Since December 2019, the COVID-19 pandemic has known a rapid and distressing spread. Little is known about the sexual impact on infected patients. However, several studies have reported a significant psychological impact on the population.The objective of our study is to assess the impact of the COVID19 pandemic on the sexuality of individuals who have been infected with the virus.Our study focuses on a population of 50 Moroccan patients initially declared to have COVID-19, using a multiple choice questionnaire on sexuality before and after infection with the virus. All participants were part of a couple in which at least one of the two partners had been infected with SARS-CoV-2.The results showed that all subjects were sexually active before their infection, of which 20% were dissatisfied with their sex life. At the time of our study, 78% of the recovered patients had not resumed sexual activity. 60% said they were anxious about having sex and 81% said the pandemic had altered their sex life. Only one patient reports an increase in libido and an improvement in the quality of orgasm. A couple reported having resumed sexual activity but with a change in their relationships.Anxiety and fear of infecting the other are major concerns, which affect the resumption of normal sexual activity and which sometimes lead to a change in sexual practices.
