Want to Keep a Seven-Day Sex Diary for a New Unique Study?
Posted Sep 10 2010 12:39pm
Forget the glossy happy endings of big screen romances and the histrionics in our soaps – what’s really going on in our love lives? How do we really feel about sex, relationships and intimacy? How often are we having sex? How does our current romantic status make us feel?
Welcome to The Sex Diaries Project, a unique collection of anonymous seven-day diaries kept by real British men of every age, background and situation, all writing openly and honestly about their lives behind closed doors - and between the sheets.
Through the experiences of everyday UK citizens, the book — which is published by Random House next year — aims to capture a snapshot of the nation’s sex and love lives. Whether it is the teenager in the throes of first love, the twenty something newlywed, the ex-pat in an open marriage or the retired consultant with a younger girlfriend, the book tells our stories, not an airbrushed Hollywood version.
Now The Sex Diaries Project wants you! If you’re a man over 40, this is a chance to share your point of view about relationships, in your own words and with utter anonymity.
All diarists have to do is write multiple short entries a day about anything involving sex, relationships, love or romance including thoughts, conversations, text/email exchanges and events.
The team behind the book assures potential diarists that no-one is too boring/busy/celibate/anything to take part in this project. The whole process is totally confidential. Check out www.thediaryproject.net to learn more.
If you’d like to get involved, or you know any other men who might benefit from the experience, get in touch with the editor firstname.lastname@example.org .
