Factors Influencing Sexual Desire Among Women With and Without Sexual Difficulties (JUNIPER study)
Juniper: We are examining the relationship between sexual arousal and desire in women with and without sexual difficulties. More specifically, the purpose of this study is to understand the early neurocognitive correlates of sexual arousal and desire, including attention to sexual cues, and physiological and subjective sexual responses.
Eligibility: This is an in-person study, with assessments taking place at Vancouver General Hospital and the University of British Columbia’s campus, so participants must be able to attend these sessions. Women (cis- and trans-women) with sexual concerns, who are between the ages of 18-50, attracted to men, have not yet gone through menopause (still having regular menstrual periods), and in a sexual relationship. This study will not be suitable for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Women who are affected by a major mental disorder will be excluded from participation.
