Every type of sexual trauma is overlaid with the sexual mores and taboos of society and the individual psychosexual values of the patient. Informed and appropriate treatment should give good results for the patient physically as well as psychologically. Fortunately for the human species, wounds from Cupid's bow are much more common than any injury discussed by us. For those unfortunates who sustain such injuries in the pursuit of happiness, however, these guidelines for diagnosis and treatment are submitted for your review and their benefit. © 1986 American College of Emergency Physicians.
