Study: consent in gay BDSM relationships

Alphatribe was contacted by a student at the University of Leuven in Belgium about his master’s thesis in the context of his sexology course. Dries is looking for gay men into bdsm above the age of 18 who want to help advance the science of sexuality and bdsm.

His research focuses on consent in DBSM relationships. He is looking for respondents who would like to take the time to complete a questionnaire completely anonymously. The questionnaire wil take approximately 35 minutes of your time. Afterwards you can indicate whether you would like to go deeper into the theme with me in a short interview. Do you recognize yourself (or a friend / acquaintance / …) in this message and do you (or that friend / acquaintance / …) want to advance not only me, but also the science around BDSM? 

Then you can find the questionnaire via this link: https://kuleuven.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5j2Gdk0V1FxiS45 

The study is currently available in Dutch but talks with a US university are in progress to enrol the study in English as wel. Alphatribe will keep you updated.

This study was approved by EC Research UZ / KU Leuven (MP 015343)
