The Centre for Research on Occupational and Life Stress and School of Psychology at NUI Galway are currently recruiting individuals to take part in a study which aims to improve understanding of men’s sexual problems within Ireland. Men aged 18 years or over, both heterosexual and gay, are asked to participate in the study.
“Sexual function is strongly associated with overall wellbeing and therefore sexual dysfunction is an important public health concern,” said Lorraine McDonagh, a lead researcher on the study. “To our knowledge, to date, no research has examined Irish men’s understanding and experience of sexual problems. In addition, previous research in this area in other countries has mostly focused on heterosexual men. The findings of this project should help to inform the development of improved health promotion strategies for sexual problems and dysfunctions in men.”
Participants need not have personally experienced any problems (although personal experience is welcome ), but be willing to discuss this issue as part of a focus group. Those who participate will be entered into a prize draw for a One4All gift voucher worth €100.
