Proposed Sexual Aversion Criteria Revision

Given the difficulties inherent in the current classification systems for sexual aversion disorder (DSM-IV-TR and the 1999 Consensus Classification), we have proposed (11) a revised classification system that is based on a modification of these taxonomies. This proposed classification maintains the distinction between primary and secondary sexual aversion. However, this distinction will only be useful for the diagnostic differentiation of the acquisition of aversion early in life and the lifelong presence of hypoactive sexual desire (Table 5.3).

With this modified taxonomy in mind, we will describe a case of primary sexual aversion.
