Cultivating Sexual Desire with Dr Lori Brotto

Dr. Lori Brotto is a Professor in the UBC Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, where she holds a Canada Research Chair in Women’s Sexual Health. In this role, she is focused on developing safe, effective, and accessible treatments to address highly prevalent sexual concerns in women. She is especially interested in equity issues and as such has increasingly focused on digital health technologies to ensure that more women have access to treatments.


Dr. Brotto is also the Executive Director for the Women’s Health Research Institute—one of only three institutes in Canada devoted to advancing research in women’s health.  In this role she supports nearly 500 members across the province to collectively advance our knowledge in all domains of women’s health.


Given the known barriers that women experience in getting accurate health information, Dr. Brotto is also frequently featured in the media, radio, and features in a recent Netflix series, The Principles of Pleasure. She also has two books focused on mindfulness and sexual health (2018 & 2022).


Dr. Brotto believes in the importance of personal story and lived experience in shaping science. As such, she maintains an active practice as a Registered Psychologist where she sees a variety of individuals who want to improve their sex lives.


She is a strong advocate for empowering women to take on leadership roles, and will jump at the chance to speak with young women about pursuing a career in science, technology, engineering, and medicine.  She is active on Instagram and Twitter at @DrLoriBrotto
