10 week project
Designed by Emma Boyle
wanting to explore sexuality and sexual education of young adults, there was an immediate appearance of the lack of communication and knowledge when it comes to intimacy.
I want to learn more about my own sexuality, but there is stigma in our society that makes the subject taboo.
what did people already know?
Of people did not feel prepared for sexual
activity after their sex ed
Of people did not feel comfortable or
knowledgeable about their bodies after their sex. ed
Of people wish they had learned more...
based off these statistics there was a surprising a disconnect
based off the voices of these young women... it became imperative to create a product based on their needs.
“ I want to be able to explore, make
mistakes, have a relationship with my body without judgment.”
“Most women feel unprepared when it comes to knowing their own needs before
participating in intercourse”
“Communication is key in healthy
relationship but when it comes to sex even
long term couples struggle”
wanting to get advice I reached out to some professionals...

FINDING THE GAP
THIS TOLD US THAT THERE IS A NEED FOR CREATING A YOUTH FOCUSED PRODUCT THAT ADDRESSES THE CONCERNS OF OUR CUSTOMERS
“When teaching our pre-middle school players the fundamentals of football, throwing the ball correctly and catching the ball are our biggest challenges
Kids learn better visually, so to be able to point to an area of the ball and have them understand the technique so much faster
In every offensive system, the QB is the focus. The sooner you can have a kid to learn to throw the better
