An Informative App and Sharing Platform for Young People about Sexuality, Love and Physical Development
Teenagers spend a lot of time on their smartphones? That’s right.
Luckily we, the designers of smartphone applications, have a certain amount of control on what information is available to young users and how it is communicated. Sexual education is an important component in the education of young adolescents and lays the foundation for a responsible and conscious sexuality. But when it comes to address the topic concretely, many are confronted with uncertainty and feelings of shame. Moreover, in the age of the Internet the impression can arise that young people educate themselves independently and already know everything. There is a potential risk that incorrect information or unrealistic body images will be considered as the norm.
With my app, I would like to offer young people a platform where they can both exchange experiences and get answers to their questions in a playful and truthful way. The app operates as a virtual guide that both strengthens communication among young people and navigates through the individual emotional chaos.
