Sex Now Ottawa-Gatineau

“One prick can change the ban!”

SexNow Outreach and Recruitment Schedule

SexNow is the largest survey for guys into guys in Canada. The anonymous information collected helps better understand the health & wellness of guys into guys in our various communities.

Who can participate in the Sex Now Survey?

The study is open to any self-identified guy into guy. Participants aged 15+ can take part in the written survey. Folks aged 18+ can participate in both parts.

The face to face survey this year is two parts: A questionnaire that takes 10-20 minutes and a tiny finger prick to collect a few drops of blood. This data will then be passed on to the Canadian Blood Services with the hopeful goal of changing the present blood ban for guys into guys.

Participants who complete both parts will receive $10!
