Project information and FAQs
I am inviting you to fill in a survey to tell me about your relationship with sex. There will be questions about your background, knowledge and feelings. You will also be asked if you think a theatre play could benefit women’s relationships with sex.
What do we mean by 'sex'?
In this survey, 'sex' refers to any sexual experience that you have had with yourself, a partner, or multiple partners. This means that you don't have to talk about penetration, orgasm or even being with another person if you don't want to - these thing may or may not seem necessary to you for an experience to be 'sex'. It is up to you what you share.
Q1. Please confirm that you have read or watched the project information and want to participate in this survey. Please answer as either Yes or No.
Q2. Do you have lived experience as a woman and currently live in the UK or Ireland? Please answer as either Yes or No.
Q3. Do you consider yourself to have a disability or condition? You can answer in as much detail as you like.
Q4. If yes, how do you think that your disability or condition influences your relationship with sex? You can answer in as much detail as you like.
Q5. Is there anything about sex that you wish you had a better knowledge of?
Q6. What emotions do you normally feel after having sex with yourself, a partner, or partners?
Q7. Would you like to be able to talk more openly about sex? You can answer in as much detail as you like.
Q8. Do you have any suggestions for how a theatre play, discussion group or workshop could benefit how you think, feel, or can talk about sex?
Q9. Are there any topics relating to women and sex that you would like to see represented in a theatre play, discussion group or workshop?
This survey is not intended to be triggering but it might be for some people. If you do not feel comfortable to answer a question, or to complete this questionnaire at all, that is OK. Please only answer the questions that you want to answer and you only need to give as much detail as you are comfortable with. If you would like any guidance or further reading around any of the subjects that come up in this survey, or if you would like to talk to someone, you can find resources and organisations who can offer you support via the buttons below.
Thank you for taking the time to tell us about you and your relationship with sex, we really appreciate your help!
