Body Talk


It’s been a while!

It has been quite a while since my last blog post, and I hope that I will be able to add to this a lot more frequently over the next few months. However, today I am very excited to share with you, a new study as part of my PhD research.

Having had difficulty previously with recruiting participants to take part in my research, I decided that I needed to reflect upon why I might be having problems in getting young men to engage with the topics of body image and appearance.

The result……

A new study, for which I began data collection yesterday.

So for those of you who don’t know me – Hello, my name is Candice and I am a PhD student at Leeds Beckett University, researching male body image and appearance – thanks for dropping by.

I am currently looking for males aged between 16-39 years, to take part in an anonymous online survey.
If you decide to take part, you will be asked some background questions, such as your age and sexual orientation, followed by 8 questions surrounding male appearance.

For more information, or to take part in the survey, please click the link below:…/SV_86t3cmbnXQV…

Please feel free to share, and thank you for considering taking part in this study.


What’s next?

Well, I am also hoping to conduct some individual interviews over the next few months, either face-to-face, by telephone, or via Skype. So if you fit the same criteria as above and think that you might be interested in participating in one of these interviews, it would be great to hear from you. You can contact me on here, or by email:

Keep well, and I look forward to keeping you updated with how the research is going.
