Message:
Abstract:
Introduction

Sexual performance affects the quality of life of the individuals and their sexual partners. Impaired sexual performance would lead to certain problems. Emotional intelligence is effective in the improvement of sexual satisfaction.

Objective

The present study was conducted to evaluate the effect of emotional intelligence on men’s sexual performance.

Materials and Methods

The present correlational analytical study was conducted in 2018 in the health centers of Rasht City, Iran on 100 men who were selected using a randomized cluster sampling method. The study data were collected using the demographic
questionnaire, the Bar-On emotional quotient inventory, and the international index of erectile function through self-report after confirmation of their validity and reliability. The obtained data were analyzed by the indicators of central tendency  (mean, standard deviation) and the Pearson correlation coefficient. P value of less than 0.05 was set as the level of significance for all the statistical tests.

Results

The Mean±SD age of the samples was 34.59±6.15 years and most of them had academic degrees and married for more than two years. Their Mean±SD emotional intelligence and sexual function scores were 307.37±21.14 and 23.4±16.7, respectively. There was a significant positive correlation between emotional intelligence and the components of sexual function, including libido (r =0.72, P= 0.001), sexual arousal (r=0.57, P=0.001), orgasm (r=0.58, P=0.001), satisfaction with intercourse (r=0.75, P=0.001), and total satisfaction (r=0.74, P=0.001).

Conclusion

There is a significant and direct correlation between men’s emotional intelligence and sexual function. So emotional intelligence is one of the crucial factors in the couple’s satisfaction with their sexual function and making efforts for its improvement could resolve the couple’s dissatisfaction to some extent.
