A ‘juicy’ bridging platform to familiarise kids with more serious sex-education sites, Sapp’g! functions as an online ‘sex’ collector for kids with their first phone, with a refreshing collection from all the good sex sites, ranging from funny peer platforms to serious sex education sites.
With this constantly updated, easy-to-share collection of all the new juicy stuff about sexy topics, from the juicy funny sides towards the sticky serious sides of sex, kids can ‘teach’ each other about the diversity of sex on an equal footing.
What was it like to participate in No Minor Thing?
‘It was exciting and new for us to openly share our concept development with other design studios. The effect of the relaxed mutual dialogues and information exchange was that new insights emerged and we sharpened each other’s concepts.’
‘ The design study helps determine the ‘question underlying the question’ when it comes to social issues. In addition, the solution-oriented tendency of designers leads the way toward innovative solutions.’
While working on this project, what has caught you by surprise the most?
‘We were surprised to see how rigid and politicised the viewpoints about this complex topic are and that the classic power game about sexual education and standards is perhaps a problem where children are victimised even more in an accelerating world.
What role do you attribute to design when it comes to this type of social issue?
‘Firstly, the design study helps determine the ‘question underlying the question’ when it comes to social issues. In addition, the solution-oriented tendency of designers leads the way toward innovative solutions. Finally, various assumptions and possibilities can be tested in a new context by deploying and testing prototypes in the real world. The “license to operate” from OM and WDCD provides the space necessary to actually go ahead and try groundbreaking things.’
