Requirements and details: Do you experience vulvar pain in response to genital touch? Contribute to research examining vulvar pain and sexuality by participating in a UBC web-based survey. The main purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between eating behaviours and sexual functioning, particularly with respect to chronic genital pain. In addition, we are examining how differences in personality and psychosocial factors are related to various measures of sexual functioning. Participation in this study involves filling out an online questionnaire, which can be completed from home and takes approximately 45 minutes to complete. The questionnaire contains questions about your sexual functioning, and your experiences with genital pain in particular. In addition, you will be asked questions pertaining to your self-esteem and body image, as well as your eating habits and attitudes towards food. There are also items that inquire about your demographics. This research will eventually be used to inform the creation of a treatment intervention for women struggling with sexual pain. Everyone who participates in this study will receive a $20 Starbucks Gift Card (CAD) as well as be entered in a draw to win a $100 Visa gift card as an honorarium for their participation.
