  1. The table shows correlations with IIEF scales, frequency of sexual behaviours, measured attitudes and declared sexual problems. Different numbers of n for particular comparisons mean lack of given answer. Pearson’s r was used for: IIEF scales, sexual initiation age and time needed to ejaculate. Spearman’s rho was used for: frequency of sexual behaviours, attitudes and declared sexual problems. * p < 0.06, ** p < 0.01, *** p < 0.001. None of the correlations passed requirements of Bonferroni correction. In IIEF eight subjects submitted, that they were not sexually active in the past 4 weeks, so only SD was measured for them
  2. IIEF abbreviations: EF erectile function, OF orgasmic function, SD sexual desire, IS intercourse satisfaction, OS overall satisfaction
