The objective was to assess the incremental validity, internal consistency and temporal stability of the New Sexual Satisfaction Scale short version (NSSS-S) in Spanish-speaking Latino adults. The sample included 401 university students (232 women and 169 men), sexually active, 18 to 38 years old (M = 20.83; SD = 2.66). A subsample of 76 participants answered the scale four weeks after the first application. Confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) identified a two-factor structure. The invariance

The internal consistencyreliability of the scale and its subscales was excellent for both men and women (ω = .89 - .95) and the temporal stability, four weeks after the first application, was adequate (r = .74; ICC = .85). Finally, men scored higher in overall sexual satisfaction and the Ego-Centered subscale, but not in the Partner -and Sexual Activity-Centered subscale, as compared to women. To conclude, the NSSS-S is a psychometrically appropriate scale to measure sexual satisfaction in Spanish-speaking Latino adults.
