Sex Tech: Why I Get Tested!

July 2nd, 2013 by Sondra



Hello, Video Nerds!

This week, SexualHealth.com brings you its newest endeavor, the Why I Get Tested Project (WIGTP).  Created to encourage people to get tested for HIV and other STDs, WIGTP is a user-friendly, video-sharing project that collects testimonials from people about why they get tested and why this is good for our health.

Sex Educator Sunny Megatron and The STD Project helped launch the project by submitting its first two videos. Check them out here. The project also includes written testimonials:

“We want to eliminate the stigma around getting tested.”

“I get tested because I care about myself and my partners.”

You are invited to share your own stories via video or text, and have the option to upload a photo with your text testimonial, if you so choose.

Check out the project’s Facebook page and share with your friends! This is a fun way to get creative and technical about your status. Shout it loud!

And why do I get tested?

I get tested because I like to know my status and because I am a sex nerd.
