A quantitative, descriptive and correlational research was done, with Cross - sectional design, with the aim to describe the possible significant relationship between the social anxiety, internet use addiction and Cybersex addiction, with the perception of subjective well-being and physical discomfort. Participants were 214 young adults, women and men with ages between 18 to 30 years old; all of them from the city of Bogotá, Colombia. The results showed low level measures in all of the variables with significant relationships between them. Also, showed significant differences depending on gender. For women, the relationship was stronger and positive between the internet and cybersex addiction and their perception of physical discomfort, for men was stronger and negative between internet and cybersex addiction and their subjective well-being perception. The results are discussed and its implications, in order to improve the well-being and the quality of life of the young adults.
