"Sex - clear! Simple. Right? Or maybe not...
Surrounding this topic, there are many possible questions and often only a few places to go to find answers.
Virtual S*Exploration provides a safe and engaging platform for individuals aged 14 and up to explore impulses and perspectives on sexuality and identity. The project, The project, which was guided in its creation by a sex educator, offers knowledge on practice, but also insights on topics like shame, shyness, societal norms, consensus, and self-awareness.
Utilizing technologies like virtual reality glasses, AI engines like Dall-E and ChatGPT, as well as mp3 players and pen/paper, participants embark on a journey through three distinct stations. They have the freedom to choose which topics they wish to explore. Through self-reflection, participants create a personal letter to their body and craft a unique meme to take with them."
