My name is Paulina Ha, and I am a doctoral student in clinical psychology at John F. Kennedy University in Pleasant Hill,CA. I am conducting a study Asian American’s experience of the BDSM community.   If you are over 18, Asian American, and identify as part of the BDSM community, I would like to invite you to participate in my research.  Participation involves a 1 hour audio-recorded interview by telephone about your experience of how your cultural identity intersects with your BDSM identity.  Your participation will be kept confidential.  Participation is purely voluntary, and if you change your mind about participating, you may withdraw at any time.  If you are interested in participating, or would like to know more about my study, please contact me at: (657) 215-7024.  If you have concerns about this study you may contact the NU/JFKU IRB at: (858) 642-8384 or
