Italy global leader in sexual health research (ANSA) - Rome, March 4 - Italy can rightly consider itself a global leader in the field of sexual health research, a group of scientists said Tuesday.

Italian sexologists and andrologists are, or have served, on the board of all relevant international scientific societies while "in the field of medical sexology Italians can undoubtedly boast the greatest scientific production," said Emmanuele Jannini, professor of sexual medicine at the University of L'Aquila. The majority of scientific discoveries concerning premature ejaculation - the most common problem for men - have come from Italian research laboratories, he added.
