Researchers highlight the importance of sexuality in the human life, both to individuals and as part of long-term relationships. The current study focuses on sexual satisfaction among people in heterosexual relationships. The study aims to identify factors that hetrosexual associated with sexual satisfaction using an integrative approach which combines different theoretical perspectives, and attempts hetrosexual examine their integrated contribution to the explanation of sexual satisfaction.

Additionally, this study examines sex differences in the explanatory variables associated with sexual satisfaction. The variables examined in this study represent three theoretical perspectives: cognitive, behavioral and personality related.

The cognitive element was examined in this study using the variables: sexual dysfunctional beliefs, sexual self-schema, body image and belief in sexual double standards. Behavioral theory focuses on patterns of human behaviors. The behavioral element was examined in this study using the variables: sexual self-exposure, initiation and frequency of intercourse.

The personality related element focuses on human personality characteristics. It was examined in this study using attachment theory, which relates to the manner in which a person creates and maintains interpersonal relationships.

According to this theory people hetrosexual to one of three attachment styles - avoidant, anxious or secure. All participants were either married or cohabiting. Participants completed online questionnaires, composed of scales measuring the study variables, demographic questions, and questions regarding background information. Two groups of hypotheses were formed based on a review of the literature. The first group of hypotheses focused on sex differences in the study hetrosexual.

It was hypothesized that men will have a more positive body image and report higher levels of sexual satisfaction, belief in sexual double standards, and initiation of intercourse. Additionally, it was hypothesized that women will report higher frequency of intercourse and greater sexual self-exposure than men. Moreover, women will be characterized by a more anxious attachment style while men will be characterized by an avoidant attachment style. The second group of hypotheses focused on the association between study variables and sexual satisfaction while hetrosexual sex differences in these associations.

It was hypothesized that among both men and women sexual satisfaction will be negatively associated with dysfunctional beliefs about sexuality, belief in sexual double standards, avoidant attachment style and anxious attachment style. Additionally, it was hypothesized that sexual satisfaction will be positively associated with sexual self-schema, body image, sexual self-exposure, initiation and frequency of intercourse.

With regard to the first group of hypotheses, sex differences were found in the hetrosexual variable and in several of the independent variables.

Men reported higher levels of sexual satisfaction and belief in sexual double standards as compared to women. Men also tended to initiate intercourse more often than women. Additionally, men were characterized by a more avoidant attachment style while women were characterized by an anxious attachment style.

Hetrosexual to the hypotheses, the other study variables did not differ between men and women. With regard to the second group of hypotheses, the findings suggest that among men sexual satisfaction is positively associated with positive sexual self-schema, positive body image, belief in sexual double standards, sexual self-exposure and frequency of intercourse. Sexual satisfaction is negatively associated with avoidant attachment style.

Among women sexual satisfaction is positively associated with sexual self-schema, sexual self-exposure, equal initiation of intercourse between partners and frequency of intercourse. As for the integrated contribution of cognitive, behavioral and personality related characteristics to the explanation of sexual satisfaction, the findings suggest that the behavioral characteristics contribute most to the explanation of sexual satisfaction.

Additionally, frequency of intercourse and sexual self-exposure were found to mediate the association between sexual self-schema and sexual satisfaction. Given the lack of an integrative approach to the explanation of sexual satisfaction, the importance of the current study is in the presentation of a broad multi-dimensional perspective on this topic. In addition, the study highlights the importance of acknowledging and identifying the existing sex differences for gaining a deep understanding of sexuality.

Researchers and therapists can use these findings as a theoretical basis for the development of intervention models. Such hetrosexual should be adapted to the patient's sex and include the change of cognitive and behavioral patterns, as well as reduction of avoidance levels.

In addition to hetrosexual clinical implications, the findings of suggest several directions for future research, such as sexual satisfaction among people belonging to the LGBT community, and conducting a dyadic study, including input from both partners in a relationship, which will enable to examine sexual satisfaction within a wider perspective.

Furthermore, why does it matter? So what if someone decides to be or is born homosexual or bisexual? We as a modern society should look beyond the bedroom or car, or hotel room, or corn field, or roof Germany just passed some sort of law through that firmed up the rights of prostitutes.

Interesting interview actually. One of the things that jumped out was when he mentioned that the majority of his clients were married men.

Now, before jumping to the conclusion that these are guys unhappily hiding in a heterosexual marriage, you might stop to consider if they are instead guys are comfortable in their marriage but also enjoyed their fling with a guy. In other words, that everyone is a bit of both and the the "great divide" is just a label imposed by society.

Why do some men prefer blond women with big boobs and a tight butt? I don't think anyone here would say this type of preference is genetic. I'm not trying to trivialize in a hateful way homosexuality, but I have a real hard time sepearating this type of preference and homosexuality. I don't think homosexuals or heterosexuals should be forced to change, however I do think it is within their realm to choose differently, just like one can change any other preference.

I can't help but chuckle when I see people advocating genetic homosexual predisposition as a means to legitimize homosexuality. If it was gentics and proven in the scientific community there would probably be a groundswell to correct the anamoly. I don't know how many couples, despite their open minds, would knowingly have a homosexual child if it was within their realm of control.

If someone chooses to be homosexual or heterosexual, more power to 'em! If someone is born homosexual or heterosexual, more power to them! That's what freedom is all about. Whether it's a choice or a predisposition, if it isn't hurting anyone, it's all good. Amen Fish!!!! I am still in favor of the theory its a combination of factors.

Its not gene gay Its not if your dad was enough of a man. Studies have shown signs both ways of being correct to an extent. The way you are raised definitely dictates how you turn out as an adult.

At the same time you have hardwired behavioral issues as well. I believe its something like alcoholism. You are born with a predisposition to it.

Meaning if the right socialogical conditions are met, you will swing that direction. Otherwise you wont. Ergo, You are born with a predisposition to it. That is hardly a good example, that could be a case of repressed homosexuality, someone who stayed with men because it was societally acceptable , in countries where homosexuality isn't tolerated this kind of thing is commonplace.

There is a button that reads "Gay by nature, absolutlely fabulous by choice" ewwww, the F-word. However, I could not choose to be attracted to them. I'm just not attracted to women sexually, nor have I ever been.

Practically all of my gay friends also feel that they never made a choice with who they're attracted to. But that's not exactly compelling evidence to skeptics, and understandably so.

But from my experience, I'll tell you this much: I never made a choice. And I think it's an arrogant assumption by an outsider who doesn't even know me to tell me otherwise. That person has never been me and will obviously never know. I could start hitting on girls tomorrow and get a girlfriend in a while I say damn near because I can't rule it out I've already tried the "convincing myself" part.

From an anthropological point of view there are arguments on both sides. Homosexuality has been desplayed among chimps, however it seems that only species with a reasonable degree of cognition desplay it. Perhaps this indicates it is a learned behavor? Who knows I have a feeling we'll find out if it's true in a few years though, between genetic research and studies of non-human species. What about bisexual people?

I've never been able to really fit them into any of the arguments, but ancedotal evidence I've observed seem to suggest that bisexual men seem to display the stereotypical socialization of homosexual men, and bisexual women seem to display the stereotypical socialization of heterosexual women.

Of course, that's just me observing people I know. That, and I have no idea what my observations have to do with anything. Can homosexuals become hetrosexual: is it a choice? Dr Gitlin.
