In sexology the existing questionnaires do not sufficiently consider the experiencing of sexuality and the extent of sexual satisfaction. That is why a questionnaire was developed which includes, besides the frequency and duration of sexual activities, the satisfaction with frequency and duration of these activities and the desired sexual behaviour. A first study with this questionnaire was carried out on women with heterosexual behaviour, aged 20 to 48 years. The frequent desire with regard to coital orgasm as one result of our investigation confirms the centering of orgasm in other studies. But half of the women do not describe orgasm as the favoured feeling during sexual intercourse.

Clue is on a mission to help you understand your body, periods, ovulation, and so much more. Start tracking today. A happy sex life is an important part of a fulfilling life. What a happy sex life means is subjective, as our sexual desires, expectations and needs differ from one another and change as we grow and age. Some people want to have sex daily, while other people are content never having sex throughout their lifetime. The subjectivity of sexual satisfaction is an important consideration in research and diagnosis of sexual dysfunction.
[Sexual satisfaction of women--development and results of a questionnaire]
Philadelphia, PA, January 3, — A new study of sexually active older women has found that sexual satisfaction in women increases with age and those not engaging in sex are satisfied with their sex lives. A majority of study participants report frequent arousal and orgasm that continue into old age, despite low sexual desire. Researchers from the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and the Veterans Affairs San Diego Healthcare System evaluated sexual activity and satisfaction as reported by older women who are part of the Rancho Bernardo Study RBS cohort, a group of women who live in a planned community near San Diego and whose health has been tracked for medical research for 40 years. The study measured the prevalence of current sexual activity; the characteristics associated with sexual activity including demographics, health, and hormone use; frequency of arousal, lubrication, orgasm, and pain during sexual intercourse; and sexual desire and satisfaction in older women. Half the respondents who reported having a partner had been sexually active in the last 4 weeks.
