They were studied prospectively by interview, attitude scales and the Eysenck Personality Inventory. Of the 48 frigid women, 17 of them substantially improved during treatment. Improvement was associated with the following variables before treatment: a better relationship with husband, more anxiety and a slightly higher score in Eysenck Personality Inventory.
