I want to explore if the amount of time (usage) spent on the Social Media IV1, with two levels , one is light and the other is heavy use, Iv2, body image with negative and positive levels, Iv3 self-esteem with levels of high and low, and my DV is sexual satisfaction. If these variables have an effect on sexual satisfaction and I need to determine my sample size! please send me if you can help me! SOS!

It is not clear if you are investigating sexual satisfaction on a gender basis (men vs women or individually).This can lead to a vast change in your outcome.
Sexuality, especially sexual intimacy (affective) is highly subjective as individuals or clusters (male or female or even LGBT) has different definitions and different functions.
The analysis of factors affecting sexual satisfaction regardless of for example the women sociocultural context, religious beliefs, and personal attitudes is undoubtedly inefficient, unscientific and irrational. This is problematic as you need to evaluate across your location of study (socio cultural context).
You could also look at qualitative studies or triangulation on sexual satisfaction on the understanding from gender perspective of sexual satisfaction based on their sociocultural contexts and you probably want to investigate different dimensions of sexual satisfaction in gay/straight men/women.
The aim(RO and RQ) of you study could be to explore affecting factors on sexual satisfaction based on an overview in scientific database. This needs to be clarified wit a strong research problem and theoretical underpinning. Within committed relationships, a wide range of factors may challenge or facilitate sexual satisfaction. The aim of your study must be to clarify which individual, partner, and partnership-related aspects of a sexual relationship are crucial for the prediction of sexual satisfaction. The study should included data of a representative sample of couples from the general population (e.g. . 1000 or more) to present a robust conclusion.
You may want to try using the the actor-partner interdependence model to estimate actor and partner effects. The calculate the overall predictors to explain % of outcome variance. Actor effects could be an important factor for sexual function, sexual distress, frequency of sexual activity, desire discrepancy, sexual initiative, sexual communication, sociosexual orientation, masturbation, and life satisfaction. While gender-specific partner effects might not be highly significant in these types of studies (sexual function and sexual distress), neither age, nor relationship duration are also significant predictors.
Outcomes such as sexual satisfaction has a very important role in creating marital satisfaction and any defect in sexual satisfaction is significantly associated with risky sexual behaviors, serious mental illness, social crimes and ultimately divorce.
The main objective of your study is to demystify sexual satisfaction and to clarify which aspects of a sexual relationship contribute most to satisfying sexual lives within your population.
Previous research on sexual satisfaction is that most predictors, such as sexual communication or sexual function have been examined in relative isolation, without taking other possible predictors into consideration.
To overcome limitations of previous studies that used convenience samples, restricted their sample to certain age groups or target populations or investigated certain predictor variables in isolation. To investigate the relative significance of different of sexuality-related factors of sexual satisfaction, you may want to include wide ranging predictors, namely sexual function and distress, frequency of sexual activities alone or with a partner as well as sexual desire discrepancy, sexual communication, and sociosexual attitudes. These factors can be employed to estimate the relevance of personal sexual attitudes and solitary sexual behaviors in comparison to factors that require a sexual partner. In addition to these sexuality related factors, you may want to included life satisfaction to control for a more general well-being, and other predictors (i.e., passage of time, household income) included to control for and to investigate their relevance for sexual satisfaction on an exploratory basis. Good luck.

I need to have a poll made on my hypothesis about the male minis (serial anejaculatory little orgasms).

The issue is that my poll concerns the whole humanity, which makes the calculators totally inefficient.
There must be some agreement amongst researchers about that issue.

If so are you aware of the $100k prize available for a cure of the sexual side effects that remain after the use and withdrawal of these drugs?
"The problems affect both men and women and cause genital numbness, pleasureless or weak orgasm, impotence, loss of sex drive and other difficulties. They can start after only a few days exposure to these medications and in some cases persist for decades.
We want to change this.
On September 12, 2017, we launched our campaign to raise $100,000 for a Prize which will be offered to anyone who finds a cure for PSSD, PFS or PRSD. This could be a doctor, a scientist, a drug company, a member of the public – anyone."
There has been a number of suggestions that are worth following. Seems like there might be a link to Vit D or anandamide to reduction of symptoms.

I recently added a project regarding this question.
Basically sex is these days mostly not related to reproduction. Instead it fulfills other function. People have sex for enjoyment, out of love, in order to relax or to have certain experiences involving satisfaction or even something spiritual.
In that regard an orgasm, which may be a peak orgasm (following the stages publishes by Masters and Johnson), is possibly the goal but not the only reason such an experience is wanted and looked for. People may want sex for many other aspects of a sexual experience.
Whereas males may be less interested in a broader experience than females and females even need that part of sexuality to reach a peak orgasm, females may also have a greater variety in term of both what contributes to excitement and what is experienced as orgiastic, fulfilling etc.
Sexual behaviour is arguably more related to consciousness than to mere physiology. People make conscious choices to have sex, use contraceptives and engage in different forms of sexual activities and experiences. There may be a lot of unconsciousness involved as well. People may be driven to have a lot of sex, because they are addicted or need it for relaxation, to be able to sleep etc. They may want it to fulfill psychological needs that they are not (fully) aware of.

I'd say above all Alan Dixson (2012. Primate Sexuality). It covers a huge amount of topics, from anatomy to physiology, hormones, and brain areas in a comparative perspective. Another book by him is the 2009 one (Sexual Selection and the Origins of Human Mating Systems), but i found many topics already discussed in "primate sexuality".
Roy Levin wrote a lot on male and female's orgasm and the like. Then, you can check also for "Komisaruk & Whipple (2011). Non-genital orgasms". In Levin you can find references regarding the "upsuck theory" of the female orgasm due to oxytocin which would promote fertilization.
As for the "Value" of orgasm in an evolutionary perspective, I recently came into few people such as Pham and Schackelford, who were involved in why humans perform oral sex and —indeed— the value of it, dealing with mate retention, sperm competition, infidelity detection, and so on.
Good luck!

Vaginal orgasm and G-spot have no scientific basis. Gräfenberg did not describe a G-spot in his 1950 article. The supposed G-spot should not be identified with Gräfenberg’s name. The claims made in the numerous articles written by Whipple, Komisaruk, Jannini, Buisson, Ostrzenski, O’Connell, and others have no scientific basis. The use of such non-scientifically-based terms by researchers and scientists serves as the fuel for the evolution of myths, which are then amplified by mass-media and become popular and well-accepted ones. Some medical professionals take advantage of these myths and of the expectations (or the distress) of women influenced by the myth for their own personal benefit. G-spot does not exist: is it a scietific fraud? Vagina has no anatomical structure that can cause an orgasm. The majority of women worldwide do not have orgasms during intercourse. Female orgasm is possible in all women, always with effective stimulation of the female erectile organs during masturbation, cunnilingus, partner masturbation, and also during vaginal/anal intercourse simply by stimulating the clitoris with a finger. Vaginal orgasm does not exist: is it a scientific fraud?

Answer
Why would you think they are a Fraud?  A certain percentage of women can experience vaginal orgasms.  The mechanism, physiology, and anatomy of inducing them varies.  The ability to experience vaginal orgasm is a specific characteristic of some women (15-30%)

The hypersensitivity is usually so intense that friction on the glans can become painful.
Is there any other area of the body where such hypersensitivity occurs from physiological ( not pathological) stimuli?
It is claimed that the hypersenstivity stops further coital movements and thus helps maintain the sperm in the vagina.
Relevant answer
Answer
Roy, I would question the assertion that 'after orgasm the clitoral and penile glans become hypersensitive to friction'. This is true for some people but not all. There are multi-orgasmic women and men who enjoy continued genital stimulation to achieve additional orgasms. I also know of women who require no genital stimulation to achieve orgasm. My hunch is that the hypersensitivity is dependent on the nature of the stimulation, at least for women. As for other body areas,  anecdotal reports from women suggest that the nipples also become hypersensitive.
