Abstract

Results are described of a pilot study of the efficacy of sex therapy through the Internet for thirty-nine men with erectile dysfunction or rapid ejaculation. Treatment consisted of sex therapy (Masters & Johnson, 1970), bad a duration of three months, and was conducted entirely through e-mail. Forty-six percent of the participants dropped out. Fourteen (67%) participants reported an improvement of their sexual functioning. Seven (47%) participants reported the improvement had sustained one month after termination, eight (53%) participants reported no further change. We conclude that sex therapy through the Internet may yield positive results and that further controlled studies are warranted.
