HappyPlayTime! A smart phone game that will appeal to tech nerds, developers, and women alike, the goal of the game is to teach people about female masturbation. Created by Tina Gong, designer and front end developer, the game aims to eliminate cultural stigma that blocks self-stimulation for cis-gendered women.

The game itself is not yet in Alpha mode (a gender play on Beta), but you can sign up to receive an invitation to play when it launches – hopefully soon! To keep up to date with the project, check out the blog. Fun with design, the webpage for the game showcases an adorable little pink dancing vulva that is at once outrageously cute and ridiculous, yet endearing and joyful.

One of the most visually accessible and social-friendly forms of information sharing is the Infographic. “The Secret Lives of Female Genitalia” infographic, designed by Tina, showcases statistics about female masturbation that led to the game’s development. Here are a few of the findings:

  • Feelings of guilt and shame are more prevalent among women ages 27-46
  • The age range where women masturbate the most is between 25-29
  • 20% of women masturbate before bedtime to help them fall asleep

For more information on female masturbation and orgasm, The Ultimate Guide to Orgasm for Women is a great place to begin. Early to Bed, Chicago’s feminist sex toy shop, often hosts workshops about female anatomy and orgasm, among other fabulous sexual health topics. Tip of the Iceberg by cartoonist Laura Szumowski is also a fun, playful, and informative resource about the clitoris and how it works.

Chicago local news tip: Early to Bed will be relocating from its 10+ year Edgewater storefront to the heart of Andersonville in July!
