What do you mean by sexual dysfunction, sexual problem or sexual disorder? 

Sexual response is a true psycho physiological experience which has four phases called desire, excitement, plateau, orgasm, and resolution. Any problem occurring at any phase of sexual response cycle can lead to sexual dysfunction. A sexual problem or sexual dysfunction refers to any problem during any stage of the sexual response cycle that prevents the individual or couple from engaging in a successful sexual intercourse and experiencing full satisfaction from the sexual activity. In other words sexual dysfunction or sexual problem is a person’s inability to participate in a sexual relationship as he or she would wish.

Based on the sexual response cycle sexual problems can be broadly categorized into sexual desire disorders, sexual arousal disorders and orgasm disorders.
