Sexual functioning was determined in 300 healthy Ghanaian men with the Golombok Rust Inventory of Sexual Satisfaction (GRISS) questionnaire leaving in Kumasi metropolis, between December 2009 and April 2010. All men had a steady heterosexual relationship for at least 2 years before enrollment in the study. Of the 300 men selected, 255 (85%) completed the survey; the overall prevalence of SD in these subjects was 66%. The most prevalent areas of difficulty were infrequency (70.2%), premature ejaculation (64.7%), dissatisfaction with sexual acts (61.2%), impotency (59.6%), nonsensuality (59.2%), noncommunication (56.9%) and avoidance (49.0%). There were positive correlation between SD, impotence, dissatisfaction and age. The prevalence rate of SD in Ghanaian men is high and related to age.
