Method: This qualitative study was conducted in the context of counseling interaction with families and girls with masturbation complaints during 1397 to 1399. In this study, 4 adolescent girls aged 14 to 17 years were included in the study by available sampling method. Data were collected through in-depth semi-structured interviews.

      The main purpose of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of individual cognitive-behavioral therapy on sexual coldness of Afghan women studying and studying in Iranian universities. The research method was quasi-experimental pretest-posttest with a control group. In order to conduct the research, 10 Afghan women with inclusion criteria were selected by available methods and then randomly divided into experimental and control groups. The measuring instrument in this study was the Women's Sexual Cold Inventory (Eshghi, 2006). In the experimental group, 8 sessions of cognitive-behavioral therapy were performed individually and during this period, no intervention was performed in the control group. The results of analysis of covariance showed that cognitive-behavioral therapy is effective in improving the overall score of cold temper in women (P = 0.0001). Therefore, it can be concluded that the methodological-behavioral method can be used to reduce women's cold temper and improve marital relationships and ultimately family health. Manuscript profile

      The aim of this study was to investigate the validity, reliability and factor structure of the Female Sexual Well-Being Scale in Iranian married women. For this purpose, a sample of 297 married women (with a mean age of 33.7 years and an age range of 24 to 45 years) was selected by simple random sampling. The Psychological Well-Being Questionnaire (Reef, 1995) and Women's Sexual Well-Being Scale (Rosen et al., 2009) were completed by the sample group. The validity of this scale was assessed using exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis methods, convergent and simultaneous validity. The reliability of the scale was evaluated by two methods of Cronbach's alpha and halving. The results of factor analysis using principal component method and varimax rotation showed that this scale consists of 4 factors with the titles of interpersonal relationships, cognitive-emotional domain, physical stimulation and orgasm satisfaction, which is more than 66% of the variance. They explain the whole. The convergent validity of this scale indicated a satisfactory correlation between the dimensions of the female sexual well-being scale and the total score. To determine the simultaneous validity of the scale, the correlation between the dimensions of the female sexual well-being scale and the psychological well-being scale was used, which indicated a favorable correlation (p <0.001). Cronbach's alpha and halving coefficients for the whole scale and its dimensions ranged from 0.63 to 0.82. The final result is that the Persian form of the Women's Sexual Welfare Scale has good validity and reliability in Iranian society and can be used in research, educational and clinical situations.

      This research has presented the conceptual model of "sexual chastity" by identifying and examining the components of sexual chastity and factors of the model. This work is qualitative and fundamental research that has been described and analyzed in the section of presenting a conceptual model based on the theory derived from data. For this purpose, 7 concepts related to chastity were identified from the verses of the Qur'an and explained with a coherent approach. By providing a model, the role of some of these concepts in explaining sexual chastity was confirmed. From a total of 345 verses of the Qur'an on sexual issues, 50 verses that were directly related to sexual chastity were selected, and then, with open coding, a total of 49 codes were identified. In the pivotal coding stage, the data were categorized into 19 elements and key concepts, and in the selective code stage, these concepts were subdivided into four template factors. The factors of the model including the components of the focal category, contexts, and causes, strategic concepts, and consequences of sexual chastity were identified and at the end, during this process, the conceptual model of sexual chastity has been designed with a Quranic approach.

      The aim of this study was to investigate the mediating role of sexual function in the relationship between sexual schemas and psychological well-being in married women. The descriptive research method was a constraint type which was performed using structural equation modelling method. The statistical population included married women from Shiraz. Using the available sampling method, 150 people were selected. Assessment tools included women's sexual performance index questionnaires (Rosen et al., 2000), sexual schema (Anderson and Sirvanowski, 1994), and psychological well-being (Reef, 1995). The data collected were analyzed in two descriptive levels (using mean, standard deviation) and inferential (using correlation coefficient and structural equation modelling with amos-21 software). The results showed that passionate-romantic and explicit-comfortable schemas had a positive and significant relationship and shy-cautious schemas had a negative and significant relationship with psychological well-being in married women. Sexual function was also a positive and significant predictor of psychological well-being. In addition, the results indicated that sexual function was able to mediate between passionate and romantic schemas and psychological well-being. Based on the research findings, it can be concluded that sexual schemas both directly and through sexual function can affect the psychological well-being of married women. Manuscript profile

      The present study aimed to investigate the relationship of parenting styles with parents’ sexual knowledge and attitude and the level of interest in talking about sexual issues with children in Shirazi families. The statistical sample consisted of 160 parents with children in Shiraz who were selected by convenience sampling. The data were collected by Parenting Styles Questionnaire (Baumrind, 1991), Parents’ Interest in Talking about Sexual Issues (Koblinsky & Atkinson, 1982), and Sexual Knowledge and Attitude Scale (Besharat, 2005). The reliability of the instruments was estimated using Cronbach’s alpha. The relationship of each dimension of parenting styles and parents’ sexual knowledge and attitude and interest in talking about sexual issues was examined using correlation and regression analysis. The results revealed a significant negative relationship between authoritarian parenting style and interest in talking about sexual issues. There was a significant positive relationship between authoritative parenting style and sexual knowledge and attitude . Furthermore, no significant relationship was found between permissive parenting style and sexual knowledge and attitude, and interest in talking about sexual issues in the family. However, even with the introduction of sexual knowledge and attitudes as predictors, authoritarian parenting style still negatively predicted the level of parents’ interest in discussing sexual issues. According to the results of this study, the best parenting style for communicating with children and talking about sexual issues is the authoritative parenting style. Parents should increase their knowledge and awareness about sexual issues and learn the principles of authoritative parenting to prevent high-risk and harmful behaviors in children.
