Forty patients took part in this study. Twenty patients treated by group desensitization were compared with twenty treated by individual desensitization. Group desensitization appeared the more effective treatment if outcome was measured on the patients' self-rating scale, but the less effective if outcome was measured by the sexual interest questionnaire. Of the two, the group method took longer to administer, but more patients treated in this way completed the course of treatment.
