Importance of and Satisfaction with Sex Life in a Large Finnish Population

Importance of and Satisfaction with Sex Life in a Large Finnish Population This paper describes five sex life issues in a Finnish population–based random sample (n = 21,101) between 20 and 54 years of age. The associations were studied with the following demographic variables: gender, age, marital status, graduation from the 3 upper classes of high school, vocational education, degree of urbanization, and province or area of the country. Men considered sex life more important than women did. Women were more satisfied with their sex lives, found it easier to talk about sex life with an important other, had had a spouse or steady partner more often, but were also less satisfied with their present marriages or marriage-like relationships. The above findings were most consistently shown in the Northern Province. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Sex Roles Springer Journals

Abstract

This paper describes five sex life issues in a Finnish population–based random sample (n = 21,101) between 20 and 54 years of age. The associations were studied with the following demographic variables: gender, age, marital status, graduation from the 3 upper classes of high school, vocational education, degree of urbanization, and province or area of the country. Men considered sex life more important than women did. Women were more satisfied with their sex lives, found it easier to talk about sex life with an important other, had had a spouse or steady partner more often, but were also less satisfied with their present marriages or marriage-like relationships. The above findings were most consistently shown in the Northern Province.
