Background & Aims: This study aims to investigate the relationship between perfectionism (positive and negative) and self-esteem (personal competence and self-approbation) in predicting women's sexual satisfaction.

Material & methods: A descriptive and co relational design was used in this study. Also, this study was performed in the first quarter of 1393 year on all married women who referred to the 32 healthcare centers located in 2 region of Tehran city. The participants selected by Krejcie & Morgan Table (1970). A sample of 200 women were selected by out of this population. In this study, three standardized questionnaires were used incloding Hadson Sexual satisfaction index (ISS), Terry-Short Positive and Negative Perfectionism Scale and Rosenberg self-esteem Scale. Gathered data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics, regression, one-way ANOVA.

Results: The findings showed that Predictor variables were not able to predict sexual satisfaction (F (4,195) =2/30, P>0/05) and only 0/04 percent of variations in sexual satisfaction is explained by these variables. Also, among predictor variables, self-approbation (t= -2/30 >|2|, &beta; = -0/23 P< 0/05) which is independent of other predictive variables was able to predict and explain women's sexual satisfaction. In invesigating the effect of age and marriage length, a one-way ANOVA showed that the age (F (4, 195) = 0/75, P > 0/05) and marriage length (F (4, 195) = 1/55, P > 0/05) cannot act as good predictors.

Conclusion: According to importance of self-esteem and its relation with human behavior and actions especially in the family, and its impact on sexual satisfaction, it is necessary to provide a fertile ground for further improvements in women’s self esteem.
