Erectile dysfunction affects almost all men at one time or another in their lives and effects more than 30 million American men. Women suffer from sexual dysfunction more than men due to differing perceptions of sexual intercourse; about 43% of women in America suffer from female sexual dysfunction. The annual revenue growth since 2007 is 7.8% and projected growth going forward is at 9.2% per year. The Sexual Dysfunction Course has been separated to include men and women as well as the diagnosis, treatments available and standard of care needed.

The worldwide incidence of erectile dysfunction estimated at over 152 million men, with a forecast of 322 million men by the year 2025. About 80% of erectile dysfunction goes unreported while the 52% of men who suffer from erectile dysfunction 17% have minimal ED, 25% have moderate ED, and 10% have complete ED – all of which have effective treatment options available to them.
