First lab for co-sex research at UM

‘Sex sells!’ This may apply to many contexts; unfortunately, that is not really the case in the scientific research domain. Sexologist Marieke Dewitte has many questions she would like to research in her unique sex lab at Maastricht University, but finding research funding is no easy task. Nevertheless, the first study of sexual arousal in couples is now underway. “We know that most sexual problems do not play out at the individual level, but in a partner relationship. Nevertheless, research into that interaction is rarely done.”
