Product Design Director
Company: For Goodness Sake / OMGYES.com
Posted on: May 13, 2022
What if you could use your superpowers of building breakthrough
product experiences to empower women? To increase confidence and
joy and decrease aloneness?
To end the multi-generational cycle of sexual shame, once and for
Sounds pretty lofty, right?
But the resource we've created measurably and significantly has
exactly those impacts.
Our flagship product is called OMGYES.com. We conduct research with
tens of thousands of women, ages 18-95, and distill their wisdom
about sex into a web experience. OMGYES gives people clarity about
what they like and makes them realize how normal it all is.
And this has wellness benefits far outside of the bedroom.
When we feel that some of what we want is dirty or broken or
shameful, it's like we're constantly holding a beach-ball under the
surface of a pool. It puts us off-balance. But when we realize what
we want is normal, and good, and worth pursuing, we're more likely
to trust and advocate for what we want. In our social lives, in
work or school, in our family lives. And this shift has numerous
other wellness effects our scientists are currently studying.
It's why the Australian government is purchasing OMGYES as part of
a pilot wellness program. It's why OMGYES has grown to have over
750K paid users in 12 languages. It's why Psychology Today called
OMGYES, "warm, wise, tasteful and fun," The Times of London called
it, "nothing less than the next wave of an unfinished sexual
revolution" and Emma Watson told Gloria Steinem on stage, "I wish
it had been around longer."
