The new field of Sexual Medicine has now changed to the primary care physician because of the new symptom-treating pharmacological possibilities, a fact not to be foreseen 10 years ago. The future, therefore, is to create the platform for the 'basic doctor' to identify and correctly treat male and female sexual dysfunction on the basis of a sufficient knowledge (obtained through formalized, pre-graduate education) within the field of Sexual Medicine. All this will need positive support and good strategies, as well as evidence-based new knowledge created by endocrinology, gynaecology, andrology, genetics, neurology, angiology, but also psychology, sociology, anthropology and related disciplines to help the medical clinician to fulfil his Hippocratic Oath: to assist the individual who needs help - in sexual dilemmas as well.
