Abstract

The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between alexithymia and sexual satisfaction among female married students in Tabriz University. Relevant data was collected from 100 female married students who were chosen by means of simple random sampling. The research tools used were: (1) Farsi Version of the Toronto Alexithymia Scale (TAS-20), with three factors of difficulty identifying feelings (DIF), difficulty describing feelings (DDF), and externally-oriented thinking; and (2) the sexual satisfaction questionnaire. Analysis of multivariate regression shows that there are negative and significant relationships between the total score and the subscale score of the Alexithymia scale with sexual satisfaction. Furthermore, results indicate that the best predictors of sexual satisfaction, in order of importance, are the total score and the (DIF) subscale of alexithymia scale.
