Seven percent of women and more than 10 percent of men said they were distressed due to difficulty controlling sexual urges, feelings and behaviors, according to study results published in JAMA Network Open.

“It’s a lot more people than we expected to be having difficulty controlling sexual urges and behaviors and who are feeling distressed and impaired,” said the study’s lead author, Janna Dickenson, of the University of Minnesota Medical School in Minneapolis.

“The differences between the sexes are a lot less than we would have expected, raising concerns that the difficulty in controlling sexual behavior affects more than just men,” she added.
