Work-Family conflict (WFC) has been a frequently investigated construct within the organizational psychology field. Because the majority of research involving WFC centers around the workplace and job related criteria, we wanted to investigate its relationship with an at-home or family based variable that had not yet been investigated. Specifically, we chose to investigate the relationship WFC may have with the sexual variables of: sexual frequency, sexual satisfaction, and levels of sexual daydreaming. We hypothesized that WFC would be positively related with daydreaming levels and negatively related with sexual satisfaction and frequency. We compiled a survey using a standardized measure for WFC that consists of 18 statements using a rating scale from 1-6 to measure level their level of agreeableness with the statement. We then included scales for sexual frequency, sexual satisfaction, and level of sexual daydreaming. The sexual frequency section simply consisted of three multiple choice questions while the sexual satisfaction scale consisted of 25 statements using a 1 e 7 scale for agreeableness and the sexual daydreaming scale consisted of 12 statements using a 1-5 scale for agreeableness. We selected participants through a randomized list of UNI employees, omitting faculty, and through personally approaching convenient UNI employees.
