Sexting

INFORMED CONSENT

 
The Department of Psychology supports the practice of protection for human subjects participating in research. The following information is provided so that you can decide whether you wish to participate in the present study. You should be aware that even if you agree to participate you are free to withdraw at any time, without penalty.

This study is concerned with the characteristics and motivations behind sending specific types of text messages, including sexual messages commonly known as sexting. You will be asked to fill out the following questions about yourself, relationship satisfaction, and texting behavior. The questions about texting behavior will ask about how often you text, delete information, sext, types of sext messages you send, and your feelings about sending/receiving sext messages. The survey at no point will ask exact information sent or received, only to classify or summarize the type of information sent/received. This information will not be linked in any way to identifying information about whom you are. If you are taking this survey for credit in an introductory psychology course, after you complete the survey a link will appear that will route you to a different survey to enter in your name and your instructor’s name. This information will not be linked in anyway to your responses in this survey.

Your participation is solicited, but strictly voluntary. Do not hesitate to ask any questions about the study. Be assured that your name will not be associated in any way with the research findings. We appreciate your cooperation very much.

Sincerely,
