A sex education game about female masturbation.

Look athappy-bubble this latest game that aims to make Female Masturbation Friendly. Happy is your friendly neighbourhood vulva and it’s your job to make her feel good! It’s great to see different ways to promote positive sex education and reduce stigma around female sexuality. I love that it portrays masturbation in a fun and non threatening way! This helps to normalise female masturbation and shows how self pleasuring can be fun and light hearted and doesn’t have to be a serious affair filled with guilt and shame.

HappyPlayTime is a sex education game whose aim is to eliminate the stigma around female masturbation. It’s a fun way to learn about the female sex organs! It’s designed to use on mobiles but you can also play it on your computer..
I loved the write up so I thought I’d share it here;

“Sexuality is one of the most basic instincts of human beings. Being comfortable with your own sexual pleasure is a prerequisite to both being able to healthily accept pleasure from others, and pleasing others. How can you exchange pleasure with someone else if you don’t understand what your own body likes? That’s why masturbation, and learning how to masturbate is such a fundamental life lesson.

Unfortunately for many women, there has been a cultural stigma that blocks access to self-stimulation. HappyPlayTime is here to eliminate this barrier as much as possible. By talking openly and lightheartedly about female masturbation, we are taking the first step to becoming truly sexually liberated.”

 

It was disappointing to discover that Apple refused to include the game on their app store because they said it was “excessively objectionable” and “crude.” I’m confused why Apple stocks games about dealing drugs and yet finds an educational game designed to reduce body stigma so unappealing. The vulva itself is very simplified in a cartoonish way.

Searah Deysach, owner of an American sex toy shop Early to Bed thinks the stigma about women’s genitals goes much deeper than just the cartoon animations.

I think vulva imagery and education about female masturbation are still so taboo in society mainly because folks are scared of women having sexual agency. Allowing women to love their vulvae and practice the radical art of self love could lead to better self esteem which could lead to women feeling they have the right to be in charge of their bodies. I cannot speak to what specifically happened with Happy Playtime, but I talk to women every freaking day who struggle with loving their bodies and I can see how that directly impacts their sexual lives and self esteem.
