A mixed method research project to investigate possible underlying mechanisms of acquaintance rape
I am conducting this study as part of my Masters studies, under the supervision of Dr Peter Hills. The data collected will be used to write up my dissertation and potentially used for a publication.
This research aims to investigate modern myths about sexual aggression. In particular the research focuses on identifying and examining possible similarities, as well as differences between thought processes. It will investigate the possible underlying mechanisms of acquaintance rape and the concept of consensual sex. Further, it will investigate the level of sexual education regarding the issues of consent, alcohol and drug consumption, attire and communication.
Participants needed must be: male, heterosexual, bachelor students or bachelor graduates, British nationals and 18 years or older.
In this study, you will be asked to complete a questionnaire that comprises several aspects of modern myths about sexual aggression. The first part of this questionnaire will ask you basic details about your age, gender, and ethnic background, etc. The second part will consist of the actual ‘Modern Myths about Sexual Aggression’ questionnaire. The questions in the questionnaire will not relate to any personal experiences of the participant but generally to the topic of sexual aggression.
Please note that the questionnaires are not for diagnostic purposes.
The completion of the questionnaire should take about 30-50 minutes in total.
However, this research project will also have a second part, which will consist of a 60 minute long audio-recorded interview. The questions in the interview will not relate to any personal experiences of the participant but generally to the topic of sexual aggression. However, questions relating to personal information about the participant and his sexual education will be asked.
If you would be interested in also participating in the second part of this study please leave your email address in the designated box and the researcher will contact you to arrange an interview date and time.
