Dr Rachel Katz is a digital media sociologist and research assistant at the University of Salford specialising in dating app technologies. Salford Uni in collaboration with a number of other Universities are doing a series of ‘COVID Sex Lives’ surveys. Rachel joins us to talk about the results of the first survey which focussed on men who have sex with men and how they felt about COVID restrictions easing in terms of dating and hooking up during the pandemic. The aim of the survey is to establish better methods of public health messaging as the survey found very few respondents engaged with things like in app ads and some felt there was no messaging aimed at them specifically.
