Abstract
Purpose: Desire or libido issues are often discussed in a female perspective. The aim of this study was to assess the characteristics ofboth young males and females who reported poor sexual desire.
Methods: Data were drawn from the Swiss national survey on youth sexual behavior carried out in 2017. Out of 5175 participants (49.0%females; mean age 26.3) who completed the questionnaire, 5124(99.0%; 48.9% females; mean age 26.3) answered a question about current sexual desire (“In the last 4 weeks, how would you rate your level of sexual desire or interest?”). Answers ranging from inexistent or very poor to very high were dichotomized into POOR (inexistent orvery poor, poor) and NoPOOR (medium, high, very high). We compared both groups on sociodemographic status, education (ter-tiary/other), residence (urban/rural), social life and financial satisfaction, sexual orientation (heterosexual / non-heterosexual), current mental health (poor / good), partner-related and pornography experience variables. For the partner-related variables, we assessed the current relationship status (none / yes [casual or stable]) and current sexual life satisfaction (unsatisfied / other). We asked participants if they had ever watched pornography and we dichotomized the answers into yes (once, several times) and no (never). We first ran a bivariate analysis and all significant variables (p<.05) were included in a logistic regression using the NoPOOR group as the reference category. Results are presented as odds ratios (OR). We compared the groups separately by gender.
