The chances of developing sexual dysfunctions appear to increase with increasing years of alcohol consumed. Various explanations have been offered for sexual dysfunction in alcoholic patients. Higher level of alcohol intake may result in greater neurotoxic effects. The prevalence of sexual disorders in those people who consume alcohol has been known to occur frequently. The etiology of this dysfunction needs to be considered. This study has focused on the prevalence of sexual dysfunction in chronic alcohol consumers fulfilling the diagnostic criteria for alcohol dependence syndrome.
