male partners. Materials & Methods The study was conducted in 2009-2011 among a convenience sample of the female employees and simultaneously among their male sexual partners. Study packages were distributed in total to 359 couples. The questionnaire for women included the 19-items, Female Sexual Function Index ( FSFI) and for men was composed of 22-items, which included the 15-items, International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF) and questions about demographic data, comorbidities, length of marriage, relationship with the partner and lower urinary tract symptoms, respectively. Results The couples have mean ages of 38.57.5Yr (range 18-70Yr) and 40.36.5Yr (range 23-75Yr) for female and male partners, respectively. The total and domain scores of the FSFI were lower for the female partners of men with ED than for those of men without ED, with effect sizes of =0.02-0.08. After adjustment for female group, nearly all the FSFI and IIEF domains scores correlate significantly to a slights to moderate degree. On the basis of the FSFI and IIEF scores, 39.7 %of the women reported sexual difficulty and 17.5 % of men reported mild to moderate ED. The men with ED were older and more likely to report premature ejaculation, low libido than those without ED. ED of the male partner was still a significant risk factor for FSD as well as for sexual difficulty in the aspects of arousal, orgasm sexual satisfaction and sexual pain (OR=2.7-3.9).
