Center For Sexual Health Promotion Seeks Lesbian and Bisexual Women To Participate In Study

09/05/10-by Bridgette P. LaVictoire
Dr. Vanessa R. Schick is a Post Doctoral fellow with the Center for Sexual Health Promotion at Indiana University. Dr. Schick is looking for women who engage in sexual relations with other women, i.e. lesbians and bisexual women it would seem, to participate in a research study into the sexual behaviors of this portion of the population of the United States. Those who participate in the study will be thanked for their time with a coupon towards a purchase made at a website catering to women.

LGR is not affiliated with this study, and not affiliated with Indiana University. As such, we cannot guarantee any participant’s privacy if they so choose to participate in or interact with this study. LGR is simply passing along the word in hopes that this will help advance understanding about lesbianism in the US.

This is the message from Drs. Schick and Debby Herbenick:

The Center for Sexual Health Promotion at Indiana University is conducting the Global Women’s Sex Study to learn more about the sexual lives, pleasures and experiences of women who have sex with other women.

The data will be used to help us understand the sex lives of women in the bedroom (and beyond) in order to promote better and safer sex between women. Current knowledge of sexual pleasure and risk between women is largely based on either heterosexual models of sex or relatively small groups of women which may not represent the thoughts/feelings/behaviors of you or your community.

The information learned in this study will be used by sexual educators who want to promote pleasure and medical professionals who can help women identify ways to protect themselves from any risks— hopefully leading to safer and happier sex.

Thank you for your time.
