The aim of the work was to study the relationship between the level of sexual satisfaction, the differentiation of the "I" and the characteristics of the father's image in women. The empirical study involved 1074 women aged 18 to 57 years. Methods were used: The method of semantic differential Petrenko VF , an Eysenck sex settings checklist, translated into Russian and a modified version of the paint form of the Differentiation Questionnaire I Drake J.D. (2008). As a result of the study, a correlation was found between the level of sexual satisfaction and the features of perception of the image of the father. Women with a higher level of sexual satisfaction rate their father more, and also perceive him to be stronger, orderly, comfortable and active. Also, a relationship was found between the characteristics of sexual behavior and the features of perception of the image of the father. Women who abstain from sexual passion do not support the topic of sex, who feel insecure about the opposite sex, are embarrassed when talking about sex, experiencing the fear of sexual relations, assessing the father less, seeing him as weak and not comfortable. Women who negatively relate to certain types of sex, see the father as weak, simple and not comfortable. Women who need special conditions to feel sexual arousal, low appreciate the father and see him not comfortable. Women who are prone to sexual aggression see their father as active. Women who value the spiritual qualities of a partner more than sexual contact with them, consider their father an important person in their lives. Women with a stronger I position, perceive the father strong, orderly, complex and comfortable. Women, who are characterized by a merger, see their father as not comfortable. Women who run to emotional ruptures, lower estimate the father and see it as chaotic and not comfortable. Women with a high level of emotional reactivity, see the father as weak, simple and not comfortable.
