Dear Participants,

My name is Reyn Boyer and I am currently an undergraduate student at Towson University. As part of my Psychology Undergraduate Thesis I am conducting this study to explore factors related to attitudes toward sexual experiences. If you choose to participate, you will first be asked to read a short description of a person and answer questions about that individual. You will then be asked a series of questions about your attitudes toward their experiences and then about your general attitudes toward sexuality. It is anticipated that participation in this study will take approximately 10-15 minutes.

Your participation is entirely voluntary. You do not have to participate in this study. If you choose to participate, you may discontinue your participation at any time.

There are no negative consequences for choosing to participate or not to participate in this research study. There are minimal personal risks associated with participation, as you will be asked to reflect on your opinions regarding sexual experiences. Participants can be assured that the information supplied will be completely anonymous, that is, no one will be able to identify you by your responses. Completion of this survey signifies your voluntary consent to participate in this research and that you are at least 18 years of age. You can discontinue your participation in this study at any time simply by clicking "Exit Survey" in the upper right hand corner.

The Towson University Institutional Review Board has approved this study. While there are no direct benefits to you, we hope that the results of this study will reveal something about the way human beings function in everyday situations. Please direct any questions you may have to the principal investigator, C. Reyn Boyer, at cboyer1@students.towson.edu, or by phone at (443) 632-4036. You may also contact my faculty advisor, Dr. M. Paz Galupo, at (410) 704-2421, or Dr. Debi Gartland, Chairperson of the Institutional Review Board for the Protection of Human Participants at (410) 704-2236.

Thank you for your time.
Sincerely,

C. Reyn Boyer
Undergraduate Student, Towson University
