Post Study for consensual non-monogamists: Participants wanted!

Hi folks,

My name is Tyler Burleigh.

Iím a PhD student doing some research on how consensually non-monogamous individuals evaluate relationships using partial information. Iím looking for consensually non-monogamous individuals (e.g., swingers, people in open relationships, polyamorists) to participate in a brief (10 min.) online study.

If you participate, you will be asked to read statements describing relationships involving two or more individuals, and then asked to answer questions about each relationship using your own best judgment. You will also be asked some personal questions, such as your age, sex, relationship status, and relationship orientation.

In return for your participation, you will have the option of entering into a draw for a $50 cash prize (odds of winning, 1:100).

Thank you for your time! Below you will find a link to the study, and a copy of the certificate of approval from my Research Ethics Board.

Sorry, I tried your survey.

I exited after about a dozen questions.
The responses required that I make judgments based on knowledge not available from the turned over card/cards.

Perhaps the responses you are looking for are not what I would be prepared to give based on the available information.

Looks like you just need to click on the link to the survey that was provided, in order to take part.

I agree!

Very different from the usual surveys we see here.

Please come back and let us know what the study showed.
Me: poly bi female, in an "open-but-not-looking" Vee-plus with -
MrS: hetero polyflexible male, live-in husband (23+ yrs)
Dude: hetero poly male, live-in boyfriend (4+ yrs) and MrS's best friend
Lotus: poly bi married (to TT) female, "it's complicated" relationships with Dude/JaneQ/MrS (1+ years)
+ "others" = FBs, FWBs, lover-friends, platonic G/BFs, boytoys, etc.
