Background and Aim: A common problem among married women is related to sexual function. A large percentage of complaints by women referring to consultation centers are about sexual problems. Determination of factors influencing sexual function can help us to find suitable strategies to solve the problem. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of acceptance and practice variables and rumination on womenchr('39')s sexual function mediated by stress tolerance.
Methods and Materials: The statistical population included all women referring to clinics in Isfahan, Iran in 2018. A sample of 120 were selected using the availability sampling method and completed the  Arizona Sexual Experience (ASex), Simons and Gahr (2005) Distress Tolerance, Bond et al. (2011), Acceptance and Action, and Watson and Harris (2008) Rumination Victim questionnaires. The data were analyzed based on the structural equation method, the software being the smart PLS software.
Results: The stress tolerance variable could play a role as a mediating variable among sexual performance, commitment, acceptance and ruminant variables (P<0.05). Further analysis of the data showed that commitment, acceptance and rumination were associated with sexual function and distress tolerance (p <0.01) and that distress tolerance could affect womenchr('39')s sexual functioning (p <0.01).
Conclusion: Based on the findings, it can be said that women’s sexual function is influenced by a variety of factors, including acceptance and action, rumination and distress tolerance.
