In the SLIP study we are interested in expanding the scientific data on how lubricants influence vaginal inflammation and immune responses during sexual arousal.  Vaginal inflammation leads to irritation, which in turn can interfere with healthy sexual arousal. We are aiming to study if the reduction of inflammation leads to improvements in individuals with a vagina arousal, or how healthy microbs influences arousal. This study will examine how different kinds of lubricants may change the vaginal immune response during sexual arousal, and if beneficial microbes in the vagina predicts sexual arousal and sexual wellbeing. 

We are actively recruiting for participants who have a vagina and ovaries over the age of 19 in the Lincoln, Nebraska area for this study. If you are interested in participating in this paid study please follow the link for participant eligibility - SLIP Study Screener
