Abstract

Introduction: Sexual arousability is defined as an ability to react with sexual arousal in response to external and internal stimuli. Sexual arousablity measuring is important for research purposes and for diagnostics of sexual dysfunctions. Self-assessment techniques can be used for such measurement. Due to absence of Polish-language psychometric tools dedicated for sexual arousability measuring we adapted Sexual Arousability Inventory.

Material and methods: Psychometrical characteristic of Polish version of SAI (SAI-PL) was examined in the study with 132 participants (42 females, 90 males) and validation with behavioral factors was performed on the group of 39 heterosexual males consuming pornography on the weekly basis.

Results: SAI-PL has almost identical characteristics as original SAI (high internal consistency, the same factorial structure and high reliability).

Conclusions: Polish version of SAI can be successfully used for research purposes as well as in clinical setups.
