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. JUNIPER is limited to self-identified women who have a vagina with sexual concerns, who are between the ages of 18-50, who are attracted to men, and are in a sexual relationship. This study will not be suitable for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

The JUNIPER study is now closed for recruitment.
