Title: Self-regulation of approach motivation states
Purpose of Study: This study is designed to examine who and why some people are better able to change their sexual responses than others. Asexuals are of special interest because it is thought that they do not experience sexual arousal as easily or, in some cases, at all, as compared to non-asexuals.
Protocol Summary: This study consists of one visit lasting about 2 hours to the Mind Research Network in Albuquerque, NM. (Travel cannot be reimbursed, but we can help plan to meet with you if you will be in the area.) You will answer a series of questions about your sexual feelings and history on a computer. Next, you will receive instructions for a task that involves viewing a series of sexual and non-sexual films. Then, we will ask you to change into a gown and enter an MRI. During this MRI, we will record responses from your genitals as well using a small device that should cause no discomfort. Afterwards (or if you choose to withdraw before) you will be paid $40. Participation is confidential.
Basic Eligibility Criteria: You must be over age 18 and able to enter an MRI safely.
