The aim of this study was to examine the reliability and the validity of The Multidimensional Sexuality Questionnaire (Snell, Fisher & Walters, 1993) on a Croatian sample. The effect gender and age have on questionnaire results and some aspects of sexual behaviour was also investigated. The study involved 290 participants (45% male, 55% female) with the average age of 30,5 years. The Multidimensional Sexuality Questionnaire has 12 scales. The reliability of the scales has proved satisfactory. High intercorelations of the scales indicated a need for factor analysis. Factor analysis revealed two independent factors interpreted as positive and negative aspects of sexuality. Their correlations with criterion variables (importance of sex life, satisfaction with sex life, satisfaction with quality of life) suggested satisfactory criterion validity of the questionnaire. The investigation of gender and age differences revealed higher results on positive aspects of sexuality for men and younger participants of the study. Also, men compared to women engaged in first sexual intercourse at an earlier age, were more sexually active, had more sexual partners throughout life and were more prone to sexual infidelity, one night stands and unprotected sex with strangers. Men attached more importance to sex and were more satisfied with their sex life compared to women. Younger participants compared to older participants of the study engaged in first sexual intercourse at an earlier age, were more prone to one night stands and were more satisfied with their sex life.
