For young, heterosexual couples, communication is essential to a satisfying relationship, according to new research.
In a July 2020 Journal of Sexual Medicine study, scientists investigated the roles of sexual communication and frequency in both sexual and relationship satisfaction among 126 couples aged 18 to 30 years.
Both sexual frequency and communication predicted sexual satisfaction among the couples, but only communication predicted relationship satisfaction.
More details on the study are available here.
