Online study about BDSM

Français ci-dessous
We are recruiting volunteers to fulfill a Web survey for a psychological research project with Dr. Christian C. Joyal, Ph.D., professor in the psychology department of the Université du Québec at Trois-Rivières (UQTR), as project director. We want to compare ”BDSM poeple” and ”non-BDSM poeple” to show there is no difference between both groups and challenge the pathology label around Bondage / Discipline / Domination / Submission / Sadism / Masochism (BDSM) games.
To thank you for your participation in our study we will be giving away five Amazon.ca gift cards valued at $100.00 each, offered at random among the participants in the draw. The whole process is absolutely anonymous. We don’t need your identification and you can leave at any time.
