This classic and invaluable reference Handbook of use to sex researchers and their students worldwide 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.


Here's what real professors and researchers have to say about the Handbook:

 

"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

 

"This volume affords easy access to over 200 instruments that measure key sexuality concepts and thereby greatly enhances our ability to study the multiple attitudes and behaviors that comprise our sexual lives. It fills a major need in our field for this knowledge by both students and senior researchers. I know of no other book that achieves this…I recommend it highly."
—Ira L. Reiss, Sociology, University of Minnesota
