Hello! We are conducting research into the political attitudes,
identities, and political behaviors of sexual minority groups in the
United States. If you identify as a member of any (or all) of the BDSM,
Leather, or Puppy Play communities, please take a moment to take our
surveys. The links to all surveys are below. Simply type each link into a
web browser (on your computer, tablet, or smartphone) to begin! Each
group has two surveys – one is multiple choice and one has open ended
questions where you can express yourself. You may take the surveys for
any group that you think you belong to. If you identify with more than
one group, take the surveys for each one!

Your answers are completely anonymous. We have no way of connecting you to
your answers. Our IRB approval number at UC Irvine is 2014-1273. Feel free
to pass these links along to any other members of these groups you think
might be interested or to post these links on any group Facebook pages
that would allow it.

About the study: We are exploring the political attitudes and political
behavior of several sexual minority groups in the United States. In
addition to the BDSM, Leather, and Puppy Play communities, we also
include the polyamory community, Furries, and nudists/naturism in our
research. We are writing a book about these currently overlooked
communities.

About us: Tony Smith (casmith@uci.edu) is an associate professor of
political science at the University of California – Irvine and Shawn
Schulenberg (schulenberg@marshall.edu) is an associate professor of
political science at Marshall University.
