Participants Needed For Sex Studies!

August 28, 2019 by Justin Lehmiller

If you’re reading this, odds are that you love learning about the latest sex research. But have you ever wanted to go beyond just reading about it and perhaps take part in an actual sex study? If so, check out my Sex Studies page, which is updated regularly with calls for participation from sex scientists across the globe. Nine studies have already been added since the beginning of this year, with new opportunities coming in each month!

Feel free to participate in as many studies as you would like. However, please be sure to review the eligibility criteria first to ensure that you’re a good fit for a given study before signing up. Current participation opportunities cover a diverse set of topics from understanding the link between kink and relationship satisfaction to exploring modern safer-sexual practices to studying the impact of abstinence-based sex education.

Any help you can provide by taking part in one or more of these studies and/or by spreading the word about these research opportunities (such as by sharing the Sex Studies page on Facebook or tweeting a link to it) would be greatly appreciated and will help to advance our understanding of human sexuality.

Thank you for your contributions to the science of sex!

Note for sex researchers: If you’d like to have your study listed on this website, please follow the submission instructions listed on the Sex Studies page.
