Synopsis: 
The correlates of psychosexual phenomenology in the Jamaican population using the seven questions of the Jamaica Personality Disorder Inventory (JPDI) are presented. More than one-fifth of the sample reported some degree of heterosexual and homosexual dysfunction. Significant levels of multiple sexual partnerships and feelings of infidelity in a swathe of Jamaican people reveal underlying psychosexual anxiety and guilt, poor impulse control and difficulties with partner intimacy.
