UPDATE - University of the West of England study on men's experiences of their partners' sexual pain

The VPS has had reports that for some people the link to the online survey for this study was not working correctly. We're happy to say that this problem has now been resolved, but we have also included a further direct link to the study website just in case.

The study is still open to new participants, so if you were interested in taking part before but were unable to access the survey, please do try again on our Current research page.
