A sexual fantasy questionnaire (SFQ) measuring paraphilic and nonparaphilic fantasies was developed. Aspects of reliability were assessed in a sample of convicted male child molesters (27 inmates and 15 outpatients) and a convenience comparison group of 87 male undergraduates. Results indicated adequate test-retest reliability (mean r=.84), acceptable percentage agreement on repeated items (90%), and adequate internal consistency (mean Cronbach alpha=.82). The convergent validity of the SFQ was supported by the finding that child molesters reported significantly more deviant fantasies involving children than comparison subjects. Consistent with previous research, child molesters reported a similar number of normal sexual fantasies.
