Hey Ladies, Got Genital Piercings? Have Some Money!


A couple months ago, we posted this offer from Indiana University for gentlemen to discuss their genital piercings in exchange for cold hard cash, but there was some concern that this study was maybe racist towards the women. Well, it’s your turn now, ladies!

NOTE: No more applicants are being accepted. Thanks for your input!

The Department of Applied Health Science at Indiana University is conducting a research study designed to collect information on women’s sexual health and genital piercings. We are looking for women who have had their genitals pierced to participate in a phone interview that will be audio-recorded. The time commitment will be approximately 45 minutes and you will receive a $25 VISA gift card for completing the interview. In order to receive the gift card a name and mailing address is required.

To be eligible for this study, you must be at least 18 years of age, speak and understand English, currently reside in the U.S. and have had your genitals pierced.

If you are interested in participating please e-mail us with the following information at xxxxxxxx:

- Your first name, or name you prefer.
- A phone number where you can be reached.
- Several times when you are available to talk on the phone privately.

A member of the research team will call you to discuss the study. We are looking for 20 women and will call people in the order in which the e-mails were received.

For questions please contact Dayna Fischtein, Department of Applied Science, xxxxxxxxxxx

  1. awesome! im really glad studies like this exsist.

    i guess i missed out on the potential racism thing, is there a link somewhere?
    btw, how can someone be a racist toward women?

    males of all kinds admitted, but only white women?
    heheh

  2. Am I the only one curious as to who those beautiful women are in that picture??

  3. …I cannot believe I’m the only one who got that “racist towards the women” was a joke. *facepalm*

  4. Indiana represent! wish i knew of the male study, whenever that was. i live very close to IU :(

  5. Stop being racist towards people who make jokes you need a sense of irony to understand.

  6. I was totally about to write this email…..but the first 20 people…….they have probably had over 2, 000 by now.

  7. Modblog, I would love it if you could possibly keep track of the study. I would be really interested in reading the final article, from both genders point of view.

    Cheers!

  8. We are really happy to have the the study progress to include women. There is a process when it comes to research and we have to narrow down one category at a time… There is only a handful of us conducting this research.
    Drobot: Since you are in the area, you can come our first presentation on this study at IU. I really hate public speaking but it’s for a good cause :)

  9. I get the whole joke and that is cool…. but I do agree that sexism is a big problem, esp in this industry. For example, the photo chosen to represent this study…

  10. Yay, I participated today! I saw this article last week and emailed the university my info and they called me today. I think they called a few days ago too, but I was asleep or something. Can’t wait to see the overall outcome/results.
