Research has shown important associations between dimensions of well being and women’s sexuality (e.g., Heiman, 2002; Wiederman & Hurst, 1998) However, most studies have been restricted to the context of physical disability (e.g., Hassouneh-Phillips et al., 2005; Taleporos & McCabe, 2002), and very few have considered those variables together in order to clarify their differential impact on sexual experiences. For example, the specific role and relation between self-esteem and sexual esteem is still unclear. Following this, our goal was to investigate how components of women´s well being and sexual esteem may interact with sexual function and satisfaction.
