Resumen

Se realizó una investigación cuantitativa, descriptiva, correlacional de corte transversal, para describir la posible relación entre la ansiedad social, la adicción a internet y al cibersexo, con la percepción de bienestar subjetivo y de malestar físico. Participaron 214 adultos jóvenes, con edades entre los 18 y 30 años, de la ciudad de Bogotá, Colombia. Los resultados evidenciaron un nivel bajo en el comportamiento de las variables y relaciones significativas, con diferencias en función del sexo, siendo en las mujeres la relación significativa y positiva entre la adicción al internet y la adición al cibersexo con la percepción de malestar físico, y en los hombres, significativa y negativa entre la adicción al internet y al cibersexo con la percepción de bienestar subjetivo. Se discuten los resultados y sus implicaciones, para el mejoramiento del bienestar y la calidad de vida del adulto joven.
