The impact of acculturation and Latina values on sexual satisfaction and relationship satisfaction
This study examined the effect of acculturation and Latina values on sexual satisfaction and relationship satisfaction in Latinas (N = 49). Women who identified as Latina were asked for their voluntary participation and answered a survey that measured their level of acculturation, relationship satisfaction, sexual satisfaction, and Latina values. Regression analyses were conducted to explore the relationship between Latina values, acculturation, relationship satisfaction and sexual satisfaction. The primary researcher hypothesized that acculturation would moderate the relationship between Latina values and sexual satisfaction (an interaction effect) such that Latinas of high congruency of values and acculturation would report higher levels of sexual satisfaction than those with low congruency. Although there was no evidence of an interaction effect, a main effect was found for frequency of sexual intercourse and sexual satisfaction reported in participants.
