The Sexuality and Well-being lab (SWell Lab) uses various psychophysiological methodologies to examine processes involved in sexual arousal (e.g., attention, genital blood flow), in order to identify mechanisms contributing to sexual dysfunction. We also employ more ecologically-valid daily experience and longitudinal methods to examine how factors involved in arousal and desire unfold in the context of people’s daily lives and over time.

The SWell Lab is an environment that strives to be inclusive of people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, gender expressions, and relationship constellations. We prioritize patient and participant engagement in all of our research and involve patients and participants in the research design, advertising, and knowledge translation.
