This SSSS BDSM/Kink Research Data Standards panel discussion will coordinate BDSM/Kink measures to avoid multiple researchers ‘doubling-up’ or concurrently constructing similar measures that cannot be correlated. Multi-institutional collaboration could additionally assist any limitations in funding for individual research teams by sharing the work globally through phases. Once preliminary research data is initiated; the measures, procedures, and preliminary data can help additional research teams seek funding, negotiate Internal Review Board (IRB) approvals, and to corroborate / refute the preliminary data findings. The focus of the Panel Discussion shall be upon Quantitative measures, while recognizing that Qualitative and Phenomenological data are interwoven with the spectrum of BDSM / Kink lived experiences. The panel’s direction will be followed-up with a SSSS BDSM/Kink SIG working group to compile and hone the quantitative measures for potential future phased collaborative research projects around the globe.
