Arizona Sexual Experiences Scale

Although sexual dysfunction is common in psychiatric patients, quantification of sexual dysfunction is limited by the paucity of validated, user-friendly scales. In order to address this problem, the Arizona Sexual Experiences Scale (ASEX), a five-item rating scale, was developed and published in:

McGahuey CA, Gelenberg AJ, Laukes CA, Moreno FA, Delgado PL. The Arizona Sexual Experience Scale (ASEX): Reliability and Validity. Journal of Sex & Marital Therapy, 26:25-40, 2000.

The ASEX scale is copyrighted by the Arizona Board of Regents. Please contact the Psychiatry Regulatory Coordinator at Thank you for your interest!
