Gearing Up for Dating Confidential Push!

By Katherine Dodds On November 17, 2011 | 1 Comments

Calling on Sexual Health Promoters to support Important Survey! Help us get our quota by December 15! is a website with a survey that could provide very interesting information on how to reach women over 25 with sexual health information. A project of Univerity of British Columbia PhD candidate Cindy Masaro, Hello Cool World is helping to promote the survey.

Women over 25 are a population that is under-surveyed, and since many women who have been previously relatively monogamous, are finding themselves entering a dating world that is different than what they were used to the first time around. Particularly with online dating sites, and all the electronic communication modes that are part of everyone's life these days, there are new factors that are driving new narratives about sex, romance, and all the lovely logistics of 'hooking up." 

Does this new world mean women will be more at risk for STIs? This is question Cindy is exploring, and as she points out, much of the existing research is on gay men, younger people in general, or those pervieved as the traditionally more at-risk communities. But are the newly divorced the new "at risk" group? It's a question worth asking.

And Cindy, as a 11-year veteran nurse at the BC Centre For Disease Control's STI clinic, knows first hand all kinds of people are having all kinds of unprotected sex, and many do not have an accurate idea of what constitutes risk in this day and age.

If you can help us promote this survey please Join us and we'll be in touch!

We have also created two e-flyers that can be forwarded as emails, or linked to as webpages -- one to encourage health promotors to help us promote the survey, and one that can be used BY health care promoters for general sharing and  to send to their networks.  Check them out!

Putting Sex in Advertising Where It Belongs!



This website & blog is a space to showcase our Sex Ed clients and reflect on our work and philosophy around sexual health and advertising. It's a portal to campaigns, but it's also an exploration of our process, as well as our beliefs around what works to promote safer sex, healthy relationships & sexual rights, and why we think the key to being effective is to address "the pleasure deficit" in sexual health education.
