Sexually active individuals in heterosexual, romantic relationships are invited to participate in a couple’s study at the University of Texas at Austin.

This study examines physiological synchrony in couples. All procedures take place at home and study materials will be mailed to an address you provide. Participants will be asked to complete a set of self-report questionnaires and engage in several interpersonal tasks (e.g., gazing into each other’s eyes, holding hands) while wearing a heart rate strap to measure cardiac activity. Participants will then be asked to measure physiological responding via heart rate straps during sexual activity. The study is expected to take 3-4 hours total and participants will be compensated with $30 each, or $60 per couple.
