Dr. Shanna Kattari at the University of Michigan is conducting research on the ways in which the recent COVID pandemic has impacted people in polyamorous and other consensually nonmonogamous relationships. See below for more information.


Are you a person who identifies as engaging in non-monogamous and/or
polyamorous relationship styles? Were you navigating these relationships
during the COVID-19 Pandemic?

If you answered “yes” to both questions, we’d like to invite you to take
COVID and Non-Monogamy Survey. This survey, designed by a coalition of
researchers (many of whom are non-monogamous themselves) and conducted at
the University of Michigan, is designed to explore the impact of COVID-19
on people in non-monogamous relationships, their experiences and
conversations. Questions cover topics such as conversations about risk,
impact on time spent with partners, care-taking, navigating COVID diagnosis
or illness, and impact on sense of self and body experience, among others.

The survey should take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete, and those
individuals who finish the survey are eligible to be entered in a raffle to
receive one of five $50 gift-cards. This survey has been found exempt by
the University of Michigan IRB, HUM00207091.
