Abstract

The primary objective of this study was to investigate the effects of sexual shame on self-esteem and well-being. Additionally, the study aimed to recognise public experience of sexual shame. The study used a quantitative approach, via a cross sectional design by implementing an online survey using questionnaires: The Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale, The Kyle Inventory Sexual Shame Scale (KISS) and The Well-Being Questionnaire (W-BQ12). Sample consisted of 118 participants, 20 male and 88 female, aged between 19 and 66 years. Results found a significant relationship between both hypotheses presented in the study. Results also found there to be a significant result between age and self-esteem and well-being. Results showed that older participants had higher self-esteem.
