Introduction: Prevention of sex–linked diseases, reduction of elective abortions and physical and mental effects followed by abortion, the control of population growth and consequent problems signify the importance of pre-selection of the neonatal sex. The purpose of this research is to survey the relationship between neonatal sex and sexual relations of the couples. Methods and Materials: This descriptive study was conducted on 346 pregnant women referring to Health centers in Sabzevar in (2003). They were selected through convenient non-probability sampling. Relevant data were privately obtained through face-to-face interview. They were not aware of the sex of their neonate. Chi-square was utilized for data analysis. Results: The findings revealed that couples' satisfaction of sexual relations rendered more frequent male births (p=0.009). Also, increased libido in men (p=0.039) and less orgasm frequency in women enhanced chances of female births (p=0.006). Conclusion: Considering various factors affecting the choice of neonatal sex and the role of psychosocial factors, couples' sexual knowledge can help couples achieve the desired gender and improve the quality of sexual relations.
