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: Women (cis- and trans-women) with and without sexual concerns, who are between the ages of 18-50, attracted to men, premenopausal (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 or are taking any medication that might interfere with sexual response (e.g., antidepressants) will be excluded from participation.
