Description :

The Sexual Health Laboratory (Université de Montréal) and the Couples & Sexual Health Laboratory (Dalhousie University) are currently recruiting couples where one partner has difficulties with low sexual desire to participate in a new online research study.

In compensation, participants can receive up to $346/couple (Canadian Dollars) in gift cards for completing all surveys in the study.
