The statistical population of the study is married women in Isfahan in 1399-1400. Among them, 34 people were selected by the available sampling method and randomly assigned to experimental (17 people) and control (17 people) groups. Temperament training was held for eight sessions and in contrast, the control group did not receive any training.‌ the Rozen et al (2000) Sexual Functioning Questionnaire was distributed among married women and the subjects in the experimental group were trained in temperament for eight sessions and the control group did not receive any training. Data were analyzed by analysis of covariance. The findings of this study show a significant difference between the experimental and control groups in sexual function and its components: sexual desire, psychological stimulation, moisture, orgasm, satisfaction, and pain (8.92- 61.48  ,P <0.05). Therefore, it can be concluded that temperament training has increased and improved sexual function in married women in Isfahan, and couple therapists can use this approach to improve marital relationships and increase the quality of female sexual function.
