From the Paper:

"Although hypoactive sexual desire is a disorder, it includes desire at least once a week, but with sexual aversion, women find sex particularly "unpleasant and may sicken disgust or frighten them". Some women are repelled by a particular aspect of sex, such as penetration of the vagina; others experience a general aversion to all sexual stimuli, including kissing and touching. Aversion to sex seems to be quite rare in men and somewhat more in women. Let us see some of these disorders' causes."
