Consistency: Both thick and liquid Base: both water and silicone Take into account saliva, water and vaginal fluid Next Steps Finish analysis Age, gender, region, language Translation and qualitative analysis Most commonly used lubes Disseminate results Work with researchers to test lube safety and integrate findings around acceptability and preferred characteristics Using web-based surveys Reaches hidden or difficult-toreach populations Facilitates openness and disclosure on sensitive issues Low research costs BUT How representative? Limited to settings and populations that are online Deep appreciation to: UCLA for assistance with survey development and analysis IRMA members and partners

for promoting survey Translators for extending the reach of the survey All survey respondents!
