In China, the floating population is a special group of people who work and live outside their hometowns and without residence cards of that area they reside. Sexual problems are common in floating population, majority of whom are in their sex active age. There is a lack of studies concerning these sexual problems, so we conduct this survey to investigate the sexual dysfunctions among men, especially the floating population, and to find out whether most of these sexual problems are related to their social lives, medical illnesses, and psychological status.
