Background: Sexual satisfaction was one of the primary issues in marital life, but there are always factors that affect this satisfaction and affect the personal and social well-being of families. This study was aimed to investigate factors that may decrease couples' sexual satisfaction through a qualitative research.
Methods: This study was a qualitative content analysis research. Purposeful sampling was used and after in-depth and open-ended interviews with 12 couples (12 female and 12 male), their experiences were analyzed through a thematic method.
Results: Findings revealed that the reasons of sexual satisfaction reductions include personal deficits (cognitive distortions and inattention), interpersonal conflicts (interpersonal interference, weak interpersonal communication skills), and socioeconomic challenges (Fear of being labeled, economic shortages, and lack of skilled interveners).
Conclusions: Weakness in planning in the area of family health and policy has led to gender issues being neglected. All factors that contribute to couples' sexual satisfaction should be taken into account for family health planning.
Keywords: Interpersonal Conflicts, Sexual satisfaction, Socio-Economic Challenges
