Smartphones and apps are changing the way we live. Ordering food, getting a lift home, tracking exercise and doing our banking couldn’t be easier and those are really just the basics. You can also learn a new language (or three), get sports updates and meditate all with a simple app. Now, women can also keep track of their sexual health, learn about their bodies and get relationship and dating advice. Here, four sex apps you should download ASAP!
Meet Happy, your friendly neighbourhood vulva – that’s how HappyPlayTime introduces its super-cute dancing mascot. While not strictly an app just yet, this website, in simple terms, teaches you how to masturbate. But it’s so much more than that. It teaches you to love yourself and that loving and understanding your own body is a prerequisite to being able to receive pleasure from others and give pleasure to others.
According to the website, “Unfortunately for many women, there has been a cultural stigma that blocks access to self-stimulation. HappyPlayTime is here to eliminate this barrier as much as possible. By talking openly and lightheartedly about female masturbation, we are taking the first step to becoming truly sexually liberated.” It’s time to get in touch with yourself.
A comprehensive source of information, this app lets you explore the world of sexual health. Positive sexual health, contraception, info on STIs, myths about sex, sexual orientation and current news are just some of the topics covered by the app and it gives advice on how to have safer sex and how to keep the passion alive in your relationships. It also has videos covering issues like contraception and STIs etc. There’s not much it doesn’t cover, so give it a try if you need to brush up on your sexual health knowledge.
Say farewell to getting a nasty surprise when your period arrives out of the blue (or what appears to be out of the blue anyway). Pink Pad is a free menstrual and fertility tracker and social health network for women that lets you keep track and chart your menstrual cycle and health symptoms. It also helps you monitor your fertility symptoms, plan for pregnancy, find out if what you’re feeling is normal and share health advice with women like you.
This app is your new one-stop shop for all your sexual health, dating and sex questions – it has tons of information on sex and sexuality (over 600 entries divided into 20 categories) and covers topics that range from flirting and dating to STIs and unplanned pregnancies.
It’s super-easy to use with intuitive navigation, doesn’t need an internet connection and lets you browse and explore in total privacy (it lets you set up a pin code to prevent unauthorised access to the app). Special features include a sex dictionary with more than 500 terms and a list of 100 Things You Must Know.
