Abstracts
The paper describes the construction process and evaluation of metric characteristics for the New Scale of Sexual Satisfaction (NSSZ). A review of existing sexual satisfaction measures revealed the need for a new instrument which would not be limited by gender, sexual orientation or the current intimate status of the individual. The New Scale of Sexual Satisfaction is based on the importance of sexual activities, sexual exchanges, sexual feelings, sexual focus and emotional closeness. The construction and initial evaluation of the scale was conducted on six independent samples, two of which were students, the remaining including members of the general population. The analysis of main components revealed the existence of two mutually related dimensions of sexual satisfaction: the self-focus factor and the partner-focus factor of sexual activities. The analysis of internal consistency of the two formed subscales consisting of ten items each, as well as the entire 20 item scale, revealed a high reliability of results independent of the type of sample, age, gender and sexual orientation. The paper includes data on the stability of scale results and the relationship with measures of similar constructs. A short form of the scale is also suggested (12 items) which specifically covers all five theoretical dimensions. The reliability and validity indicators of the short form are comparable to those of the full version.
