Surveys for FTM Population & Their Partners

Jamison Green the former President of FTMInternational is interested in the sexual health and satisfaction of all transmen, whether or not they have had hormones or surgery, and in the experiences of their partners. He will use the data as raw material for a book, tentatively entitled "The FTM Guide to SEX," plus academic presentations and journal articles to educate medical and therapeutic service providers about trans lives.

The surveys are designed for FTM or trans men and their partners. Partners do not have to be in a current relationship, and if a FTM person or trans man has been partnered to another FTM person or trans man they may of course take both surveys. In order to take the surveys you must be 18 or older. For these surveys the proctors are using the following definition for FTM or trans man: “a person who was born with a female body--and assigned female or intersex at birth--and who plans to initiate, has initiated, or has completed medical treatment to masculinize his body”, some examples of identities may include FTM, trans man, genderqueer, or intersex man.

Here is the survey for partners of FTM folks and trans men. It takes between 20-40 minutes based upon your life experience. Partners

And here is the survey for FTM folks and trans men. Again, takes between 20-40 minutes based upon your own life experiences: FTM folks

This is kinda crappy that the FTM partner has to be intending on masculinizing their body. Apparently Jamison, as head of FTM International, never came across FTM/genderqueer individuals who were identifying as male who were no-ho/no-op...or if he did they apparently aren't male enough for his survey. Once again, my partner's experiences and identity are ignored & discounted. Yay.

Agreed, anonymous. I took this survey, but even though my partner is intersex and genderqueer and should have been included in the survey, almost none of the questions were applicable.

Agreed about the medical transition- I know a good number of transmen who do not plan on medically transitioning but still have relevant concerns and knowledge about trans/ftm/genderqueer sex.

I hope you follow through with the book. Follow your passions.
