To the Editor: The study reported by Dr Rhodes and colleagues,1 like previous studies evaluating the effect of hysterectomy on sexual behavior,2-4 focused on the quantity rather than the quality of sexual activity. Rhodes et al measured sexual function with closed response and multiple-choice questions rather than standardized sexual response questionnaires or interviews that would have brought greater meaning and specificity to the results.
