Lets Talk About Sex…On Our iPhones.

New sex ed app is available to do the deed of teaching all about STDs and more.

The dreaded birds and the bees talk just got an upgrade. Parents, educators, and pre-teens rejoice, Brianna Radar has cancelled all sex education weirdness with Juiceebox, the first and only mobile app resource for sex ed.

Radar realized an apparent need, and open window of opportunity, to create the first mobile resource talking STDs, pregnancy, condoms and more upon realizing the lack of comprehensive and health conversations majority of the United States creates around sex and sexual relationships.

Only 24 states in the US mandate sex education, and only 13 states require that sex ed instruction be medically accurate. According to a press release:

“It’s illegal to teach comprehensive sex education [in Tennessee]. They only teach abstinence education in the public schools. I stayed there to attend the University of Tennessee for college, and I realized that all of my peers had had the same education that I did.

When you combine that type of education with many of the elements of college — namely alcohol and the freedom of being away from home — it’s a disaster. You have problems like STDs and sexual assault. Even worse, the university didn’t provide any type of outreach program.”

Juicebox functions as an anonymous app, freeing up that awkward air and allowing the user to feel welcomed into a safe space confined to their mobile device. Radar’s goal was to create a “comfortable, silly and casual forum” to allow the most honest of questions to be answered.

Users can either “Snoop” or “Spill;” snoop allows users to anonymously ask professional sexual health educators their questions, and browse through already asked and answered questions. Spill adds to the layer of silliness and comfortability as it allows the user to recount and share their funny sex-related stories. For the really good stories, users can upvote and watch as the condom expands with each click, or deflates with each downvote.

 

 

So to never lose any valuable information, users can also “stash” their questions and answers to revisit for later. Head over to your app store and check out Juicebox, it’s never to late to ask those between the thighs questions.
