Sexual disorders in Indonesia Islamic boarding schools have been extensively studied. However, there have been no researches that correlate them with right-wing authoritarianism. In this study, right-wing authoritarianism was hypothesized to correlate with the four dimensions of sexual disorders of Garos Sexual Behavior Inventory. This study used correlational design with Spearman’s correlation data analysis. There were 271 study participants (140 males, 131 females; Mage = 15.93 years old; SDage = 1.69 years) taken using purposive sampling technique. The research results showed negative correlations between right-wing authoritarianism and sexual stimulation, sexual obsession as well as sexual permissiveness. However, there is no correlation between authoritarianism and sexual discordance. This study does not recommend increasing the level of right-wing authoritarianism based on reasons presented in the Discussion and Conclusion sections.
