RODRIGUEZ SALAZAR, Tania  y  RODRIGUEZ MORALES, Zeyda. Intimacy and couple relationships during the COVID-19 pandemic in Guadalajara. Espiral (Guadalaj.) [online]. 2020, vol.27, n.78-79, pp.215-264.  Epub 12-Feb-2021. ISSN 1665-0565.

This article analyzes some of the changes and effects that couples have experienced in the metropolitan area of Guadalajara (México) after a period of confinement of almost two months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly in their sexual life and in the use of affective technologies. This analysis is based on a Virtual Survey on romantic relationships in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Final outcomes will show that the changes and effects on the selected topics are stronger among young people, couples with fewer years in a relationship and those who, due to the confinement, have functioned as long-distance couples. Likewise, they will confirm that full-time domestic intimacy has implied the recovery of time, conversation and vitality for their relationships, as well as mobile devices expanding the opportunities for interactions outside home and creating interferences in the couples’ interactions.

Palabras llave : COVID-19 pandemic; intimacy; couple relationships; affective technologies; sexuality.
