If you’re anything like me, you probably think there’s nothing more fun or interesting than learning about the latest sex research. But have you ever wanted to go beyond just reading about it and actually contribute to sexual science by participating in a sex study or two (or three or four)? If so, today is your lucky day. Below are links to a series of sexuality studies that are either run by me or some of my esteemed research collaborators. Each study addresses a distinct aspect of sex and you are eligible to participate in as many or as few of the studies as you would like, depending upon whether you meet the selection criteria (please note that you must be age 18+ to participate in any of these studies). Any help you can provide by participating or spreading the word is greatly appreciated and will help to advance our understanding of human sexuality.
- Sexual Attitudes and Behaviors - This survey is open to anyone, regardless of gender or sexual identity. You will be asked questions about your sexual history, attitudes, and functioning.
- Survey of Men Who Have Sex With Men – This survey is open to men who have sex with other men, regardless of their sexual identity and relationship status. You will be asked questions about your sexual history and current sexual practices.
- Consensual Nonmonogamy – This study is open to persons involved in any type of consensual, nonexclusive intimate relationship(s). You will be asked questions about your relationship beliefs, practices, and desires.
Links for additional research opportunities can be found on the Sex Studies page, which is updated regularly with new studies being conducted by sex scientists across the globe!
If you aren’t eligible to participate in any of these studies, don’t despair—more links will be posted soon. In the meantime, feel free to participate in The Psychology of Human Sexuality’s Reader Survey.
