Fifth version of American Psychiatric Association’s classification, DSM, was released in May 2013. Its completion was preceded by years of intensive discussions, clinical trials and secondary data analysis, which were aimed at as best as possible reflecting of clinical reality. In the present article review of literature was presented, showing the range of work connected with the area of widely understood sexual disorders as well as the most important changes regarding it that are included in DSM-5. Review of Polish literature published in the last three years (2011-2013) regarding sexual issues in selected scientific journals: Seksuologia Polska, Ginekologia Polska, Psychiatria Polska, Psychoterapia was also conducted. It was aimed at analysis of basic research trends within the area of sexual disorders in Poland. The review shows that there was relatively not many articles, they were concentrated on interdisciplinary issues and clinical populations of patients suffering from disorders different than sexual. It was noticed that there were no articles on paraphilias, and at the same time publications regarding forensic sexology were present. It would be advisable to publish reports form scientific congresses of sexology on a more regular basis, that would perhaps inspire further research in the field of sexology in our country.
