The research project, Deafness and Sexuality, which I have written about on two occassions previously, in Mephisto’s Musings: Research Project [see also Research Project Update], and has been mentioned in the AAD [now Deaf Australia] when they still had a forum, is still seeking participants.
Especially from Australian Deaf and deaf.
The survey is concerned with how our deafness impacts our ability to receive information on sex and sexuality, and the opportunities we receive to seek and express our sexuality. No other survery/ research project, to my knowledge, has been carried out into Deaf/deaf and Sexuality.
I am inviting readers of this blog to participate in this important research project. Confidentiality is guaranteed, as the survey can be done anonymously.
Just a note, I have said in the past, while Deaf and deaf Gays and Lesbians are the focus of this survey, I would like Deaf and deaf people who identify as straight [heterosexual], bisexual, or transgender to consider doing the survey. Our deafness impacts how we receive information on sex and sexuality.
This is an important survey. To my knowledge, no other survery/ research has been carried out into Deaf/deaf and Sexuality. So, I hope that you would consider doing this survey, or past it on to someone who you think will.
