Abstract

The lack of negotiation power is a key factor in unsafe sexual behaviors in couples. Pulerwitz, Gortmaker, and De Jong (2000) developed the Sexual Relationship Power Scale (SRPS) in English and Spanish to measure this important concept. The purpose of this integrative review is to examine the reliability and validity of the scale across published studies as well as to integrate the results and suggest implications for future research and clinical practice with a focus on improving the health of women and couples. Web of Science, PubMed, CINAHL, and PsycINFO were systematically searched using the authors' names and keywords; 13 studies met inclusion criteria. Critical analysis of study results suggests that the scale is valid and reliable and useful in examining gender power within relationships.
