Subject: An Internet Survey on the Impact of Vulvodynia in Lesbian, Bisexual and other Sexual-Minority Women
Contact: Heather Andruff, BA, PhD Candidate, (613-562-5800 ext. 4449, firstname.lastname@example.org) and Elke Reissing, PhD (613-562-5800 ext. 4944, email@example.com). Human Sexuality Laboratory, Department of Psychology, Faculty of Social Sciences, The University of Ottawa.
The University of Ottawa is seeking lesbian, bisexual and other sexual minority women (e.g. queer, unlabeled, nonheterosexual, etc.) who are currently experiencing vulvo-vaginal pain, genital pain, and/or pain during vaginal penetration (with fingers, sex toys, penis, tampons, etc.) to participate in an online research study. In order to participate, women need to be 18 years of age or older.
Eligible participants will complete an anonymous and confidential online survey that includes questions on the current experience of vulvo-vaginal pain, gynecological history including a consultation history, sexual functioning, relationship satisfaction and demographic information. This survey should take approximately 30 minutes to complete.
Women who are interested in participating are asked to visit the University of Ottawa’s Human Sexuality Website for more information and to complete the survey (www.sciencessociales.uottawa.ca/hslab-labosh/eng ).
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Heather Andruff, BA, PhD Candidate, (firstname.lastname@example.org, 613-562-5800 ext. 4449) or Elke Reissing, PhD (email@example.com, 613-562-5800 ext. 4944).
Hello Queers on Campus!
Just a quick reminder that our winter mixer is tomorrow, Friday January 30
from 4 - 8 PM in the MacEwan Conference Centre, Ariel Room. We're serving
subs and soda, and we might just do some kareoke to liven things up. As
well, our fancy new stickers campaigning for a safer and more inclusive
university will be available at the event. Admission is free with a QC
membership, available for purchase at the door for $5.
If you can't make it to the mixer, upcoming events include same-sex speed
dating, a sex toy party, and our annual gender bender.
We hope to see you tomorrow!
