Sexual behaviour of 75 normal married females was studied. Most of them had a healthy attitude to sex. Frequency of sexual activity decreases with age and duration of marriage. Median frequency for 21-30years age was 2/week, for 31- 40years was 1.4/week and for 41-50 years was 0.5/week. Frequency of coitus did not correlate with socio-economic status. Nearly 52% women had more than 50% satisfactory coitus. Sexual satisfaction was significantly associated with economic status and satisfactory marriage. It did not have any correlation with frequency of coitus in women above 30 years of age. Duration of foreplay also did not significantly relate to sexual satisfaction. Touching of breast and clitoris were most preferred foreplay activities for females while for males penile stimulation was preferred activity. 53% of males ejaculte before their wives could have orgasm yet it did not significantly affect sexual satisfaction.
