Introduction: Sexual health is one main aspect of health, which can affect couples in different stages of life. This study aimed at exploring predicting sexual health in couples based on locus of control, social support and meta-emotions.
Methods: This study is a correlational one. The statistical population of this study consisted of all couples living in Ardebil City in 2019. Using convenient sampling method, 120 people (60 couples) were chosen as the sample. To collecting data, locus of control scale of Rotter (1966), social support of Zimet (1988), meta-emotion of Mitmansgruber et al (2009), sexual health scale of Manavi Pour (2010) were used. Data were analyzed by Pearson correlation coefficients and multiple regression in SPSS-18 software.
Results: The findings showed that there is a significant relationship between locus of control, social support, meta-emotion and sexual health of the couples (p<0.05). According to the results, locus of control, social support and meta-emotion can explain 57 per cent of sexual health variance (p<0.05).
Conclusion: Sexual health of couples can be predicted through variables such as locus of control, social support and meta-emotion. Thus, we suggest that psychologist and health professionals pay more attention to these variables to enhance the sexual health of couples. Given its importance, we think that researchers must carry out more research on sexual health issues.
Keywords: Locus of Control, Social Support, Meta-emotion, Sexual Health, Couples
