Description

The purpose of this study is to assess the general barriers of ideal sexual frequency. Current research focuses on specific barriers (i.e., body image, sexual functioning, and physical health) leading to a discrepancy among actual sexual frequency and ideal sexual frequency, and has not evaluated the occurrence of these barriers in concert. Therefore, this study focuses on occurrence and amount of distress caused by various barriers to ideal sexual frequency. Undergraduate student participants completed the Barriers to Ideal Sexual Frequency Survey through an online data collection system. Results indicate that relationship status, stress and fear of becoming pregnant are the most prevalent barriers to sexual frequency in our sample. The least prevalent barriers include sexual traumatic experience, mental health and physical mobility. Demographic differences in barriers to sexual frequency and the implication of these findings are discussed.
