"Dream as if you could live forever, Live as if you could die today."
I am currently an graduate student in NYU Integrated Digital Media. My passions are design, technology and art. I focus more on user experience design, and also design in augmented reality and virtual reality now. I believe technology is about people, only when people are involved could we build something useful and meaningful.
This is such an interesting research! I think the design behind how condoms are displayed, and how customers could purchase them really effects the willing people want to buy them. We think that the easiest way for protection is using condoms but neglect a lot of problems behind how to get ones. This reminds me the research my group made, we've interviewed some high school students, and they said they don't want to use the free condoms the health clinic provide, because they think those condoms quality are bad. However, the good condoms are also difficult for them to get, and they think those cost a little high. So I think it is really interesting to see the problems behind why a lot of young people rather risk themselves, but not using condoms when having sex.
Thanks for sharing this interview Cherisha. It is interesting to see different country's sexual and reproductive health and awareness problems. I think through better understanding the insights and contexts of this complicated issues, besides some cultural differences, we can see some similarities among the problems. For instance, lack of good and right educational contents is one problem for sex education, and the problem leads to more other issues depends on different places. I think social media is a good tool people should consider, and also the impacts of celebrities would be helpful for spreading the issue.
Thanks Alejandro. Yeah, I think implementing sex education into school is a good way for improving young people's knowledge and awareness, but like you said, the obstacles are many, and not very people could accept those open, new ideas. I think building on this kind of ideas, porn with sex-ed, and twisting it into something more people can accept might be a good approach.
