A leading clinician and researcher in the growing field of sexual medicine explains the connection between a man’s sexual function and overall health—and delivers a 7-step action plan for him to enjoy sexual intimacy over his entire life
As director of the New York Center for Human Sexuality at New York Presbyterian Hospital, Dr. Ridwan Shabsigh treats thousands of patients with sexual dysfunctions. His more than 16 years of practice and trailblazing research at Columbia University have confirmed that health is intimately connected to sexual function and that the only way to treat declines in sexual desire, performance, and satisfaction is within the context of men’s and couples’ health.
Now Dr. Shabsigh brings his expert recommendations to the public in this book. Refusing to accept that sexual dysfunction is the inevitable consequence of aging, he lays out a 7-step program to help all men improve their sexual relations—and their health. The book contains:
• a self-test that assesses the reader’s health, sexual satisfaction, and risk for sexual dysfunction
• information on how medical conditions such as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and depression affect a man’s sex life—and how sexual dysfunction is the first warning sign of serious illness
• recommendations for improving lifestyle choices that cause sexual problems and comprehensive approaches to treating any sexual dysfunction
The result is a book that helps every man achieve a lifetime of better sex and optimum health.
