ABSTRACT
The objective of this study was to develop the Sexual Initiation Scale (SIS), a self-report measure of sexual initiation strategies and factors facilitating initiation behaviours in long-standing marital relationships, and to examine the psychometric properties of the SIS. The first study established the content validity of the SIS. The second study examined the factorial structure, the reliability and the construct validity of the SIS. The findings showed good factorial structure and acceptable levels of reliability and construct validity. Directions for future research and clinical implications of the SIS are discussed.
