The Sexual Compulsivity Scale (SCS) is a psychometric measure of a high libido, hypersexuality and sexual addiction. It was developed by Seth Kalichman.[1] It consists of statements that must be rated on how much the taker agrees with them.

Scores on the SCS have been found to predict a range of health outcomes.[2]
