Distressing sexual problems reported by at least one in ten young people in Britain

Climaxing, erectile dysfunction and lack of interest in sex are main issues, with young people rarely seeking professional help.

Around one in ten young men and one in eight young women in Britain who are sexually active have experienced a distressing sexual problem lasting at least three months in the past year, according to new research published in the Journal of Adolescent Health.

The study showed that very few young people experiencing difficulties had sought professional help about their sex lives. The researchers say that failing to address problems in early adulthood could potentially affect sexual happiness and relationships in the future. The findings come from the third National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles (Natsal-3) – the largest scientific study of sexual health lifestyles in Britain – carried out by the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, UCL and NatCen Social Research.
