Background and Aim: The hypersexual disorder is described as multiple unsuccessful attempts to control or diminish the amount of time spent on engaging in sexual fantasies, urges, and behaviors in response to dysphoric mood states or stressful life events. The purpose of the present research was to determine the validity, reliability and factor structure of the Hypersexual Behavior Inventory (HBI) for use for students, developed by Reid and colleagues.
Materials and Methods: In this descriptive study, 300 male students of Azarbaijan Shahid Madani University were selected by cluster random sampling on the basis of school and field of study. Data were collected using the HBI, and its reliability and validity were determined using Cronbach’s alpha and confirmatory factor analysis (CFA).
Results: The reliability coefficients obtained for control, consequences, coping components and total scale were 0.82, 0.80, 0.86 and 0.90, respectively, which showed good reliability. In addition, the results of factor analysis showed a statistically significant association between observed variables (questions) and the latent structures (factors), indicating an appropriate/desirable fitness for the three-factor structure in the sample (GFI = 0.91, AGFI= 0.88, CFI= 098, RMSEA= 0.057).
Conclusion: The Hypersexual Behavior Inventory is a valid and reliable tool to be used for the students, and, therefore, the use of this tool in future research is recommended.
