Southeast Asia: Interactive Sex Education Website

Established in July 2010 in Singapore, the website sexxie.tv claims it is the world’s first and only sex education platform adopted by renowned doctors for interactive sex education globally.

S.E.X.X.I.E, which means Sex eXperts Interactive Education, is dedicated to the protection of the sexual health of teens and young adults. Unlike traditional sex education programs, sexxie.tv uses the online platform to reach its clients.

With incidences of teenage pregnancy, abortion, STI/STDs and sexual abuse on the rise globally, S.E.X.X.I.E hopes to supplement school-based and/or home-based sex education to empower teens and young adults to be more responsible for themselves and their actions.

When faced with sensitive sexual health issues, most teens and young adults consult their peers for advice. More often than not, peers are not equipped with the right skills and knowledge to address those problems. At times, parents too feel awkward discussing such matters with their children. The consequences can be very serious.

A non-judgmental and un-biased resource like S.E.X.X.I.E can provide teens, young adults, parents, educators, etc. with honest, accurate and holistic information.

The website features include Q&A segments, streaming videos, articles, online seminars or ‘webinars’, Twitter updates and Facebook posts. What are webinars?

They are virtual seminars that provide straightforward facts. No complex medical terminologies here. Simple and convenient. Register online and that’s it! All you need is your computer and internet access. At the end of each session, get the answers to your questions “live”; be able to discuss sensitive issues, i.e., sexually transmitted disease, premature ejaculation, and more

The presentations give insights and needed information with the sole purpose of sex education. Through SEXXIE online talks, teenagers, newlyweds or anyone will be more open to talk about their problems. Be it at home, office or café, one can easily join by registering for free to start learning from renowned doctors and specialists. Q&A sessions are conducted at the end of presentation. All webinars are moderated by our own Medical Butlers.

Its Facebook page carries this slogan: Sex Education for the People, by the People.

Make your voice heard. You can be a teacher, a troubled parent, a curious teenager, or a diligent student. You can be anyone. But we hope that with your stay with us you, too, can become SEXXIE— Liberated. Well-informed. Empowered. Responsible.

SEXXIE.TV believes that everyone deserves honest and accurate information. Whether it's about a small problem or about issues concerning sex and relationships, we strive to educate.

And because we believe that education is about confronting real problems with real solutions, we give you ways to share your thoughts. Learn from other people’s experiences. At SEXXIE.TV, we call it Interactive Education.

Dr. Love, the founder of sexxie.tv, reports that the website is getting positive feedback from internet users in many parts of the world

We get an aggregate between tens to hundreds and sometimes even thousands of email/sms/chats a day depending on the kind of activities available on the website.

The letters are mainly from Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and some from the Philippines.

The source of questions range from youth to married couples. Many questions are not anonymous.

We have partnerships in Indonesia, Singapore and will soon have partnership in Malaysia, India and China.

Occasionally we have 1 or 2 members of the public who would contact us to clarify our mission, but we managed to convert them into a fan after clarifying with them.

Dr. Wei also plans to expand the free services offered by the website. They will be soon launching virtual STD clinic and also a VR anatomy cybertour for schools.
