Couples' daily experiences across life domains

We are looking for long-term couples to participate in a month-long survey examining people’s daily experiences across life domains: work, study, relationships, sex life, and personal growth and wellbeing.

What's involved?

Participation involves an in-lab session (1.5 hours + 20 minutes online), a nightly online survey for three weeks (around 10 minutes per night), and a six-month follow-up online survey (20 minutes).

Couples will receive approximately $200 worth of vouchers for full participation.

Eligibility criteria

You are eligible for this study if:

  • You AND your partner are both working or studying.
  • You are living together.
  • You’ve been together at least six months.
  • You are sexually active (had sex in the last month).
  • You do not have children.

Participation is open to all sexual orientations.



Contacting us now does not mean that you must participate at any point.
