Multiple Partners Survey

Posted by Cyn | Posted in Relationships | Posted on 19-03-2008


Would any of you who are involved with multiple partners, or who have been so involved, whether or not you identify as polyamorous, be willing to take a research survey? You don't have to give any individual identifying information at all, if you don't want to.
Multiple Partners Survey
From the site:

Thank you for your interest in participating in this multiple partners survey. For this project we're exploring the differences in attitudes, beliefs and practices between people who openly call themselves polyamorous and those who engage multiple sexual partners in a more independent, self-styled way. We want to explore whether the "culture of polyamory" (e.g. attitudes, beliefs and practices) has positively impacted the experience of consensual multiple partner relationships. To participate in this study you must be (or have recently been) in multiple (simultaneous) relationships wherein your other partners knew you were (or could have been) involved with someone other than them. You may also participate in this survey if you are (or were) involved with someone who is/was openly involved with others in addition to yourself. If you openly practice polyamory your participation is certainly welcome as well. Do note that the information you share here will remain completely anonymous; your personal answers will be disclosed to no one. Please try to answer every question as best as you can. If a word or phrase could have more than one meaning, please interpret it according to your own usage. Preliminary results will be shared at the Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality Meeting in San Diego on April 11, 2008. The principle investigator for this project is Anthropologist/Sexologist Dr. Leanna Wolfe who is based at Los Angeles Valley College. She may be contacted at

Thanks — that was a good survey.

Thanks — do pass it on, please!

The sur­vey was a bit awk­ward for me — it seems to be aimed at folks cur­rent­ly in a rela­tion­ship of some sort. I post­ed it up at my LiveJournal 🙂

I’m hap­py to lend poly legit­i­ma­cy 🙂 This sur­vey came the clos­est of any I’ve seen to cap­tur­ing the many vari­eties of poly that I’ve come across.
