Measuring sexual health: preliminary development of a sexual health inventory

Weston M. Edwards, Autumn R. Hamilton, Michael H Miner, Eli Coleman

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The sexual health model is a conceptual framework that posits 10 key components of healthy human sexuality. An initial scale was developed to measure the sexual health as conceptualized by Robinson et al. Building on that research, this article describes the exploratory factor analysis examining the underlying structure of the sexual health model as measured by the sexual health inventory. A shorter-efficient sexual health inventory is presented that might be helpful in research and clinical settings. These preliminary findings reaffirm that the sexual health inventory is measurable and has statistical validity.
