We are two graduate researchers out of Arizona State University who are working on BDSM related projects and are looking for additional input from the community. The projects have multiple phases depending on respondent’s status and desire for additional involvement.

 

There is a survey for the polyamorous community looking at various subculture intersections and some basic relationship structure and behavior information. There is also an additional interview component open to polyamorous couples that have been together for more than 10 years. There is a limited amount of participants allowed for this phase and it is focused on two distinct groups; self-identified BDSM members and those that are not. We want to know what you think makes you successful!

 

More information and the survey can be found at can be found at http://polyamory.education.

 

The second project is related to the intersection of BDSM and yoga and the benefits of each. The project is looking at the perceived benefits of both yoga and BDSM; specifically, improved body image, reduced anxiety and depression, and altered states of consciousness. There is an additional interview component open to women who have been practicing yoga and/or BDSM for 2 years or more. 

The survey and contact information can be found at http://links.asu.edu/yogabodysurvey.
