Health, sexual health, sexual satisfaction, and sexual functioning are closely related concepts. The World Health Organization defines sexual health as a state of physical, emotional, mental, and social well-being in relation to sexuality, which implies pleasant and safe sexual experiences. Thus, sexual health is closely related to sexual satisfaction. A dimension of sexuality clearly associated with sexual satisfaction is sexual functioning: desire, arousal, and orgasm are concepts linked to the concept of sexual satisfaction. At present, sexual satisfaction is considered a relevant factor in people's quality of life. Improving health and quality of life requires research in fields such as sexual function and satisfaction.
For this Special Issue, we encourage researchers in human sexuality to submit manuscripts on sexual functioning, sexual satisfaction, and the relationships of this factors with health. Studies on sexual desire, sexual arousal, orgasm, and sexual satisfaction are of interest, as are those on sexual diversity or in populations of different ages (young people, adults, or the elderly), as well as studies that present instruments for assessing sexual functioning and satisfaction. Presentations can be in the form of original articles, brief reports, or critical reviews (systematic reviews and meta-analyses).
