Resumen

La pandemia por coronavirus (COVID-19) trajo secuelas adversas en varias áreas del funcionamiento de las personas, entre ellas económicas, laborales, familiares y académicas. Un área que no se ha investigado en Puerto Rico es el efecto de los encierros en la conducta sexual de las parejas. Los objetivos del presente estudio fueron: (1) analizar si existen diferencias estadísticamente significativas entre la satisfacción sexual de las personas participantes antes y durante la cuarentena; (2) examinar si se han producido cambios significativos en la calidad de las relaciones de pareja durante la cuarentena; y (3) evaluar si la ansiedad y la ansiedad por COVID-19 predicen la satisfacción sexual de las personas participantes durante la cuarentena. La muestra consistió de 392 personas adultas en su mayoría mujeres (87.5%). Los resultados reflejaron una disminución en la calidad de la relación de pareja y en la satisfacción sexual durante la cuarentena. La relación entre ansiedad por COVID-19 y satisfacción sexual durante la cuarentena fue significativa, baja y negativa. A pesar que algunas diferencias resultaron ser estadísticamente significativas, una mirada a dichas diferencias resalta que a nivel práctico y clínico las diferencias fueron mínimas. Se discuten recomendaciones e implicaciones para la clínica y consejería.
