Female sexual dysfunction can include loss of desire, loss of arousal and problems with orgasm.
Erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation are common male sexual dysfunctions.

New York City sexual therapist Dr Ian Kerner said: ‘For men who I work with who suffer from erectile disorder, smoking pot before they have sex can really help them relax and maintain erection.
