Abstract

Because of the association that researchers have recently delineated between compulsive sexual behavior and the Human Immunodeficiency Virus, Sexually Transmitted Infections, and drug abuse, it is paramount that a psychometrically sound measure of compulsive sexual behavior is made available to all healthcare professionals working in disease prevention and other areas. This article reports the findings from a psychometric analysis of the Compulsive Sexual Behavior Inventory (CSBI) in a sample of 482 racially and ethnically diverse men and women. The current study provides further evidence for the score reliability and the score validity of the CSBI in this sample. Construct-related validity was assessed using the multi-trait multi-method approach. These analyses extend previous findings for the psychometric properties of the CSBI in a more diversified sample.
