Welcome to the UBC Sexual Health Laboratory
Dr. Lori Brotto and the UBC Sexual Health Lab featured on the Discovery Channel documentary, The Science of Lust.
Women assessed with sexual interest/desire and/or arousal difficulties take part in eight 2-hour weekly group sessions focused on Mindfulness-based therapy.
The UBC Sexual Health Lab focuses on clinical and behavioural research in women's sexual health, issues in sexuality, and psychosocial oncology issues.
Our many research studies focus on diverse topics such as low sexual desire, the relationship between hormones and female sexual arousal, the experience of fear as a cancer patient, treatments for female sexual dysfunction, asexuality, as well as many other areas under the umbrella of human sexuality.
