n+1 Research: Call for Participants

The n+1 Research Collective is conducting a study on pornography, for which we’re seeking (completely anonymous) interview subjects. It’s equally helpful to us to speak with people who use porn, avoid it, or have never encountered it in their lives—so if you’re interested, we hope you’ll consider talking to us, or spreading the word to people who you think may want to participate.

We’re exploring what it means—if anything—that people now encounter sex on the internet at early ages. We’d like to hear from you about the change from a world where sexually explicit depictions were less accessible to one in which they are instantly available.

As a participant in the study, your name will always be kept confidential, seen only by a project administrator who does not see the interview transcripts and never attached to any data or responses you provide. We are currently seeking participants who live in the New York Metro area (or have lived there recently) and are 35 or older.

Interested? We hope so. Email nplusoneresearch@gmail.com if you can participate, and our administrator will arrange an anonymous online Gchat interview with one of our interviewers. We will provide you an anonymous Gmail account to write from. The interviews take approximately two to three hours. Most people really enjoy them.

(P.S. Know a friend who might be interested? Please spread the word. We hope eventually to publish a book based on our findings, including your (anonymous) thoughts and stories.)

Gratefully, n+1 Research Team
