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:

Note: The criteria for the TARRAGON studies have changed recently. Women using hormonal contraceptives may now be eligible to participate.

TARRAGON_C: We are looking for healthy, premenopausal, heterosexual, self-identified women WITHOUT sexual difficulties, ages 18-50, who are in a sexual relationship, using hormonal medications (e.g., contraceptives), and not currently depressed 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 self-identified 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. 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, and not currently depressed. Participation involves completing lab sessions and online questionnaires over three consecutive months

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.

If you are interested in participating in one of these in-lab studies and think you might be eligible, please contact the Sexuality and Gender Laboratory by email (sagelab@queensu.ca ) for more information. Please include the name of the study of interest in the subject line of your e-mail. All queries are strictly confidential.
