The Sexperience 1000

A social website wants to end the taboo on talking about sex, using video messages, discussion forums and infographics.

Great Britain has the highest rate of teen pregnancy in Europe. In the past decade, sexually transmitted diseases doubled among people over 45 years old, but talking about sex is still a taboo. With the television programs The Sex Education Show and Joy of Teen Sex, Channel 4 launched a national campaign to help us talk more openly and honestly about our sex lives. The conversation is continued on the social website Sexperience, where professionals answer questions and sexually active users exchange experiences, on discussion forums and through video messages.

The website’s motto is “Sex is not simple. There aren’t always easy answers.” But there are complex questions, it seems. For instance:

what exactly is the right time for your first time? How important is the orgasm for a woman? How do you tell your boyfriend he should invest more energy in foreplay?

Those who are looking for concrete statistics find them in the Sexperience 1000: attractively designed infographics about the sexual experiences and preferences of the British populace. The differences between men and women are especially noticeable: he prefers her to be on top, while she prefers missionary. He masturbates more often. But they cheat just about as frequently as one another.
