UT students: You wanna know what a Penile Plethysmograph is, right?
We don't usually take the time out of our busy day eating honeysuckle and sippin' on dew to pimp medical studies, but, um … this one caught our interest. If you're a gay (cisMale) UT student you can watch some dude-on-dude pornvids and know that you're contributing to S-C-I-E-N-C-E. Shhh.
Want the deets, or know someone who wants the deets? Read on!
Straight (cough cough) from the mouths of those conducting the study:
Thank you for your interested in our study! We would like to schedule a 2-hour block of time at your convenience.
In the session (2 hrs), male participants will complete a survey about their sexual history and related items such as personality traits and self image. Afterwards, participants will view an erotic video and answer questions about their response to the video. There is a possibility that participants may be asked to ingest an herbal supplement prior to the film viewing.
There are two pieces of equipment utilized during the video: three electrode pads and wires to record heart rate and a penile plethysmograph. For more information about the penile plethysmograph, visit www.mestonlab.com and click on "The Laboratory". Read the information under "Penile Plethysmograph" and "Safety Procedures". If you have more specific questions, please email the research staff at email@example.com.
Also: Feel free to eroticize your adventure and send to firstname.lastname@example.org. THX.
