This study investigates sexual communication with the objective of understanding better some of its characteristics such as: content, strategies, and valence. Several methods and techniques were used to measure sexual communication: (1) sexual life history (2) couple's dialogue and (3) inventory of sexual expressions. Results indicate that the primary reason for engaging in sex within the couple is love, and the main reason for avoiding it is feeling tired. Diverse strategies are used by couples to express desire or sexual avoidance, and each couple assumes its own sexual style. Future studies are proposed that may analyze sexual communication within a couple's relationship and establish differences by gender.
