The COVID-19 Pandemic and the Effects on Sexual Behaviors

Emily Corrigan

Presentation Time: 1:30pm – 2:00pm


The purpose of this study is to explore the effects on sexuality during the COVID-19 pandemic by investigating the correlations between a person’s knowledge and perception of COVID-19 and their sexual behaviors. We hypothesize that desire and frequency of sex will be decreased in people who consider themselves “high-risk” or are fearful of COVID-19, have depression or feel lonely as a result of the pandemic, and will utilize more sexual behaviors that avoid close-contact such as technology-mediated behaviors.
