At least one in 10 of UK 16 to 21 year-olds questioned in a survey admits to having a “distressing sexual problem” in the past year. A lack of education around “issues of sexual satisfaction” is one of the causes, according to researchers. They analysed data from 1,875 sexually active and 517 sexually inactive people aged 16 to 21. Climaxing, erectile dysfunction and lack of interest in sex are some of the main issues. The findings have been published in the Journal of Adolescent Health and the analysis is described as the “largest scientific study” of sexual health lifestyles in Britain. It concluded that around one in 10 men and one in eight women aged 16 to 21 in Britain who are sexually active have experienced a “distressing” sexual problem lasting at least three months in the past year. Among women, the most common problem reported was difficulty reaching a climax.
