New Study: Vulva and Vagina Perceptions

Our research team is working on a new study. Please see below to learn more or to take it. Thanks!


Our research team at The Center for Sexual Health Promotion is conducting a study on men’s and women’s behaviors, thoughts, feelings, and beliefs about vulvas and vaginas. Although a great deal of research has been conducted on vulvovaginal health, less remains known about people’s perceptions about their own and others’ vulvas and vaginas.

Women and men who are at least 18 years of age are invited to participate in a study about their thoughts, feelings, beliefs and behaviors related to their own and/or other’s vulvas and vaginas.
