The Kinsey Institute: Olfactory Study, Slide 1/4


This collaborative research project with Dr. Graham (Dept. of Psychology, IUB), investigates how fragrance may influence sexual arousal and mood in women during different stages of the menstrual cycle.

The theoretical assumption is that fragrance, while not necessarily intrinsically erotic, can modify sexual arousal induced by other types of sensory stimulation.

Investigators: Investigators: Cynthia Graham, Ph.D., Erick Janssen, Ph.D., Stephanie Sanders, Ph.D.
Research Assistant:Research Assistants: Nicky Flory, Amber Houston, Jessica Feder, Kristi Young.

The project was funded by the Olfactory Research Fund, Ltd.
