Authors Sun Tae Ahn, Jong Wook Kim, Hong Seok Park, Hyun Jung Kim, Heung Jae Park, Hyeong Sik Ahn, Sung Won Lee and Du Geon Moon. “Totally, 2,500 participants (1,273 men and 1,227 women) completed the survey.”

“This study was performed as a part of the Korean National Survey on Sexual Consciousness, from May 1, 2014 to March 1, 2015. A stratified probability sample from the South Korean population was used, adapting a multi-stage stratification sampling method. The inclusion criterion was age between 18 and 69 years…. After stratifying samples by gender, region, and age, we recruited participants randomly from a population of 300,000, using structured research panels from Neo Research & Solution (internet research company based in Seoul). The research panel was structured with the general population who agreed to participate in internet surveys. We randomly extracted 25,000 samples (10 times the designed sample) from this panel, as per the stratification design planned, and sent e-mails between November and December 2014, requesting them to visit the web portal. In the website, they were asked to participate in the survey and answer the study questionnaire. All participants who answered the questionnaires were paid 1,000 Korean Won as compensation.”
