The Sexual Satisfaction Questionnaire (KSS) serves to measure the degree of sexual satisfaction achieved with a particular partner. It is a three-factor tool (measurement of intimacy, caresses and sex) consisting of 10 items that completely meet the requirements of standardization. The results of the factor validity analysis indicate that for the description of sexual satisfaction measured by the KSS questionnaire, the three-factor model is the most accurate – the aspects of satisfaction distinguished in the model are strongly correlated. The three dimensions of satisfaction describe intimacy in a romantic relationship, satisfaction with sex life, and satisfaction with mutual physical contacts other than sex.

APPLICABILITY: The questionnaire can be used in both individual and group examinations of people of both sexes who are in formal or informal relationships. It is an aid in both academic research and diagnostic and clinical practice.
