Where are your erogenous zones? A survey mapping bodily pleasure

Researchers: 
Lara Maister & Manos Tsakiris, Royal Holloway University of London

Brief description: 
This may seem strange but despite hundreds of years of psychological study, we still know relatively little about human sexuality. This anonymous questionnaire investigate the parts of the body which give sexual pleasure. We aim to investigate which areas of the body are able to arouse sexual feelings, when they are touched or looked at. We also want to find out which areas of a partner’s body you find arousing when you look at them or touch them. The questionnaire is completely anonymous, and should take about 10-15 minutes. You can be entered into a prize draw to win an iPad mini upon completion. Please note that participants must be 18 years old or older.
