Background: Sexual satisfaction is one of the factors affecting the continuity of marital relationship and satisfaction with this relationship. Regarding this, the present research was conducted to develop a model of Iranian sexual satisfaction in terms of marital adjustment, marital quality, and marital conflict.
Materials and Methods: This applied exploratory study was conducted during 2018-2019 using a qualitative method and data-based approach. The data were collected using in-depth interviews. After the interview, the obtained data were subjected to inductive analysis. In other words, there was no previous conceptual framework for coding and categorization, rather the analysis was performed freely and according to the coding technique of data theory. To assess the validity of the content of the subject matter, the table of contents was submitted to six faculty members of psychology who were familiar with qualitative research and sexuality issues, who confirmed the content validity of the identified themes.
Results: Based on the results, the final model of the research consisted of eleven different themes, including seven stimulants, namely preparation, sexual preferences, sexual representation, cognition, attitude, sexual behaviors, and sexual consequences, and four preventive factors, namely cognitive impediments, emotional barriers, barriers to behavior, and environmental barriers.
Conclusion: Recommendations for couples to obtain sexual satisfaction must be based on both stimuli and barriers as identified in this research.
Keywords: Cognition, Emotion, Marriage, Sex
