dc.description.abstract In this study we examined whether sexual communication, sexual education, first sexual encounter, pornography consumption, and body esteem were predictors of sexual satisfaction. Through Internet recruitment of individuals in romantic relationships and administration of an online survey we found that the effect of pornography on one’s life and sexual communication were positively associated with sexual satisfaction and a negative sexual education experience was negatively associated with sexual satisfaction. This study renders salient the importance of communication in romantic relationships and the ability for early experiences; especially when negative, to shape future sexual satisfaction.
