This current study has searched for evidences of validity based on the internal structure and the relations to other variables for the translated and adapted Brazilian version of the Sexual Self-Efficacy Scale - Erectile Function (SSES-E), which contributes to the development of instruments for the evaluation of sexual dysfunctions. This study is also related to the retrospective study of permanent files of medical reports about application on men complaining of erectile dysfunction and rapid ejaculation with ages between 18 and 62. The results have indicated the possibility of two dimensions, designated as achieving and maintaining erection. Not only the instruments but also the dimensions were able to discriminate important characteristics of the samples about the primary and secondary complaints, types of erectile difficulties and satisfaction with the sexual relationship. These results are qualified as evidences of validity on SSES-E, also important as being a useful instrument when evaluating specific questions about sexuality, like sexual functioning.
