Wellbeing and sexual esteem as predictors of women's sexual satisfaction and functioning

Dr Sandra Vilarinho

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.
