Research interests

Joseph Josy Lévy is interested in examining the cultural dimensions associated with STD/AIDS prevention. His research focuses on sexual, contraceptive and preventive scripts among youth; the impact of new therapies on the sociosexual conduct of homosexuals and bisexuals; as well as prevention among men and women. He has also conducted studies on bisexuality, the development of bisexuals’ identity, as well as their sociopsychological issues and prevention strategies. His more recent research involves the implementation of a program focusing on the sociosexual use of the Internet among homosexuals and bisexuals in Montreal and Quebec City.
