Participate in Sexuality Research
The Sexuality and Gender Laboratory is recruiting participants for a number of in-lab studies. Below are brief descriptions of our current studies:
Current in-lab studies:
TARRAGON_C: We are looking for healthy, premenopausal, heterosexual, cisgender women, ages 18-50, who are in a sexual relationship, not currently depressed, and not using hormonal contraceptives to participate in a study of physical and mental responses to sexually explicit videos. Participation involves completing lab sessions and online questionnaires over three consecutive months.
TARRAGON_S: We are recruiting women with sexual arousal and/or desire difficulties (e.g., difficulty getting “turned on”, low sexual desire, etc.) for a study of physical and mental responses to sexually explicit videos. Participation involves completing lab sessions and online questionnaires over three consecutive months. We are looking for women who are: 18-50 years old, healthy and pre-menopausal, predominantly or exclusively sexually attracted to men, in a sexual relationship, not currently depressed, and not using hormonal contraceptives for the study.
GINKGO: We are looking for predominantly or exclusively same-sex attracted cis- or transgender women (e.g., lesbian), ages 18+, to participate in a study measuring visual attention to different types of sexual stimuli. Compensation offered.
GINSENG A: Recruiting healthy, opposite-gender attracted women WITHOUT sexual difficulties, ages 18+, to participate in a sexual arousal and attention study. Study procedures involve a single lab session recording your physiological responses and eye movements and completing computer tasks and questionnaires.
GINSENG B: We are looking for women WITH sexual difficulties (e.g., absent/low desire, difficulty becoming aroused), age 18+, who are predominantly or exclusively attracted to men (i.e., heterosexual/straight) to participate in a study assessing sexual arousal and attention. Study procedures involve a single lab session recording your physiological responses and eye movements and completing computer tasks and questionnaires.
SAFFRON: We are looking for men and women ages 18+ to participate in a study examining attention to sexual stimuli. The study procedure involves looking at and responding to sexual and nonsexual images and words, and completing a questionnaire about your sexuality. If you are interested, please sign up for the study using the PSYC 100 subject pool online system.
