Correct Answer C) Primary Ejaculatory Incompetence

The correct answer is C. Primary ejaculatory incompetence

This was a tricky question, here is the explanation -

Primary Ejaculatory Incompetence means that the adult male has never developed the ability to ejaculate while engaged in sexual activity with another person. It is extremely difficult to treat.

Dyspareunia (choice A), painful intercourse, is easily treated by addressing the underlying medical causes that exist in the vast majority of cases.

Premature ejaculation (choice B) is readily addressed by the "squeeze technique."

Secondary orgasmic dysfunction (choice D) means there has been function but it has been lost. Any secondary sexual dysfunction is easier to treat than a primary problem.

Vaginismus (choice E) is often related to fear and apprehension regarding the act of penetration and is quite easily treated by behavior modification.
