MAPs wanted for study on online social support forums

B4U-ACT is collaborating with researchers investigating social support in online forums for minor-attracted people. If you are a MAP who meets the study requirements, please consider participating.
Here is additional information from the research team:


We are a team of researchers looking for Minor Attracted Persons (MAPs) with a sexual attraction to pre-pubescent and/or pubescent children to take part in a study on the use of online forums and online social support.

As a participant, you would be asked to complete an anonymous online survey (hosted by soscisurvey.de) that asks about your use of online forums specific to those with sexual attraction to children, and the impact of these forums on your wellbeing.

You will NOT be asked about past or present sexual behaviour. 

You are eligible to participate if you are 18 years or older and if you identify as an MAP who is sexually attracted to pre-pubescent and/or pubescent children.

Participation is voluntary and would take approximately 30 minutes to complete.
