    Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common form of sexual dysfunctions, which significantly deteriorates the quality of life of a man and his partner. ED can also affect self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-image of masculinity. The launch of Viagra in 1998 has revolutionized the management of ED. In the recent years, ED research has focused on regenerative therapies which have the potential of restoring erectile function permanently. Such a treatment modality will rule out the need for continuously taking medication for a healthy sexual life. Development of ideal ED therapy requires good understanding of ED pathophysiology and efficacy of currently available treatments. In order to contribute to the efforts in finding the "cure" for ED, we have created an "Erectile Dysfunction 2020 Collection" where our readers will be able to read the most up to date research on this important sexual problem. We truly hope that, the articles that we have published in IJIR: Your Sexual Medicine Journal will be beneficial for our readers.

    Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a highly prevalent and disturbing medical problem. It does not only affect the quality of sexual life- it has a much broader impact on males, affecting self-esteem, self- confidence, self-image of poor masculinity, and altogether decreases quality of life. Today, the field of ED is lacking a treatment modality that would have a perspective for restoring erectile function, and hopefully for curing ED. In this respect, Shock Wave therapy is certainly moving in the right direction and moving us forward in the search for a solution for ED. In this new special issue we offer a comprehensive look at the debatable topics discussed in the literature and provide new data that fills in many of the gaps.

    Sexuality used to be a taboo in many cultures and people who suffer from sexual problems were embarrassed to report their sexual complaints to their physicians, most of whom were also embarrassed to discuss these issues with their patients. The launch of sildenafil (Viagra) in 1998 revolutionized our understanding on male sexual problems and men became more open to talk about their sexuality. On the other hand, female sexual disorders remain to be elusive and there are limited data on this topic due to the complex nature of female sexuality.
