How this app works
It is designed to allow the user to ask themselves some questions before they get involved in any sexual activity.
The app is about teaching them to learn about keeping safe.
We ask them to stop and think about what they are about to do and teach them what could happen to them if they take risks.
The app then shows them options on how to reduce or stop the harm associated with those risks.
There is a picture dictionary explaining the words used in the app and it has optional text reading capabilities to enhance accessibility
Why this app is needed?
We believe that healthy sexual development, information and support is essential for all people, of every age, sexuality or disability. We want to do all we can to help young people feel good about their sexual selves, whoever they are, and to create sexual lives that are as happy, healthy and beneficial as possible.
