Animal models have contributed to a great extent to understanding and advancement in the field of sexual medicine. Many current medical and surgical therapies in sexual medicine have been tried based on these animal models. Extensive literature search revealed that the compiled information is limited. In this review, we describe various experimental models of erectile dysfunction (ED) encompassing their procedures, variables of assessment, advantages and disadvantages. The search strategy consisted of review of PubMed based articles. We included original research work and certain review articles available in PubMed database. The search terms used were DQED and experimental models,DQ DQED and nervous stimulation,DQ DQED and cavernous nerve stimulation,DQ DQED and central stimulation,DQ DQED and diabetes mellitus,DQ DQED and ageing,DQ DQED and hypercholesteremia,DQ DQED and PeyronieSQs disease,DQ DQradiation induced ED,DQ DQtelemetric recording,DQ DQED and mating testDQ and DQED and non-contact erection test.DQ
