Finally 72 women (19 to 55 years old) and 23 men (18 to 31 years old) from the departments of Gynecology, Urology, Dermatology and Emergency of our Hospital area were selected for a simple test trial including 4 questions for women and 6 for men (Sexual Orientation was not considered). Informed consent was obtained from all participants. After a telephone interview a frequency incidence study was made and standardized information sheets about prevention and healthy sexuality were sent to all participants.

Many persons presented more than only one dysfunction. No abuse or illegal situations were detected.7 cases required urgent surgery: 1 Penile fracture, 1 Frenulum fracture, 3 Vaginal wall damages, 2 Annus damages.

Conclusion(s): Medium age of amateur actors/actresses is higher in women than in men. Negative Psychic consequences of this new behavior are the most frequent items, both in men and women. Sexual Pain was particularly high among women, due to violent/aggressive practices forced by male chauvinists.
