Blush’s Kickstarter campaign begins today!!

We just launched the Kickstarter campaign for our newest game, Blush. Check it out!

The traditional “talk,” when parents talk to their kids about sex, can be intimidating, awkward, and is all too often avoided. Kids often dread asking the questions they have, and parents often feel they lack the tools and knowledge to address these questions when they are asked, or rely on the schools to address them.

However, kids who are shy about asking the people they love and trust the most the questions they have about sex are not any more likely to feel comfortable in a classroom full of their peers. The fear of being judged, or even just perceived as weird, can be paralyzing, and often the only way people feel safe discussing these issues is if the subject is brought up by someone or something else.

With 200 questions (and their answers!) this trivia game is the perfect tool to initiate important discussions about all aspects of sexuality. With subjects like reproduction, general health, gender identity, and sexual orientation, Blush aims to help parents and teachers approach the topic of sexual health with their teens and pre-teens, and to give kids the opportunity to ask the questions they have in an atmosphere of fun and comfort.

The rewards!

On top of the actual game, we offer a button with every physical reward!

We also offer two educational posters, one which discusses consent, and one which approaches the topic of how to know whether you’re ready to have sex, with some rewards (you will have the ability to choose which poster you want if your reward includes only one!)

Stretch goals

We have a few other ideas should our project fund beyond its initial goal!!

At 5000$ : we will add 50 new questions to the game, for a total of 250!

At 7500$: we will add two educational posters to the existing ones, plus a series of cards illustrating the existing sexual orientations and gender identities!

At 10,000$ we will add another 50 questions, for a total of 300!

Be in one of our videos!

How knowledgeable are you about human sexuality? Would you like to show off your knowledge, or maybe learn a little bit more? Or maybe just lend a helping hand in promoting Blush, our newest game by Jen Desmarais, which we will be launching later this year?
We will be filming a short session where we will be asking questions to anyone who would like to answer (and providing the correct answer afterwards, of course) in order to promote the Kickstarter campaign we will be starting in March.
So, if you’d like to participate, please come and see us this coming Friday the 12th of February, between the hours of 2:30 and 3:30 PM, at the main entrance of E building of Algonquin College!
We are looking forward to seeing all of you!
