Sexual self-disclosure is one of the most intimate forms of self-disclosure. It is the degree to which a member of a romantic dyad discloses sexual aspects to his or her partner. Surprisingly, there is little research on this type of disclosure, compared to the voluminous research on other topics in self-disclosure. This is particularly surprising since past literature has found that sexual self-disclosure is correlated with people’s sexual satisfaction. Past research has not looked into whether culture shapes people’s willingness to engage in sexual self-disclosure. In different cultures, people should sexually disclose to different levels and with different content. Current theories on the influence of culture on self-disclosure provide possible directions for studying the interplay between sexual self-disclosure and culture differences.
