Reports of the Sexual and Gender Identity Disorders Workgroup

I have just recently discovered that the (published) reports of the Sexual and Gender Identity Disorders Workgroup for DSM-V are posted online on dsm5.org here. For readers who have do not have online access to the journals these are in (i.e. through a university library), this should now make these article accessible if you are interested.

I've provided links to the ones that I think readers may be most interested in, which includes the introduction to the series, the reports of female HSDD, Sexual Aversion Disorder, and Female Sexual Arousal Disorder (which they have proposed to merge with HSDD.)

Also, Jack Drecher's paper on "Gender Identity Disorder" was, I thought, especially interesting from a historical perspective.

Zucker KJ. Reports from the DSM-5 Work Group on Sexual and Gender Identity Disorders. Archives of Sexual Behavior, 2009; in press

Brotto LA. The DSM Diagnostic Criteria for Sexual Aversion Disorder. Archives of Sexual Behavior, 2009; in press.

Drescher J. Queer Diagnoses: Parallels and Contrasts in the History of Homosexuality, Gender Variance, and the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual. Archives of Sexual Behavior, 2009; epub ahead of print.

Graham CA. The DSM Diagnostic Criteria for Female Sexual Arousal Disorder. Archives of Sexual Behavior, 2009; in press.

On the dsm5 website, there are only two reports from this workgroup that are not presently available. For report for Sexual Masochism is not there as it has not yet been published online, but I am told it should be available any day now.

The report on male HSDD is also unavailable. The DSM5 website does not cite it, and rumor has it that this is because the article has not yet been completed.
