Male sexual function requires an intricate interplay between the man and his environment.

Cognitive integration and physiological response to sexual stimulation is dependent on complex neurologic functions that may be impaired by central or peripheral neurologic disorders.

This article reviews the normal neuroanatomy of sexual functioning in men, and the epidemiology, pathophysiology and management of sexual dysfunction in spinal cord injury, cerebrovascular accident, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's disease.
