Abstract

Based on a survey of 133 Muslim college students in Yogyakarta found 75,9% of students had accessed cyber pornography. Islam has explicitly prohibits people from approaching pornography, this causes psychological conflicts in students because of differences in beliefs and actions, then causes anxiety as the characteristics of low subjective well-being. Religion is one of the factors that improve subjective wellbeing. Islam commands people to repent. Self-control helps a person refrain from making the same mistakes. This recent study used a correlational method and multiple regression analysis. The subject of this study was 102 bachelor students at Islamic universities in Yogyakarta. Measurements used the SWLS (a=0,819), PANAS: Positive Affect (a=0,797) and Negative Affect (a=0,877), Brief Self-control Scale (a=0,692), and Repentance Scale (a=0,841). The results of the data analysis using Pearson Correlation Bivariate shows the correlation between Repentance and Self-control r=0,505 sig(p)<0,001; Repentance and Subjective well-being r=0,366 sig(p)<0,001; Self-control and Subjective well-being r=0,574 sig(p)<0,001. There is a correlation between Repentance, Self-control, and Subjective Well-being of students at Islamic universities in Yogyakarta. Multiple regression analyses self-control as a moderator.
