Hi all!

I'm a queer woman and a graduate student. I'm trying to collect data for my dissertation, which is an online study looking at different types of attractions that women and men of various sexual orientations experience. I'm collecting data from lesbian women, straight women, gay men, and straight men (sorry about the categories!). I would like to make sure that I get enough lesbian women and gay men to participate so that we are equally represented. If you have 20 mins to spare, please participate! It is completely confidential and anonymous. As an incentive, I offer feedback (based on the participant's responses) on self-esteem, personality traits, and romantic relationships (feedback is optional).

The study's webpage is:

Thank you in advance for your help!!!!

Hi, Not in this survey


Not in this survey unfortunately. But I do have another one I'm working on that includes individuals who identify as bisexual. Same age requirement though. Thanks for checking it out:)

did it

Survey needs to be more clear on some of the questions asked. Response is unspecific too many times, or does not apply to people. Took it, and enjoyed it for the most part.

Genius is not a sign of intelligence, but rather
that of common sense. Humor is the best pain pill.

Thank you for your feedback and participation. I really appreciate it! I'll definitely look into revising questions based on everyone's feedback. Thanks again!

It seemed fine to me. By which I mean it largely resembled a lot of the questionnaires I had to fill out for the various experiments I participated in for my intro to psych class.
