Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (HSDD)

Definition - What does Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (HSDD) mean?

Hypoactive sexual desire disorder is a sexual dysfunction marked by the absence of interest in sexual activity and sexual fantasy. In order to be recognized as a disorder, the symptoms must not be able to be explained by other circumstances such as medical or mental disorder or drug use. Additionally, the symptoms must cause distress in the personal life of the patient.

Kinkly explains Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (HSDD)

The disorder is differentiated by gender in the DSM-V where it is classified as male hypoactive sexual desire disorder and female sexual interest/arousal disorder.

Asexuality activists criticize the characterization of this set of symptoms as a disorder.
