What’s Your Fantasy? Participate In The World’s Largest Scientific Survey Of Sexual Fantasies

June 19, 2015 by Justin Lehmiller


Sexual fantasy is one of the most, well, “fascinating” topics in human sexuality, which is why I am currently running an online survey of sexual fantasies that is designed to be the largest and most comprehensive investigation in this area to date. This study will help us to better understand what it is that people are fantasizing about, how sexual fantasies vary across different segments of the population, as well as what our fantasies mean and where they come from.

This survey is open to all adults age 18 or older and it takes about 30 minutes to complete on average (some people take longer, depending upon how detailed they are in describing their fantasies). You will be asked questions about your own fantasies, as well as your personality and sexual history. To ensure your privacy, the data are being collected anonymously. Participants who complete the survey will have the option of entering a raffle to win one of several gift cards and to request notification when survey results are published.


Since the survey was launched, more than 8,000 people have started it! Thanks for this wonderful response! If you would like to participate or learn more about this survey, click here. If you know anyone else who might be interested in participating, please feel free to pass along the link. And if you have already participated, you have my sincere thanks. If you are interested in participating in other sex studies, you can find more opportunities here.

The results of this survey will greatly enhance our understanding of this important aspect of human sexuality. Thank you for your contributions to the science of sex!
