Sexual dysfunctions are a highly prevalent problem. It is necessary to have instruments
adapted to the Colombian population in order to evaluate their sexual functioning
because to date none of them have been validated. The aim of this study was to adapt and
validate the Massachusetts General Hospital-Sexual Functioning Questionnaire in Colombian
population, and compare it with a similar sample from Spain. Two different samples were used
in this study. On one hand, a sample of expert judges who performed the cultural adaptation and
the evaluation of the scale, and on the other hand, a second end sample of 1117 participants
-men and women of both nationalities- who answered the questionnaire -together with othersthrough
a virtual platform. Some of the items were adjusted based on the initial results of the
evaluation by the expert judges. Cronbach’s alpha between .81 and .92 were obtained after
the application of the test. The psychometric properties of the scale are adequate and this
instrument properly correlates with other criterion variables. Construct validity was evaluated
using factorial invariance. The unidimensional configural model for men (RMSEA = .000; CFI = 1)
and for women (RMSEA = .048, CFI = .997) had an adequate fit, and a level of strict invariance
was also reached. Screening can be performed with this first validated scale in order to evaluate
