Original abstract

In sex therapy, women's sexual dissatisfaction is often the motivation for seeking care. Somme sexual therapies, such as Sexofunctional Therapy, hypothesize that each individual develops more or less erotic abilities, that enhance sexual satisfaction, which can be classified into three components : cognitive erotic abilities, behavioural erotic abilities, and emotional and sensation-based feelings. These hypothesis are not currently validated scientifically.

Objectives: The objectives of this exploratory study are to identify the emotional, cognitive and behavioural erotic abilities of sexually satisfied women.

Method and materials: In a semi-directive interview, twenty-three women (eleven auto-declared sexually satisfied) were asked to answer questions, constructed from the Sexofunctional Therory. The responses of the sexually satisfied women were compared to those of the dissatisfied women through content analysis using a method of expert judges.

Results: The results show that in the sexuality practice, women who declare themselves satisfied practice more masturbation, report more diverse sexual behaviours, and are active (they use their pelvis and pelvic floor muscles). They don’t report any unpleasant emotions or sensations, but perceive more sexual sensations. Finally, at the cognitive level, satisfied women report significantly more positive cognitions related to the sexual stimuli. A model of female sexual satisfaction is proposed.
