• Sex and Relationships Researcher

Featured Research

In my work as the Director of the Sexual Health Promotion Lab at University of Kentucky, I maintain an active research agenda. Some of the projects currently in progress include research on women’s sexual health, sexual and relationship satisfaction, responsive sexual desire, desire discrepancy, maintaining satisfying sex in long-term relationships, and the effectiveness of integrating sexual pleasure into comprehensive sex education, among others. Featured research projects will be posted here and regularly updated, particularly for studies seeking participants.
