Abstract: 

Background: Satisfaction of orgasm is a necessary physiologic demand. With respect to lack of informative data, the present study was conducted in females referring to primary health care centers in Shaheed Beheshti University of Medical Sciences in 2000, to determine the attitude and satisfaction towards sexual relation.
Materials and methods: For this cross sectional study, 406 subjects were selected through a randomized sampling. Initial data including age, level of education, family size, parity, breast feeding following the delivery, private bed room, availability to bathroom, socioeconomic status, stimulation and orgasm phases, and attitude towards sexual satisfaction were all recorded. Satisfaction was defined based on the orgasm phase including the culmination of the sexual excitement. Finally, attitude towards sexual relation, excitement phase and orgasm were determined among samples.
Results: The mean (± SD) age of the participants was 29.1± 6.8 and the mean marriage duration was 9.1± 7.1 years. They belonged to the moderate socioeconomic class. 63.5% of the participants were not satisfied with their sexual relation. Positive attitude towards sexual relation was found in 85.2%. Reaching an orgasm was increased by age till 30 years, however, it was decreased after that time. The time of marriage has shown no correlation with attitude but a reverse association with satisfaction (p<0.05). Higher socioeconomic status was significantly associated with orgasm and attitude (p<0.05).
Conclusion: To be unsatisfied with sexual relation is a serious problem that seeks further attention. Developing educational programs before and after the marriage is highly recommended.
