UT-Austin Lesbian Students, Staff, and Faculty:

Opportunity to Participate in a Study on Women’s Sexual Health

The Sexual Psychophysiology Lab is recruiting lesbian women to participate in a study on women’s sexual health. Study participation includes coming into the lab and viewing short erotic film clips while physical and psychological arousal is measured. Lesbian women who are over the age of 18, are eligible to participate. If you are interested in the study, please contact the Sexual Psychophysiology Lab for more information at (512) 232-4805, and utsexualitylab@gmail.com. Participation takes 2 hours and participants will be compensated with $20 cash.

The goal of this study is to better understand women’s sexual arousal. The results of this project will be used to improve treatments for women with sexual problems. If interested participants can receive a summary of studying findings at the conclusion of the study. This study has been reviewed and approved by the University of Texas at Austin Office of Research Support (IRB study number 2013-01-0002).

Your participation in this study is confidential.

About me and the study: My name is Carey Pulverman and I am a graduate student in clinical psychology. I conduct sexual psychophysiology research which means that I measure people’s genital sexual arousal and self-report of psychological sexual arousal in response to erotic materials, and then look for relationships between these two types of sexual arousal.  I’m interested in different factors that influence when physiological and psychological are related versus when they are not related in women. If you’d like to know more about me or to talk about this project before you decide to participate, please contact me by email: pulverman@utexas.edu or phone: (512) 232-4805.

 

 

 

UT-Austin LGBTQ Students with Disabilities:

Opportunity to Participate in a Study on the Intersections of Disability, Gender Identity, and Sexual Orientation

I am conducting a study on the intersections of disability, gender identity, and sexual orientation among UT-Austin students (undergraduate and graduate). Participants will take part in a confidential interview lasting an hour and a half. If you self-identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer, and self-identify as a person with a disability of any kind, please contact me for more information on participating.

The goal of this study is to better understand the intersectional experiences of students with disabilities who identify as LGBTQ. My hope is that the findings of this project will help students, faculty, and staff contribute to a more inclusive campus climate. Participants will receive a summary of the study results and an opportunity to be involved in further phases of the study, if desired. This study has been reviewed and approved by the University of Texas at Austin Office of Research Support (IRB study number 2013-07-0046).

Your participation in this study is confidential.
