COVID Elicited Responses to Sexual health (COVERS Study)

COVID-19 Research Area(s): Epidemiology & Public Health, Healthcare Delivery & Policy, Mental Health & Wellbeing, Social Impacts

The goal of this study is to understand how changes in individuals' lives related to COVID-19 impact sexual behaviour (changes in frequency and types of solitary and partnered sexual activity), relationship status and satisfaction, sexual health behaviours (birth control and condom use), sexual motivations, sexual coercion, sexual satisfaction, anxiety and depression levels. Using an online survey, we will assess these using a longitudinal design, specifically assessing variables every 4 weeks for 6 months. We will recruit a maximum of 1000 participants of all genders, who are 19 years old or older, fluent in English, and currently reside in Canada.
