Objective: Scientific data shows that early appearance of sexual meanings in child development could predispose to psycho-sexual distortions that manifest later by different kinds of sexual disorders. By the term of erotic libido we understand the emergence of sensual fantasizing and the inner drive toward releasing sexual tension by seeking physical contact not including sexual intercourse per se. We give an importance to this concept as it indicates the very beginning of women’s sexual manifestation. The aim of our study was to examine when erotic libido awakens in sexually concerned women and whether it determines the existing sexual dysfunction they are suffering from. Design and Method: We have conducted cross-sectional study in 90 middleaged women reporting sexual problems. Female Sexual Function Index was used to assess their sexual function. The question that refers to their erotic libido age was “When did you first become aware of and interested in your own sexuality and start to fantasize sensual experiences?” Two groups of women distinguished- one with earlier erotic libido age (group one) and the other with on-time erotic libido age (group two). Results: Our findings show that there is statistically significant difference in two groups relating to their sexual disorder type. Sexual desire disorder meets in women from the second group, subjective sexual arousal disorder affects women from the first group. Orgasm disorder is equally met in two groups. Conclusions: The earlier awaking of erotic interest plays a crucial role in developing of female sexual identity and its integration into their sexual life.
