Hello. Yesterday I got a message from a researcher from the department of Psychology at Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia. She is conducting a study investigating how sexual object fetishes are experienced and asked out collaboration. Here is the message I received:
Dear Jay. I am a PhD candidate from the department of Psychology at Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia. I have been conducting research investigating how sexual object fetishes are experienced. I am currently seeking participants with sexual clothing fetishes (e.g. boots, stockings, panties) and other object fetishes (e.g. balloons), who are 18 years of age or over, with English proficiency, to participate in an anonymous, online research survey. Because this is a follow-up study to research previously conducted it should only take participants 4-6 minutes to complete.
This research will increase understanding of sexual fetishism, as well as debunk any misconceptions that exist.
We’re more than happy to support this initiative. If you fit in the target, you’re invited to participate in the survey. When available, the results of the study will be published in the blog.
