Couples Needed for a Daily Diary Sex Study

Ever wanted to participate in sex research? Here’s your chance: Our team at Indiana University is recruiting male-female couples for a sex study. There are gift card incentives involved for those who participate…. and you can learn more below.






Our research team at Indiana University is recruiting heterosexual, monogamous couples between the ages of 18 and 50 to participate in a study related to the daily sexual experiences of couples.

Most research to date has focused on sexual behaviors and perceptions from an individual perspective. However, less is known about the sexual experiences of couples. In order to better understand the sexual lives of couples, this study will ask heterosexual couples to complete a daily survey on their sexual attitudes and behaviors.

The study that we are recruiting for, the Couples and Sexual Behavior Study takes place entirely online. Couples who decide to participate in this study will be asked to complete a detailed questionnaire about themselves, their sexual attitudes and their sexual behaviors over a period of approximately fifteen (15) weeks. The daily surveys will include a brief questionnaire about your sexual activities both alone and with your partner.

Please feel free to forward this email to colleagues, friends or members of your organization who may be interested in learning more about this study. If you would like to read
