What's involved?

Interviewer visit

One of our interviewers will visit in the next week or so. So that you know who they are, all of our interviewers carry photo ID with our logo on it. We understand that you may be busy, so we’ll organise the interview at a time that suits you.

The interview

Taking part involves an interviewer asking the selected participant some questions about their health and relationships. An interviewer will conduct the study either face-to-face or remotely (by a phone or video call), depending on government guidelines and your preference.

The interviewer will ask you to complete the more personal questions by yourself, by handing over the laptop to you (if you are interviewed face-to-face) or by directing you to the questions online (if you are interviewed remotely).

We will ask you about a range of topics including relationships, experiences and attitudes towards topics relating to sex. And don’t worry – you don’t have to answer any questions you don’t want to, we can just skip on to the next one.

No need to prepare

There’s no need to prepare for the interview. You don’t need any special knowledge, we just want to hear about your daily life and what you think. Most people agree to be interviewed and enjoy taking part.
