This survey is part of a study being conducted on the effects of MDMA [Ecstasy] on sexual behavior. The study is being conducted by Mr. Hector Garcia of the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology at Rutgers University. Your participation is this survey is completely VOLUNTARY. YOU MAY DECIDE NOT TO PARTICIPATE AT ANY TIME DURING THE SURVEY.
In order to participate in this study you must be at least 18 years of age, and you must have used MDMA [ECSTASY] at least once in the past month. We will NOT ask for your name, or any information, which would positively identify you such as your social security number, and we will NOT attempt to identify you. Internet Protocol (IP) addresses will automatically be collected with each submission. IP addresses are strings of digits that can be used to identify the computer from which the submission originated, but not the individual who made the submission. IP addresses will be recorded merely to ensure that there is only one response from each address, but they will be purged at the end of the study. Every effort will be made to insure the confidentiality of your responses. However, confidentiality cannot be guaranteed under all foreseeable circumstances, and it is conceivable that confidentiality could be lost. No one will contact you further regarding the study unless you provide contact information along with a written request for contact to the researcher. The results of this study will only be reported collectively, rather than on an individual basis.
The questions of this survey are of a sexual nature and ask about MDMA [Ecstasy] use. It is possible that some of these questions may be upsetting to you. If that occurs the researchers will not provide counseling, but participants will be referred to the primary investigator's advisor, Dr. James Langenbucher [(732) 445-0908], a licensed psychologist, who will make every reasonable effort to encourage that individual to seek appropriate care. You may choose not to answer any questions that disturb you. If you have any questions about your participation in the study please contact Mr. Garcia at (732) 445-6111 x.906
If you have any questions about your rights as a research subject you many contact Brenda Rutolo, the Sponsored Programs Administrator at Rutgers University at: 732-932-0150, x.2104.
Did you take ecstasy/MDMA on a regular basis in the past, but have not for 2 years (for any reason)? Do you live in the UK? Researchers at the University of Cambridge would be extremely grateful if you would be prepared to be in a study in Cambridge, England. Time and travel expenses will be refunded. We hope to add to the current literature on the long-term effects of MDMA. The procedure takes only 2 hours, and the study design addresses many of the problems frequently encountered in MDMA research. If you have taken ecstasy/MDMA on at least 30 separate occasions, the last time being at least 2 years ago, please contact Jon Roiser (email@example.com) in complete confidence.
You do not need to use your real name, and if you wish you may email anonymously from firstname.lastname@example.org (password: cambridge) to Jon Roiser, putting an identifier in the Subject heading. If you use this method, an email will be sent back to the cambridgestudy address within 2 days. An information sheet about the study will be sent to anyone who is interested. Your details will not be kept in electronic or written form following the test without your express permission, and all email contact will be deleted. Please contact Jon Roiser with any more questions about the study or to receive an information sheet. This study is being carried out with approval from the Cambridge Local Research Ethics Committee.
