Abstract

The paper analyzes the structure and dynamics of sexual
satisfaction in a random sample of over seven hundred
metropolitan women and men aged 20-60. We test several
hypotheses, informed by both evolutionary and social
constructivist theory, about the influence of gender and age
on sexual satisfaction. The results point out the considerable
overlap between the correlates of male and female sexual
satisfaction with partner's satisfaction being the strongest
predictor. In spite of the predicted decline in sexual interest,
sexual satisfaction does not seem to be diminishing with age.
In the concluding section, the authors discuss the findings in
regard to the sexual dynamics within long-term intimate
relationships.
