Abstract: Correlates of sexual satisfaction were identified in a sample of married persons. A 70-item questionnaire was mailed to an age-stratified sample of 2,500 married women. Usable questionnaires were returned by 641 participants (a 25.5% return rate). Hierarchical multiple regression analysis, using sexual satisfaction as the dependent variable, yielded nine predictor variables that accounted for a significant portion of the variation in sexual satisfaction (Cumulative R Squared = .65). The results serve as a reminder that sexual interactions cannot be compartmentalized but must be considered within the context of the overall marriage relationship. Satisfaction with one's marriage or primary relationship tends to be a pivotal factor in overall happiness.
