CASTILLO HERNANDEZ, Isaura  and  MONCADA JIMENEZ, José. Relationship between physical activity level and body and sexual satisfaction in Costa Rican college students. CPD [online]. 2013, vol.13, n.1, pp.15-24. ISSN 1989-5879.

The purpose of the study was to describe the relationship between body image satisfaction (BS), sexual satisfaction (SS) and physical activity level (PAL) in a sample of male and female, single and heterosexual Costa Rican students. In the study participated 179 students (39 sedentary females, 40 sedentary males, 34 physically active females and 66 physically active males) with a mean age of 20.4 ± 3 yrs. Participants completed the IPAQ-7, the Sexual Satisfaction Index (SSI) and the Spanish version of the Multidimensional Body Self Relations Questionnaire (MBSRQ). Two-way 2 x 2 independent groups (Gender x PAL) analysis of variance were computed. Results indicated no significant correlations between PAL, BS and the SS in college males and females.

Keywords : Sexual satisfaction; body satisfaction; physical activity level.
