That's 9.8 million new cases each year! Yet only 19 out of 50 States in the U.S. require schools to teach sex ed that is medically, factually and technically correct. As a result, many teens aren't getting the information they need to make safe and informed choices when it comes to sex.
And no joke about the fun part. Tap That was designed by a self-described non-gamer who just doesn't like playing games unless they're fun, even if they're educational. Oh, and they also have to have nice visuals. Duh.
Because sex ed in class is awkward. And talking to your parents about sex? Em-ba-ra-ssing! That's why Tap That is constantly being tested by people your age to make sure the game is so fun to play, it'll make you forget you're learning about icky sex ed. Because, really, life is too short to be bored.
Because let's face it. Even if you tell your kids don't-have-sex-or-else, teens are just going to have sex if they want to have sex. The only thing you can really do is make sure they know how to protect themselves from making the wrong choices, and why not do it by sneaking it into all the games they're playing?
Because teaching teens about sex can be hard, especially if you're in a State that doesn't approve of sex education. However, having students play a game as an assignment or an excercise? Not only will your students learn something new, they'll also probably vote you for teacher of the year.
Awesome! I'm so glad you're interested. At the moment I can't take your $$ bills since Tap That is still under development. You can, however, join the mailing list and I'll let you know when it's out for download.
If you're in New York City on May 23/24, 2016, you can come check out the game demo at the Games for Change Festival.
