Bed problems of Poles

The report on sexuality of Poles in 2017 presents data indicating that sexual activity in Poland is declining and that almost half of active people are not satisfied with their sexual life. The most common causes of lower sexual activity are lack of time, stress and fatigue. According to research, 86% of Poles declared their activity in 1997, now it is 76%.

Unfortunately, only 42% of Poles declare full satisfaction with their sexual life. Most of the people who belong to this group are in the age range from 30 to 49 years old. These studies also showed tendencies to lower the age of first sexual initiation, which was highlighted more in the case of women. The average age is about 18 years.

Bedside difficulties

The report presents the following data: men are more satisfied with sex life, but women are more likely to seek the help of sexologists and are not afraid to talk about bed problems. Okay, okay, okay, okay, okay. 40% of adult Poles claim that sex plays an important role in their lives. Moreover, it has been noted that bed problems are often due to the very nature of the sex issue, which is particularly evident between generations.

According to sexologists, there is still a fear of visiting a sexologist or gynaecologist in Poland. Bed problems affect not only women, but also every tenth Pole. Worryingly, only half of them are undergoing treatment. The first symptoms of impotence disorder or lack of desire for intercourse often indicate serious diseases about which the patient has no idea.

Sexual Disorders

Worldwide reports indicate that about 45-50% of the female population and about 30% of the male population have disorders. These numbers may vary slightly depending on the research carried out, but the scale of the problem is still significant. Last but not least, as we grow older, the lack of satisfaction with intercourse deepens and the scale increases significantly. According to the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Health Problems, male dysfunctions concern disorders of desire, phase of excitement, orgasm and ejaculation, as well as pain sensations during intercourse.

According to sexologists, bed problems for men are a source of shame, which contributes to lowering self-esteem. The most common disorders are associated with erection and achievement of full satisfaction with intercourse. These complications may affect any man, but in older people, abnormalities may be associated with co-morbidities. In younger men, these problems are psychological in nature. In the case of both physical and mental disorders, it is necessary to visit a specialist.
