Aims: Sexual satisfaction is one of the aspects of sexual health that is vital in maintaining the couple's relationship and their quality of life. The present study aimed to investigate the factors predicting sexual satisfaction based on the IMB model among Iranian men.
Instrument & Methods: This was a cross-sectional descriptive-analytical study. A  number of 362 men living in Sanandaj, Iran, with a marriage age of fewer than 5 years were systematically included in the study. Data collection tools were Larson sexual satisfaction questionnaire, sexual health questionnaire based on information-motivation-behavioral skills model constructs, and men's sexual function questionnaire. Data analysis was performed at a significant level of 0.05 and with SPSS 20 software.
Findings: The results indicate that 1.4% of participants have no sexual satisfaction at all, 43.1% have poor sexual satisfaction, 53.9% have moderate sexual satisfaction and 1.7% have high sexual satisfaction. The regression model showed that the level of education, information, and motivation of the IMB model were predictors of sexual satisfaction with a 13% variance (F=19.48, p=0.001, r=0.13, R2=0.37).
Conclusion: The findings of this study showed that sexual dissatisfaction is related to the level of education, information, and motivation of men about sexual issues.
