ABSTRACT
Recent epidemiological studies have revealed high prevalence rates for sexual dysfunction among young women. This study investigated the role of sexual self-schema, sexual aversion, sexual self-efficacy, and body attitudes in the sexual adjustment of a sample of 84 women between the ages of 18 and 29. Linear regression path analyses indicated that sexual self-efficacy mediated the association between sexual self-schema and sexual adjustment. Body attitudes did not appear to be related directly to sexual self-schema, sexual self-efficacy, and sexual adjustment. However, a more negative body attitude was associated with an increase in sexual aversion, which in turn was associated with negative sexual adjustment. The findings suggest that modifying negative sexual self-schema by increasing sexual self-efficacy may be an effective intervention for preventing the maintenance and/or exacerbation of sexual difficulties in young women.
