Monash University Women’s Health Program Female Sexuality Satisfaction Questionnaire© (Monash WHP FSSQ)

The Monash WHP FSSQ is a 12‐item, self‐administered questionnaire which can be completed in around one to two minutes. The questionnaire was developed as an instrument with which researchers can evaluate the nature and quality of the female sexual experience within 24 hours of a sexual event. Thus factors that might acutely influence sexual function can be evaluated.

Other important features are that: 

  • The questionnaire evaluates a single sexual experience
  • The sexual experience does not need to involve a partner
  • The sexual experience can be a heterosexual or same sex experience
  • The WHP FSSQ been validated in premenopausal and postmenopausal women

Thus this instrument represents is answerable for all women, regardless of sexual preference, menopausal status and partner status and can be used to assess the change in sexual function in response to an acute intervention rather than assessing changes over weeks or months.
