Introduction: Sexual dysfunction is a primary concern for individuals and causes a significant reduction in quality of life. One of these disorders is orgasmic disorder. Therefore, the present study was conducted to investigate the effect of distance education on patients with orgasmic disorders.
Material and methods: The present study is a quasi-experimental study and the available sampling method was performed on 80 married women with orgasmic disorder in Tonekabon-Iran from 2019 to 2020. Patients were randomly divided into two groups, the members of one group were given distance education, but the members of the other group were given face-to-face training. Inclusion criteria included: having a sexual partner and consent to participate in the study and orgasmic disorders (score below 80 according to the Halbert questionnaire). Exclusion criteria included: pregnancy, birth control pills, epilepsy, hypothyroidism, hypertension above 140 over 90 over 90, diabetes, and depression. A two-part questionnaire was designed based on demographic information and Halbert's questionnaire and was given to individuals at the beginning of the study and 6 weeks after distance learning, which is attached to the questionnaire. Data obtained from the questionnaires were analyzed using chi-square and t-test statistical tests such as the chi-square test. The significance level (p-value) for the present study was considered 0.05.
Results: The highest frequency of women in the study belonged to the age group of 18 to 30 years with 52.5%, followed by women aged 31 to 44 years at 38.8%, and finally women over 44 years at 8.8%. Sixty percent of the women in the study were less than 10 years old and 40% were more than 10 years old. The mean orgasm of the women in the study in the close education group was 72.61 with a standard deviation of 28.3 and the mean score in the distance education group was 93.41 with a standard deviation of 25.64. According to paired t-test, there was a significant difference between the orgasmic scores between the two groups and in the distance education group the female orgasmic score was significantly increased (p<0.001, t=-4.196). The results showed in the distance education group that there was no significant difference in terms of low and normal orgasmic dispersion between women with less than 10 years of marriage, both before and after training. Also, the duration of marriage had no effect on the orgasm score of the training group. Remotely before (p=0.774, t=1.642) and after training (p=0.874, t=1.421). As well as, in the group of close education, there was a significant difference in terms of the distribution of low and normal orgasms among women with a history of the marriage of fewer than ten years and more than equal to ten years, both before and after training. This result demonstrated that the duration of marriage had an effect on the orgasmic score of this group before (p=0.168, t=1.102) and did not have it after training (p=0.749, t=0.902).
Conclusion: The results of this study show that distance education can be effective in promoting sexual health and improving women's orgasmic scores.
