RIBEIRO, Sílvia; NEGREIROS, Jorge; OLIVEIRA, Joana  e  TEIXEIRA, Pedro. Substance use and sexual behavior survey: a validation study. Psic., Saúde & Doenças [online]. 2015, vol.16, n.2, pp.207-216. ISSN 1645-0086.  http://dx.doi.org/10.15309/15psd160207.

Working with drug addicts we frequently face patients complains on sexual sphere .Literature doesn't elucidate about the impact of cognitive factors. Aiming to enable a better understanding of the relation between psychoactive substance use and sexuality we proposed to adapt and validate the Substance Use and Sexual Behavior Survey (SUSBS) questionnaire. We studied 488 drug addict subjects, outpatients of the public drug addiction Portuguese centers. Exploratory factor analysis indicated a four-component structure we termed:  Inhibitor impact of substance of abuse in sexuality, Indissociability of sexuality and substance use, Enhancer impact of substance in sexuality, Substance use favoring risky sexual behaviors, explained approximately 65% of the total variance. The confirmatory factor analysis exhibited overall fits. The results suggested that the Portuguese version of the SUSBS has adequate psychometric properties. We present a discussion in terms of the questionnaire utility, recommend its use for clinical and research purposes.
