PROCEDURES:

Your task is to answer the following multiple choice questions honestly and to the best of your ability.

 

RISKS/DISCOMFORTS:

There is minimal risk due to the personal and sensitive nature of questions related to unwanted sex. We will protect your confidentiality by not collecting any personally identifiable information and not storing your Prolific ID in the same database as your responses. You may also exit the survey at any time without penalty if you feel uncomfortable.

 

BENEFITS:

Although it will not directly benefit you, this study may benefit society by improving how sexual assault prevention interventions are designed.

CIRCUMSTANCES THAT COULD LEAD US TO END YOUR PARTICIPATION:

CONFIDENTIALITY:

The only identifying information kept based on your participation in this study will be your Prolific Academic ID. This information is only necessary in order to compensate you and will be removed from your responses in the database.
