Discovering the Similarities between SM Communities and Other Organizations
MetadataShow full item record
The current research study is comparing and contrasting the demographic diversity of Sadomasochist (SM) organizations and other community organizations by surveying an SM organization and a non-SM organization. A confidential online survey was used to collect data. Fourteen general questions were asked: age, gender, sexual orientation, relationship status, number of children, ethnicity, highest level of education completed, employment, hours worked, income, religious affiliation, personality, infidelity and self esteem. Data was analyzed using Levene's test and t-tests. Relationship status and religion were two differences between the SM group and the non SM group. The author discusses limitations and future directions of this study.
