Our study examines sexual roles in popular sex and marriage manuals, with particular attention to the suggested causes and aids for sexual problems. By reviewing popular books, we felt we could gain perspective on the attitudes and frameworks being "sold" to the public. We found large differences in responsibility for sexual dysfunction between the sexes, with females seen more frequently as the "cause" and "cure" for the most common sexual problems.
