Event Title

Addressing research gaps: Exploring how sexual thoughts are experienced in young-adult LGBTQ populations.

Faculty Sponsor(s)

Scott Edwards, Ph.D.

Project Type

Research Proposal

Primary Department

Marriage and Family Therapy

Description

This study aims to expand the existing research into frequency, type, and perception of sexual cognitions in heterosexual individuals to LGBTQ populations. A slight modification of the Sexual Cognitions Checklist, consistent with previous research protocol, will be used. To limit variables, this quantitative study will survey undergraduate students presently involved in committed relationships, aged 18-24, from three public universities in Oregon and Washington. It is hypothesized that LGBTQ participants have higher frequencies of negative sexual cognitions (NSC) - clinically relevant information with important therapeutic and research implications, as these have been associated with sexual shame.
