Sexuality & Relationships Lab

Welcome to the Sexuality and Relationships Lab at Xavier University. Our research is aimed at understanding people's behaviors, thoughts, and emotions in the context of intimate relationships. We study how and why these relationships impact overall quality of life, and test treatments meant to help with difficulties in these areas. We would like to hear from individuals interested in participating in our studies, students interested in volunteering as research assistants, and professionals interested in collaboration. Please explore the site and feel free to contact us with questions.
