Supportive, stable romantic relationships can help buffer some of the negative effects of chronic pain (depression, financial stress). In our research, however, we've noticed that physical intimacy can be a challenging area to navigate for persons with chronic pain. Kendra Wasson and Laurel Kasper, two of our lab's fantastic undergraduate student researchers, and Lyndsay (doctoral student) are hoping to present their research at this year's Canadian Sex Research Forum in Quebec City! This is a great way to stimulate discussion about this important part of many relationships that often get dismissed for persons with pain! Fingers crossed!
Sex is an important part of many relationships- including those affected by chronic pain!
