address the study aim. First, we developed a new composite index to assess the whole range of CSBD symptoms. This index relied on three previously validated scales for the assessment of CSBD: the Hypersexual Behavior Inventory (HBI, Reid, Garos

.001). Because Cronbach's α has been criticized for its biased estimation for reliability ( Green & Yang, 2008 ; Sijtsma, 2008 ; Zimmerman, Zumbo, & Lalonde, 1993 ), researchers proposed the composite reliability as a more robust way to estimate the reliability

, 2002 ). Cronbach's alpha (≥. 70 acceptable) and composite reliability (CR; >.60 acceptable) were calculated to assess the reliability of the CSBD-19. To examine the criterion and convergent validity of the CSBD-19, we assessed associations with

each state during the pre-film and film periods, using a 7-point Likert scale from ‘ not at all ’ to ‘ very intense ’. As described by Schaefer et al., we computed positive (DES+) and negative (DES-) composite scores ( Schaefer et al., 2010 ). Moreover
