Background and Objective: Sexual self-concept (SSC) is considered as an important factor in human sexual performance. This study aimed at assessing the relationship between SSC and sexual performance in a group of Iranian married women.

Material and Methods: This correlational study was conducted on 374 married women selected via cluster random sampling in health centers of Mobarakeh, 2013. The data was collected by Multidimensional Sexual Self-concept Questionnaire (MSSCQ) and female sexual function index (FSFI), and analyzed by pearson correlation and multiple regressions.

Results: In accordance with the mean scores of positive SSC (106.32±35.03), negative SSC (36.64±5.16) and sexual performance (22.30±2.68), there was a significant correlation between positive SSC and sexual performance(r= 0.23, p<0.001), and between negative SSC and sexual performance (r= 0.38, p<0.001). Furthermore, positive SSC directly and negative SSC inversely was the predictor of sexual performance of married women.

Conclusion: Given the results, the women with higher positive SCC may have better sexual function. It seems that SCC score can be a significant predictor of women's sexual functioning.
