Rabii Redouane, Balar Khalid
Addiction to mobile phones has become a social scourge since the widespread use of smartphones. If anxiety, depression and insomnia are described consequences of overuse of screens. What would be the effects of the latter on the sexual health and erectile function of the exposed subjects? Can we consider the manipulation of smartphones in bedrooms in couples as a risk factor for sexual dysfunction? This is a study conducted by the Urology Service and the sexual health center of the Cheikh Khalifa Hospital in Casablanca, the aim of which is to establish the cause and effect relationship between the excessive use of smartphones and sexual disorders. This study targeted the population of the city of Casablanca, represented by a sample of 600 people, whose choice was made at random. Only married subjects were included in the study, 452 people including (240Men / 212Women) The survey was conducted in the form of a questionnaire administered electronically. The collection of responses lasted four weeks. Our results showed that 50.5% are not satisfied with their sexuality, 11.5% of those surveyed report severe erectile dysfunction,35% suffer from low libido, 20.4% have premature ejaculation and 20% of women have dyspareunia. Also our results showed that 82.9% of patients with sexual disorders use smartphones as well as other electronic products simultaneously, 12.5% of people who use multiple electronic products at the same time suffer from erectile dysfunction and only 14% of patients with erectile dysfunction link their disorder to excessive use of smartphones. Detailed analysis of the responses showed an increase in the incidence of sexual dysfunction, more precisely with the age group ranging from 20 to 45 years. This prevalence is particularly high in subjects using several electronic products at the same time. The rate of sexual disorders is particularly high among couples using smartphones in the bedroom. So smartphones constitute a risk factor for sexual disorders and aggravating factor.
