This classic and invaluable reference Handbook, written for sex researchers and their students, has now been completely revised in a new edition complete with its own companion website. It remains the only easy and efficient way for researchers to learn about, evaluate, and compare instruments that have previously been used in sex research.

In this third edition of the Handbook, 218 scales, complete with full descriptions and psychometric data, are made available, with additional information provided at the companion website for this volume.


"The Handbook of Sexuality Related Measures is a "must have" for anybody who conducts research related to sexuality. It is a comprehensive compendium of all the important measures in the area. The Handbook provides not only the questionnaire items but also full information about each scale’s psychometric properties in a format that is accessible and easy to use."

—E. Sandra Byers, Psychology, University of New Brunswick

"Having a new edition of this handbook is like having a new infusion of energy and resources for sex researchers and students. It is so valuable to have so many well validated measures in one collection. It serves an important educational purpose in terms of operationalizing the concepts studied in our field, and it is very practical as well."

—Betsy Crane, Sociology, Widener University

"The new updated, revised, and expanded third edition provides the reader with an even more valuable resource, and the related companion website moves the project into the twenty-first century. This is an invaluable research tool for anyone interested in the scholarly and scientific study of human sexuality, and it represents an awesome undertaking on the part of the editors."

—Howard J. Ruppel, Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality
