Welcome to the SageLab

Who are we?

The SageLab is a research laboratory in the Psychology Department at Queen’s University.  We are a group of psychological scientists interested in understanding the intersection between gender and sexuality as it pertains to sexual attractions, sexual desire and arousal, and sexual functioning.

What do we do?

We conduct basic research, such as examining sexual responses in the laboratory, and clinical research, such as understanding factors that contribute to healthy sexual functioning.  Although some of our studies may focus on a particular gender or sexual orientation, the SageLab is an environment that supports people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions. We also work to challenge the invisibility and silencing faced by Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transsexual, Transgender, Two-Spirit, Intersex, Queer, Questioning, and Asexual people, as well as inform the discourse around sexual responses for all people.
