Abstract [en]

Describes the phenomenon termed, "First-time parents' sexual relationship". The qualitative descriptive phenomenological method was applied for the material from the interviews. Ten couples (aged 24–42 yrs) were interviewed separately and undisturbed on a single occasion, when the first baby was nine-months-old. The results indicated that the essence of the phenomenon described in this study pertained to sexual desire. The significance of the concept differed among parents. Some couples lacked the time and energy for each other due to the presence of the baby but compensated for their desires with reciprocal tenderness alternating with that shown to the baby. Some couples assigned time actively for each other which enabled them to enjoy their sexual desire. One couple was forced to control their sexual desires due to severe mucus infection. However, this couple compensated with caressing and thereby confirmed each other emotionally and sexually. Certain mothers longed for desire or emotional confirmation. These couples lacked the ability to assign time and show interest reciprocally, as well as an ineffective communication. Their relationships were characterized by misunderstandings and unarticulated demands.
