Shrink discovers less sex in high-tech group

JERUSALEM (JPS) — Entrepreneurs and employees in Israel's high-tech industry represent the largest group of sufferers from sexual dysfunction, according to Dr. Ronit Aloni, a prominent Tel Aviv sex therapist.

"The lion's share of my practice comprises patients who work in the high-tech sector," Aloni said in an interview following a recent lecture. Aloni estimates that up to one-third of Israelis who suffer from sexual dysfunction work for high-tech companies.
