Sexual Advice Association Aims to Overcome the Communication Barriers Around Discussing Sexual Problems; 50% of People will Experience Sex-Related Problems in Their Life
The Sexual Advice Association, a UK charity focussed on improving sexual function and wellbeing, today announced the launch of a free smartphone app designed to allow people to ask the questions about their sex lives that they didn’t feel comfortable asking before. The SMART app provides an option for people to get expert advice to address their concerns about sexual problems, in their own time and in complete privacy.
Designed by health professionals for use by men and women anywhere in the world, the SMART app provides anonymous access to a range of validated tests and questionnaires to assess people’s concerns about their sexual health and provide information, guidance and sound advice. Completely secure, it covers issues such as lack of sex drive, erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation, and can be used by individuals, couples together or by one partner on behalf of another.
Sexual problems will affect around 50% of men and women in the UK at some point in their lives, and can be an early indicator of underlying health problems, but only about a quarter of people with a problem seek help from a health professional.
The SMART app:
- Contains comprehensive information and advice relating to a wide array of sexual issues affecting men, women and couples.
- Is PIN protected, so people can explore their sexual health concerns in complete privacy.
- Is completely private. All information entered into the app is anonymous, so personal data is fully protected.
- Can be downloaded for free and used across the world by anyone with an iOS or Android smartphone.
- Is available for download from the App Store and Google Play.
“The fact is that the British people are still not comfortable talking about sexual health. Not only does this have a negative impact on relationships, but sexual health issues like erectile dysfunction can also be indicators of underlying health issues like heart disease and diabetes. The SMART app gives people a new option for addressing their concerns privately and securely.”
