The present investigation is designed to study the stereotypes about male sexuality, in men with sexual dysfunction and normal controls. The sample of the study is composed of 25 men with sexual dysfunction and 25 men as normal controls. The normal control is matched with the control group in terms of age, education, marital status and religion. Data was collected using the Stereotypes about Male sexuality scale (Snell, 1990) and Socio-Demographic Clinical Data Sheet (SDCDS). The descriptive survey method was used as the research design. The data collected were analysed by employing the statistical techniques such as arithmetic mean, standard deviation, Karl Pearson's coefficient of correlation and ‘t’ – test. The result indicates that men with sexual dysfunction had significantly higher stereotype belief about male sexuality in comparison to normal controls.
