Rachael Purtell is a Ph.D. student at West Virginia University who is interested in conducting interpersonal communication research with consensually non-monogamous (CNM) populations. See below for more information on the study.
We are working on a research project that examines communication with a committed partner about extradyadic sexual encounters (i.e., sex with someone other than a primary partner, life partner, nesting partner, boyfriend, girlfriend, etc.). If you are 1) 18 years or older and 2) currently in a self-defined committed consensually non-monogamous relationship with at least one partner (e.g., primary partner, nesting partner, life partner) and 3) have disclosed information about an extradyadic sexual encounter in the past six months you are eligible to voluntarily participate. As incentive for your participation in this study, you may choose to be entered in a raffle to win one of two $50 Amazon gift cards. Please note that the co-investigator is a member of the polyam community.
This anonymous online survey will take approximately 15-30 minutes to complete and is conducted by co-investigator R. E. Purtell and principal investigator Dr. Megan R. Dillow from WVU’s Department of Communication Studies in 113 Armstrong Hall, P.O. Box 6293, Morgantown, WV, 26505.
If you wish to participate in this voluntary research study, you can follow the link below to learn details of the study and complete the survey. This survey will in no way identify you to your survey responses.
