Doctoral candidate Lelia Samson has won the 2012 award from the International Academy for Sex Research for her paper, written with Kinsey Senior Research Scientist Erick Janssen. Lelia is in the Department of Telecommunications at Indiana University, with a minor in Human Sexuality.

The paper is entitled:
Sexual and affective responses to same- and opposite-sex stimuli in heterosexual and homosexual men: The impact of visual attention.

Ms. Samson received a Kinsey Institute Student Research Grant for this research in 2010.

IASR judges noted the creative and innovative methodology, the rigor of the research, and the clarity of the presentation.

The award comes with an invitation to the IASR annual meeting in Portugal in July, where Lelia will have an opportunity to accept the award.
