Welcome!

Hello and welcome to my survey. The following ten questions are aimed at people who more or less frequently visit various kink meme communities and participate in them in some ways. This survey studies the way fans participate in kink meme communities, how they feel about the sexually explicit prompts or stories, and what they think about kink meme communities' role in the larger context of pornography. The survey closes at 30:th of November 2015. After the closing time, the answers will be collected, analyzed and coded and parts of the answers will be used in writing an article studying the role of kink meme communities in the larger context of pornography and porn studies. This study is a part of my Doctoral thesis studying the role of slash fiction in the development of the fans' sexual identity. 

Please study the questions below and answer them in your own words as best you can. You may use as many or as few words as you need. Please keep in mind that you may answer anonymously. Your answers will be analyzed and studied by one person only and every effort is made to ensure that no specific person can be recognized in the writing of the article. 

Question Title

* 1. Please state your gender and sexual orientation in your own words.

Question Title

* 4. What kink meme communities are you mostly active in? Please provide the official name of the fandom (e.g Supernatural) as well as an abbreviations of your favourite pairings, if any. (e.g. Supernatural, Wincest or Sam/Dean, or X-men Cherik or Charles/Erik) Please list only those fandoms whose kink meme communities you most often frequent.

Question Title

* 5. How active are you? What is your role in the kink meme communities you frequent: reader/writer/both/prompter/lurker etc? Please provide your "activity level" with the fandom it applies to. (E.g. Supernatural: reader, sometime prompter. X-men: active writer and prompter. etc.)

Question Title

* 6. What, in your opinion, is the most important role of kink meme communities? Does the role change from fandom to fandom? Please answer with your most favourite fandom in mind.

Question Title

* 9. Please answer only if you sometimes prompt and/or read the explicitly erotic stories. Please describe your motivations for prompting and/or reading said stories.

Question Title

* 10. Some of the kinks prompted and filled are quite taboo in nature. (e.g. kinks featuring underaged characters, bestiality, rape/non-con etc.) What do you think of the "taboo" kinks? Where is the line, what is and is not ok to prompt/write? Is there need for censorship in kink meme communities?
