Learn about our 
International Kink Health Survey!

What is the International Kink Health Study (IKHS)?

The International Kink Health Study (IKHS) is a research project about the physical and mental health, childhood experience, sexuality and healthcare of those around the world with recurring fantasies and practices that involve kink/BDSM/leather and fetish. 


An expansion of our 2016 research survey, this study plans to invite participants to become part of a group of kink interested people from around the world. We will ask them to complete yearly surveys over a number of years. We hope that they will help us understand more about what it means to be kinky, about their health and wellbeing, their kink lives and pleasure, their relationships and roles, their injuries and their experiences of healing. 


We are researchers with deep roots in the kink community and who want to make sure that this information benefits the kink community. Won't you think about joining with us on our upcoming adventure?
