I agree to participate in a study examining my thoughts and attitudes toward sexual behavior and identity, which is being conducted by James Griffin, a pre-doctoral student in Clinical Psychology at Fordham University. The general purpose of this study is to determine the relations between identity and behavior.


As a participant, I understand that:


1) I will be expected to provide answers to a series of online questionnaires which will take approximately 20 minutes.
2) Completion of the questionnaires is purely voluntary. I am under no obligation to complete them. I am free to stop participating at any time without penalty.
3) Some temporary stress or discomfort may be experienced as a result of providing private, personal views on potentially sensitive topics.
[We have had participants in the past answer questions similar to the ones you will be responding to without problems, but if any of the items should cause you concern or distress it is okay for you to not answer the questions or discontinue answering the question].
4) My contact information (kept separate from my survey answers) will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win either a $150 prepaid Visa giftcard. No other external incentive will be provided.
5) My consent on this page does not waive my legal rights of protection.
6) All information is guaranteed to be confidential. Only the principal investigator and his faculty advisor will have access to my responses. My data will be used only for the purpose of this study and will remain in a locked office. [Please be assured that your identity will not be identifiable from these questionnaires. All responses from all participants will be pooled for the analysis of the study and reported as group values. Therefore your responses will remain totally anonymous].
7) I agree that any survey information obtained from this research may be used for publication or education, provided that I am in no way identified.
8) If I have any questions or problems that arise in connection with my participation in this study, I should contact James Griffin, the project investigator at jgriffin21@fordham.edu, or Dr. David Marcotte (718-817-4060 or marcotte@fordham.edu).
This study has been explained to me and I understand that I am voluntarily consenting to participate.
