Multiple Partners Survey

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 LAWolfe@aol.com.

    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.
