Thank you for your interest in participating in our research! We are currently recruiting participants for one online study, but more should be available soon! 

STUDIES FOR EVERYONE:
  • (Posted: April 2018) The purpose of this study is to examine the dimensions of different vanilla sexual, non-sexual BDSM, and sexual BDSM activities and how they relate to partner types (romantic partners and play partners). This study will also examine factors that individuals might consider when engaging in these activities. Individuals will be asked questions regarding their current or most recent romantic and play relationships, and a variety of different demographic questions. Participation is completely anonymous. If you would like to participate, please click here. This study takes about 20 minutes to complete.
