In Reply: Like Drs Rozenman and Janssen, we were interested in many additional aspects of sexual functioning, but the participants in this study patiently answered many questions and could not be imposed upon further. Nonetheless, we believe that our questions did characterize the quality of sexual relations, and that changes in the responses reflected changes in the quality of sexual relations. For instance, we feel certain that most women would describe increases in orgasm frequency and strength and decreases in vaginal dryness as positive changes in the quality of sexual relations.
