My thesis is done. I spent two years designing, conducting and analyzing my research project before writing about 10 drafts.
It will be another month until my thesis is in the library and ready for the public. Unless you read my blog. I’m posting my final thesis here for enjoyment, discussion and critique.
I Say, They Say, We Say: Sexual Lexicon Commonalities and Dissimilarities
My program was not easy. Even with the tight admissions (15%) acceptance rate, 3 people dropped the program in the first year. But I stuck to my guns and pushed my way to the finish line.
For comparison’s sake, here is a paper I wrote as a first year on female sexual identity development.
Dangerous Desires and Safe Spaces
Enjoy! I’m taking a little break from writing for a couple of weeks but The Sexademic will be up and running again in June. See you then!
ETA: A couple of people pointed out the ugly PDF watermarks so I put up some watermark-free versions instead. I kicked a little at first but these are easier to read.

I’ve read the thesis and I liked it very much. Congratulations!
Missing your blogging,
It is an interesting project, but I have to say I’m a bit troubled by the conclusions you formulate from your data. When I did the study I was shown the normative male clip, so I am most qualified to discuss that, and it was by no means a straightforward consensual orgy scene. There were a variety of social undertones and meaning communications that left viewers with a particular impression that is well-demonstrated in their response to the video, but not in the study’s description of it.
The non-normative male clip from the sound of things was even more problematic. There is no way within the social norms environment I am familiar with that the correct answer to “You’re so sensitive” is “yeah”. That’s a bit of a jerk answer, and it likely set off strongly negative judging reactions in viewers, as it apparently did.
In any event, congratulations on finishing your project!
