TOMAS CANOVAS, Lidia; MORAL DE CALATRAVA, Paloma  and  CANTERAS JORDANA, Manuel. Gender violence within the different sexual orientations in Spain. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2019, vol.18, n.53, pp.1-18.  Epub Oct 14, 2019. ISSN 1695-6141.


To determine if sexual orientation influences within the domestic violence in the different sexual orientations without considering the biological sex.

Material and method:

Two-way ANOVAs were performed from two tests, WAST screening and ISA diagnostic and a factorial analysis. the collected sample consisted of 454 subjects of which 156 were homosexual, 265 heterosexual, 30 bisexual and 2 did not answer.


The four identified violence (interpersonal, social, physical and psychological) did not show significant differences in relation to sexual orientation regardless of biological sex, in the same way violence was observed within the couple as marginal.


Violence within the couple was observed within all partner structures, so violence was independent of sexual orientation.

Keywords : intimate partner violence; gender violence; sexual behavior.
