Hello,

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 who use vibrators.

Most research to date has focused on sexual behaviors and perceptions on rates of vibrator use within the US. However, less is known about people’s perceptions about various vibrators and the ways in which people integrate vibrator use into their sexual lives. In order to better understand these questions, this study will investigate the use of vibrator use by couples.

The study that we are recruiting for, the Couples, Vibrators 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. During that time the couples will be sent four (4) vibrators for use during various weeks. The daily surveys will include a brief questionnaire about your sexual activities both alone and with your partner and your perceptions of the various vibrators.

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 additional information about the study and decide whether you would like to participate, you can go to this web site: https://www.indiana.edu/~whs/QSE-study

If you have additional questions about the study, please feel free to send us an email at cshp@indiana.edu or call 812.855.0364.

Thank you for your time.
