Sexual health while traveling - What would you like to know?


For our study, we are looking for people to share their experiences, perspectives, questions and needs about sexual health while traveling in an interview. The goal of the study is to develop an individual counseling concept for travelers around the topic of sexual health and sexually transmitted infections. Important for the concept development is also the aspect of diversity. All persons, regardless of their sexual orientation, are very welcome to participate.


Requirements for participation are:


  1. that you have traveled at least once in the last 5 years while not in a monogamous relationship.
  2. that you have had a travel consultation or have booked an appointment for one.
  3. that you can hold a conversation in German, English or French.


We would appreciate your help in developing a practical counseling concept on the topic of sexual health while traveling.
