Abstract

Abstract Objectives: Analysis of features describing sexuality and sexual behavior of married women, deeming their sexual life 'successful' or 'unsuccessful'. Material and Methods: 217 women have been interviewed with the help of our original questionnaire about sexual life. All women in question had been married at the time of the interview. The results have been submitted for statistical analysis. Results: Among 217 married women that had been interviewed, 190 (87.6%) described their sexual life as 'successful', while 25 (11.5%) as 'unsuccessful'. Two women were not sexually active and thus have been excluded from the study. Conclusions: 1. Women in failed marriages discuss the causes of their problems with their husbands less frequently, and more often have unrevealed sexual expectations and dreams, in comparison to the group of women in successful marriages. 2. Women who deemed their sexual life 'unsuccessful' have problems with accepting nudity, both theirs and their husbands. 3. Women describing their sexual life as 'unsuccessful' do not perceive sex as pleasure. 4. The belief that one has a 'successful' or 'unsuccessful' sexual life does not have influence on the attempts of undertaking sexual contacts, with or without the consent of a woman. 5. Almost a half of married women giving consent for intercourse against their will, both in 'happy' or 'failed' marriages, are of the opinion that a husband has the right to rape his wife. 6. 'Successful' sexual life in a marriage is not a guarantee of woman’s faithfulness. 7. The type of contraceptive used does not have an influence on perceiving one's sexual life as 'successful' or 'unsuccessful'.
