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.
