A survey of 1500 Europeans aged 40-80 found that 69% of men and 56% of women reported having sexual intercourse during the past year. The most common male sexual problems, i.e. early ejaculation (20%) and erectile dysfunction (18%), were more common in the UK than in other European countries. The most common female sexual problems, i.e. a lack of sexual interest (34%) and a lack of pleasure in sex (25%), were also more common in the UK than in other European countries. Only 26% of men and 17% of women had discussed their sexual problems with a doctor.
