Male Orgasmic Disorder

Male orgasmic disorder is the persistent delay or inability to reach orgasm during sexual intercourse. Primary anorgasmia refers to the condition of having never experienced orgasm while secondary anorgasmia refers to having previously had orgasms but has lost the ability to have it despite adequate sexual stimulation. The causes include medical conditions such as multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury complications, diabetic neuropathy (hyperlink), and hormonal imbalances. Moreover, it may be due to the side effects of medications such as antidepressants. It may also be caused by psychological conditions such as anxiety, trauma, and depression.

Male orgasmic disorder was included in DSM IV-TR but it is no longer in DSM 5. The male-related conditions under the current DSM’s sexual dysfunctions are Delayed Ejaculation and Erectile Disorder.
