The Sexual Pressure Scale for Women-Revised (SPSW-R) is an 18-item measure that aims to better understand stereotypical expectations during sex and to gain a broader context of a gender hierarchy that impacts an individual’s expectations in sexual behavior. This is an adaptation of the 19-item Sexual Pressure Scale (Jones, 2006) and covers 4 subscales: Show Trust, Women's Sex Role, Men Expect Sex and Sex Coercion.
High Psychometric Score
Items asking about experiences:
Never - 1

Sometimes - 3
