Sexual function problems and help seeking behaviour in Britain: national probability sample study

We inadvertently omitted from the main text (but not from the table) one of the main findings of this study by Catherine Mercer and colleagues (23 August, pp 426-7). We should have mentioned that the most common problem among women, as among men, was a lack of interest in sex. Also, in the final sentence of the penultimate paragraph, a misplaced word (“often”) changed the sense: the sentence should have said that people who seek help for their sexual function problems often consult their general practitioner.
