Title: A Cross-Cultural Investigation of Satisfaction with Sex Life Among Emerging Adults
Issue Date: 2015
Abstract: Despite increasing interest in psychology of subjective well-being, little is known about satisfaction with sex life outside of western countries. This study investigated cross-cultural similarities and differences in the levels and correlates of sex satisfaction among emerging adults in Angola, Brazil, Macao, and Portugal. Nine hundred and sixty-one college students participated in the research. The majority of participants in the samples reported being satisfied with their sex live. The mean scores of the Angolan, Brazilian and Portuguese participants surpassed those of the Macanese participants. No sex differences were found in sex satisfaction across cultural groups. Predictors of sex satisfaction tended to show consistency across the components of subjective well-being. Findings are discussed within the scope of the literature and directions for future investigation are suggested.
