    AUTHORS: Roohallah Bay, Shaiful Bahari Ismail, Fatemeh Bay

    ABSTRACT: Objective: Hypoactive Sexual Desire is characterized as a lack or absence of sexual fantasies and desire for sexual activity. The current study examines the effects of psycho-physiological therapy (stretch therapy combined with breathing exercise) on the sexual desire among heterosexual men. Methods: We used “convenience sampling” for this research; 80 people were recruited. For collection of data, we used an identical quasi-experimental design called “nonequivalent control group.” Therapy sessions each lasting (20) 90 to 120 min were carried out on 3 alternate days of week. The volunteers have been selected from heterosexual men with stable relationship, those who married minimum of 6 months, within 20 to 55 years old, who attended to HUSM Family Clinic. Pre-tests, post-tests, and follow-up tests were conducted in a HUSM clinic (Malaysia). For assessment we used Hurlbert Index of Sexual Desire (HISD). Results: The psycho-physiological group had better post-test scores compared to the control group. Also follow-up test scores were marginally better compared to the control group, but this difference did not reach statistical significance. Also age and education level of participants didn’t have any significant effect on this intervention. Conclusion: Psycho-physiological combined therapy including stretching and breathing exercise appears to result in better improvement in sexual desire compared to control group but this improvement is not great. It increases sexual desire of heterosexual men, whenever people follow the therapy.
