Thank you for helping us advance science! On this page, you receive detailed instructions for participation in our study.
The participant code
The study is anonymous. Therefore, before starting to fill out the questionnaires 📝, please prepare your anonymous study participant code as follows:
- The first two letters of your mother’s name
- The day you were born (from 01- 31)
- The first two letters of your father’s name
- The number of siblings that you have (0 if none)
EXAMPLE: Juliette’s mother’s name is Marie, she was born on the 5th of October, her father’s name is Bernard and she has 3 siblings. Juliette’s code is MA05BE3.
Please write down that code, as you will need to identify yourself before taking each questionnaire.
You will be asked questions about your overall quality of life, as well as details concerning your sexual health, your sexual functioning, existing or desired relationships, and sexual activity. The questionnaires used in this study are normalized psychometric questionnaires. Please note that the answer options in the questionnaires are only representative of the majority due to the limited normalization sample. The questions are adapted for a heterosexual, cisgender population. However, we are committed to using the data gathered in this pilot study to improve the inclusivity of future research projects within the Quality of Life lab. The questions may bring up sensitive experiences. If you choose not to answer some questions, you are free to do so at any time. At the end of each questionnaire, you are welcome to provide us with any relevant feedback you may have using the provided free text box.
