Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND
Human sexual response has scarcely been studied from a dyadic approach.
AIM OF THE STUDY
This project aimed to take a dyadic perspective and demonstrate the role of beliefs and body image dimensions as predictors of self-reported and psychophysiological sexual response among heterosexual couples. It sets out specifically: to develop the Beliefs About Sexual Functioning Scale (BASEF) and adapt the Beliefs About Appearance Scale (BAAS) to Portugal; to understand the impact of sexual functioning on sexual satisfaction from a dyadic perspective; to establish the role of cognitive distraction with body appearance as a mediator between both sexual beliefs or beliefs about appearance and sexual response; and to test a dyadic model of the impact of sexual beliefs and body image on psychophysiological sexual outcomes.
METHOD
Using a cross-sectional, correlational design, data was collected from single informants as well as amorous dyads using mixed methodology (self-report and psychophysiological data).
RESULTS
Both BASEF and BAAS proved to be valid, reliable, gender invariant and suitable for the goals of the project. It was established that the impact of sexual functioning on sexual satisfaction is better explained from a dyadic perspective. Furthermore, it was verified that cognitive distraction mediated the impact of sexual beliefs and body appearance beliefs on sexual functioning. None of the body image variables under study proved to be interdependent among couples or adequate for an interdependence explanatory model of sexual response (self-reported or psychophysiological).
CONCLUSIONS
Results support a relational cognitive model of sexual response, but do not demonstrate interdependence of body image variables.

O papel mediador da distracção cognitiva na relação das crenças sexuais com o funcionamento sexual
Publication year: 2015

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Sexual satisfaction and sexual functioning are complex phenomena influenced by multiple factors. Among these, we highlight cognitive factors in particular sexual beliefs and cognitive distraction during sexual activity. Previous studies have shown that sexual beliefs act as vulnerability factors for sexual dysfunction, while cognitive distraction has a negative impact on sexual functioning and satisfaction. However, there is no empirical research which looks at how these cognitive factors are related to explain the difficulties in sexual functioning. Thus, this study aimed to test the mediating role of cognitive distraction on the relationship between sexual beliefs and sexual functioning. Additionally, the aim was to analyze the relationship of sexual beliefs and cognitive distraction with sexual functioning and satisfaction as well as assess gender differences for the variables under study. In order to achieve the goals mentioned above, we developed an online questionnaire, consisting of several scales. The study sample consists of 426 participants: 129 men and 297 heterosexual women, involved in an exclusive dyadic relationship and commitment.
The results showed that, after controlling for relationship satisfaction, sexual beliefs and cognitive distraction during sexual activity generally showed negative correlations with sexual functioning and sexual satisfaction of participants, , although these were not always significant. Furthermore, the results of hierarchical regression indicated that, after controlling for relational satisfaction, certain sexual beliefs (e.g.: conservatism, anal sex and pain) and cognitive distraction with sexual performance are significant predictors of sexual function,. With regard to gender differences in the content of cognitive distraction, men showed greater cognitive distraction levels with sexual performance than women, while they had higher cognitive distraction levels with body appearance than men. Finally, it was found that cognitive distraction with sexual performance showed a partial mediation between beliefs about anal sex and female sexual functioning. The data show the importance of cognitive factors in sexual functioning and sexual satisfaction, and included suggestions for future studies as well as implications for clinical practice.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
It is theoretically and empirically established that cognitive distraction during sexual activity inhibits men’s sexual arousal response. However little is known about the specific role of cognitive distraction with body appearance during sexual activity as a mediator between body image and women and men’s well know indicators of the quality of sexual activity: sexual arousal and orgasm. In the current ongoing study we assess global body dissatisfaction (Body Attitudes Test- Probst, Vandereycken, Van Coppenolle, &. Vanderlinden, 1995) and assess its impact on two dependent variables body appearance cognitive distraction during sexual activity and sexual response. We expect to find positive associations between all variables under study. Subsequently using structutural equation modelling (SEM) we will test a mediation model where cognitive distraction with body appearance during sexual activity mediates the impact of body dissatisfaction on sexual response. Multigroup analysis will be conducted to compare the fit of the data in men and women. Implications for therapy and research will be discussed.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
A medição de crenças disfuncionais acerca da aparência corporal mostra-se importante com vista a avaliar intervenções sobre o impacto da imagem corporal nos indicadores psicofisiológicos da resposta sexual. No presente trabalho apresenta-se o estudo psicométrico da Beliefs About Appearance Scale (BAAS), um instrumento com 20 itens. A amostra (N = 255) foi constituída por 122 homens (M = 32.18, DP= 9.8) e 133 mulheres (M = 30.45, DP= 9) e a recolha realizada online. Relativamente à validade de constructo, tal como no estudo original, esta escala apresentou uma única dimensão a partir da análise exploratória pelo
método de componentes principais. Apresentou indicadores de validade convergente com a subescala Global Body Dissatisfaction do Body AttitudesTest e de validade divergente com a Sexual Pleasure Scale. A BAAS permitiu diferenciar pessoas satisfeitas de pessoas insatisfeitas com a aparência corporal, um indicador da sua validade discriminativa. A escala apresentou
boa consistência interna (Alfa de Cronbach =.94). Globalmente, os resultados indicaram que a escala apresentou boas propriedades psicométricas. O estudo comparativo dos totais da escala entre mulheres e homens mostrou não existirem diferenças significativas entre os dois grupos, um resultado concordante com os dados mais recentes da literatura acerca da imagem corporal, o qual revela que as preocupações acerca da aparência se têm vindo a generalizar da população feminina para a masculina. Enfatizar-se-á a importância deste instrumento para a avaliação de intervenções sobre o papel da imagem corporal para a resposta sexual.

Beliefs about appearance, cognitive distraction and sexual functioning in men and women: a mediation model based on cognitive theory
Publication year: 2016

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
INTRODUCTION:
Dysfunctional beliefs about body appearance and cognitive distraction from body appearance during sexual activity have been associated with sexual problems, particularly in women. However, there are no studies examining the interplay between these dimensions and the mechanisms by which they affect sexual functioning.
AIM:
To examine the mediating role of cognitive distraction with body appearance on the relation between beliefs about appearance and sexual functioning.
METHODS:
The study sample consisted of 426 heterosexual participants (129 men and 297 women) involved in an exclusive dyadic committed relationship who answered an online questionnaire.
MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES:
The Body Appearance Cognitive Distraction Scale, the Beliefs About Appearance Scale, the International Index of Erectile Function, and the Female Sexual Function Index.
RESULTS:
The findings indicated that cognitive distraction with body appearance fully mediated the relation between beliefs about appearance and sexual functioning in men and women.
CONCLUSION:
The results support the role of beliefs about appearance and cognitive distraction based on body appearance in predicting sexual functioning, reaffirming the role of cognitive models in explaining sexual functioning in men and women.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVE:
To evaluate the psychometric properties of the Beliefs About Appearance Scale (BAAS) in terms of its factorial structure and invariance, reliability, and validity when applied to adults from the community.
METHODS:
Participants consisted of 810 heterosexual Portuguese individuals in a committed relationship. As a confirmatory factor analysis did not support the original structure of the BAAS, an exploratory factor analysis was performed.
RESULTS:
A 12-item version was extracted comprising two dimensions: one personal and the other social. The factorial model depicting this bidimensional structure revealed an adequate fit following confirmatory factor analysis. Multigroup confirmatory factor analyses indicated invariance across gender. Concurrent and discriminant validities and internal consistency were estimated and observed to be adequate.
CONCLUSIONS:
This shorter measure of the BAAS can accurately assess body appearance beliefs and may be used in different research settings and contexts.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT
Dysfunctional sexual beliefs are vulnerability factors for sexual dysfunction. This cross-sectional study aimed to test the mediating role of cognitive distraction on the relationship between dysfunctional sexual beliefs about sexual functioning shared by men and women and sexual function. The authors used a sample of 421 cisgender heterosexual participants involved in a monogamous relationship. The hypothesized mediation model was tested using a bootstrapped cross product of coefficients approach. Results showed a significant negative, indirect effect between dysfunctional sexual beliefs and women's sexual function through cognitive distraction. The discussion of this study highlights the importance of cognitive factors in sexual functioning.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
This study focused on the creation of an Implicit Association Test (IAT) towards condom in a Portuguese sample. Also wanted to know the relationship between implicit and explicit attitudes, through his predictive value to condom use behavior in regular and casual relationships, as well as its past use. The sample consisted of 69 students from the University of Lisbon, 39 in the construction of IAT and 30 in the predictive study. To build the IAT booklets were provided to the participants to infer about the valence and neutrality of words and images, to make a decision about the words and images to use as stimuli in the IAT. For the predictive study, each participant had access to a two sex-scenarios, dating or engagement, and it was asked to imagine in that situation, by reading the scenario. Next, questions were asked about the likelihood of condom use and the level of risk for each situation. Then, the participants completed the Implicit Association Test, measurement scales of explicit attitudes and questions concerning prior use of condoms in past sexual situations. One product of this study was related to the construction of an IAT that can be used to assess the implicit attitudes towards condom. The results showed that it was the explicit attitudes that best predicted condom use both dating as on the engagement. Although the implicit and explicit attitudes have shown positive for the participants, there was no correlation between the two, showing to be related with different attitudinal aspects. The construction of the IAT was critical to understanding implicit attitudes of the sample, but will need to re-test it in future research, since the contrasting category did not maintained its neutral character, unlike what is found in preliminary studies to construction.

Psychometric study of the Beliefs About Appearance Scale (BAAS) in a Portuguese sample

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
According to Cognitive Psychology, Beliefs About Appearance are important for a diversity of body image related clinical conditions (e.g., eating disorders, sexual dysfunctions). The current work presents a validation process of the 20 item, four dimension, Beliefs About Appearance Scale (BAAS-Spangle & Stice, 2001) in a community sample. Firstly we conducted a CFA in the total sample (N=378) to test the original structure and the results did not reveal a good fit for the data (x2/gl= 4,827; CFI=,815; TLI= ,793; RMSEA= ,109; SRMR= ,0687). Therefore we divide the sample in two subsamples (1 and 2). Firstly we conducted a AFE with Varimax rotation (n= 197- Sample 1) that revealed a three factor solution (Factor 1 related to attributions and expectations based on appearance- a= ,854; Factor 2 related to emotional impact of own appearance- a= ,806; and Factor 3 related to interpersonal impact of own appearance- a= ,706) retaining 10 items. Secondly with developed a CFA to test this structure with subsample 2 (n= 181). This CFA revealed a good fit for the data (x2/gl= 1,364; CFI=,985; TLI= ,979; RMSEA= ,048; SRMR= ,043). All Factors (F1,F 2 and F3) presented acceptable values of convergent validity with the subscale Global Body Dissatisfaction of the Body Attitudes Test (Probst, Vandereycken, Van Coppenolle, &. Vanderlinden, 1995) and divergent validity with the Sexual Pleasure Scale (Sanchez, Crocker & Boike, 2005). As for its predictive validity F1 predicts a single item on body dissatisfaction (R2=.20); F2 predicts self-reported BMI (R2=.5), F 1 e F2 predict body appearance cognitive distraction during sexual activity (R2=.28) and F3 did not predict any of the variables considered in the current study. We only found Gender differences in F2. The results indicate that a short version of the BAAS has good psychometric properties in a Portuguese community sample.

Development and initial validation of the Beliefs about Sexual Functioning Scale: A gender invariant measure
Publication year: 2017

http://www.jsm.jsexmed.org/article/S1743-6095(17)30082-6/abstract
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND:
Past research on cognitive models of sexual functioning has focused on sexual beliefs as an important vulnerability factor for sexual dysfunction. However, the existing measurements of sexual beliefs are lengthy and entangle beliefs about sexual functioning with moral beliefs and ideas about sexuality. Furthermore, they have female and male versions, which does not allow for sex comparisons or dyadic research with heterosexual couples.
AIM:
To describe the development and validation of the Beliefs About Sexual Functioning Scale (BASEF), which assesses beliefs about sexual functioning in men and women.
METHODS:
This study included two cross-sectional online studies with adults in heterosexual dyadic committed and exclusive relationships. In study 1 (sample A, n = 274, mean age = 32.27 years; sample B, n = 114, mean age = 30.6 years), the factorial validity of the BASEF was analyzed through an exploratory factor analysis with an initial poll of 51 items, followed by a test of its structure in a confirmatory factor analysis. In study 2 (n = 426, mean age = 31.5 years), the factorial equivalence of the BASEF was tested across sexes and its association with total scores of sexual functioning was analyzed.
OUTCOME:
The main outcome was a new instrument for measurement of beliefs about sexual functioning.
RESULTS:
In study 1, 15 items indicating 5 factors were retained. The structure was confirmed by confirmatory factor analysis, establishing its factorial validity with the five factors aggregated in a second-order latent variable. In study 2, the equivalence of the BASEF was demonstrated across sexes and its association with theoretically related measurements, the International Index of Erectile Function and the Female Sexual Function Index, was supported.
CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS:
This new measurement could be useful to evaluate clients and design interventions that take into account similarity and discrepancy in sexual beliefs in couples, such as those interventions framed in cognitive and systemic clinical models.
STRENGTHS AND LIMITATIONS:
This study presents a new measurement of beliefs about sexual functioning suited to address an equivalent set of beliefs for men and women. In future studies, the scale will be useful to compare the unique role of these same beliefs in the sexual outcomes of men and women. One major limitation is the lack of examination of the BASEF criterion validity with a clinical sample.
CONCLUSIONS:
Results are indicative of a brief, valid, and reliable sex-invariant measurement of beliefs about sexual functioning that enables testing of cognitive models of sexual functioning in men and women in clinical and research settings.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Researchers have demonstrated that several dimensions of sexual functioning (e.g., sexual desire, arousal, orgasm) are associated with the sexual satisfaction of individuals in a committed mixed-sex (male-female) relationship. We extended this research by comparing a dyadic model that included both own (i.e., actor effect) and partner (i.e., partner effect) domains of sexual functioning to an individual model that included only actor effects. Participants were 124 mixed-sex couples who completed online measures of sexual functioning and sexual satisfaction. Data analysis using the actor-partner interdependence model (APIM) and structural equation modeling (SEM) indicated that the dyadic model had a better fit than the individual model. Women's sexual desire and orgasm and men's erectile functioning were significant positive predictors of both own and partner's sexual satisfaction. These results are discussed in terms of the importance of taking a dyadic approach to research and clinical work related to sexual satisfaction.

To date the BIAL Foundation has supported 461 projects, more than 1000 researchers, with research groups in twenty-seven countries, resulting, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, out of which 172 published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Since 1996 the BIAL Foundation organizes the Symposia entitled "Behind and Beyond the Brain", a Forum that gathers well renowned neurosciences speakers and the BIAL Foundation Fellows which are spread around the world.
Classified as an institution of public utility, the BIAL Foundation includes among its patrons the Portuguese President, the Portuguese Universities Rectors' Council and the Portuguese Medical Association.

Title: BIAL Grants
Start date: 1994
History:
In 1994 the BIAL Foundation launched a programme of science research grants with the aim of encouraging the research into Man’s physical and mental processes, namely in fields still largely unexplored but which warrant further scientific analysis, as Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
Since its launch, applications to the BIAL grants have been increasing. Up to now 461 projects have been supported, involving more than 1000 researchers from 27 countries.
The approved applications have benefited from grants in amounts comprised between €5,000 and €50, 000. The amount to be granted is fixed by the Scientific board according to the needs of each project.
The supported projects have originated, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, 172 out of which were published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Among the BIAL Foundation fellows is worth highlighting the presence of scientists from prestigious universities from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Russia, Germany, Japan, France, Canada, and many others.
The BIAL grants are promoted biannually.
