Abstract

The Use of prescribed sexual experiences in the treatment of sexual dysfunction represents a major innovation in modern treatment technology. However, erotic experiences have been used to relieve sexual problems since antiquity. Thousands of years ago, a Greek deprived of his potency by the gods might have journeyed to one of the Temples of Aphrodite, where a prostitute-priestess trained in the art of love (the first surrogate partner?) might have shared certain religious-erotic experiences with him, and thus cured him of his erectile dysfunction.
