Fragebogen zu sexuellen Vorlieben
The FSV measures both sexual activity and sexual interest and experience. The test construction is based on basic research on sexuality (Sydow, 1991, 1993; Sydow & Seiferth, 2015). The items were generated on the basis of the Sexual Interaction Inventory (SII), the questionnaire on sexual behaviour (FzSV) and the questionnaire on measuring sexual interest (FMSI). It consists of 64 items, which are used for self-assessment as well as for external assessment (assessment of the presumed sexual experience of the other partner). In order to assess the interrater reliability, the extent of agreement between the data of the two partners of a couple was determined by correlating the respective items. With the exception of the data on anal intercourse (r = .34), relatively high correlation rates were found between r = .52 and r = 1.00. Reliability: No data provided. Validity: Correlations to the "Tenderness" scale of the Partnership Questionnaire (PFB) were calculated to verify validity. The correlation between FSV and PFB was only significant in the first three months after birth (r = .33).
