The aim of the study was to investigate gender differences in the perception of love and sex among Polish young adults. The Perception of Love and Sex Scale was administered to the sample 494 young adults (327 females and 167 males) aged 20–28 years, with the average age of participants being 21.3 (SD = 1.93). The results indicated that women were less convinced that love is the primary entity (i.e., Love is Most Important), that sex is an important element of a romantic relationship, but in some ways subsumed by love (i.e., Sex Demonstrates Love), and that love comes first (i.e., Love Comes Before Sex).
