Academic interests

  • Sexual behaviour and sexual health

  • Sexology

  • Health behaviour


Although sexual health issues have been increasingly gaining legitimacy and importance, our knowledge regarding sexuality in older age is lacking. The aim of my PhD-project is to investigate the relationships between biopsychosocial processes and sexual well-being, sexual function and help-seeking behavior in older European adults.

Titel of the project is "Healthy sexual aging: A mixed-method study of sexual function and sexual well-being in older European adults".
