About the BSSM
The British Society for Sexual Medicine (BSSM) was founded in 1997 (as the British Society for Sexual and Impotence Research, or BSSIR) to promote research and exchange of knowledge across the UK scientific community.
We focus on the basic science of sexual function and dysfunction, and the clinical aspects of diagnosis and treatment of sexual problems in men and women.
We recognise the importance of a holistic approach to understanding human sexuality and its problems, and we encourage research into all of its many aspects. We aim to foster and maintain the highest standards in clinical practice among our members, and promote the adoption of similar standards across all UK health professionals.
