The Research Group in Human Sexuality conducts research in the area of sexuality with a special focus on themes associated with sexual dysfunctions, sexual risk behaviors, compulsivity, and sexual assault, as well as the dimensions associated with the determination of sexual response, sexual satisfaction, and well-being. The studies conducted by the group usually have implications at the level of understanding, prevention, and treatment of sexual problems but also at the level of promotion of sexual health in general. With this aim, the main objective of the Group is to conduct research of cross-sectional, longitudinal, and experimental nature in different aspects of human sexuality.

The group has established a research laboratory in human sexuality (SexLab) that is unique in Portugal allowing conducting experimental and psychophysiological investigation on different aspects of human sexuality. The lab is part of the international network "SEXLAB", coordinated by Erick Janssen from the Kinsey Institute (USA) composed of 11 laboratories that work in this area around the world
