What is SexHack?

We are organizing such a virtual hackathon for the first time ever in the world to discover innovative digital and hardware ideas for something as fundamental to human beings as sex. In the current crisis situation when people are socially and physically separated we need to look at this area from a different point of view. Our bodies, our feelings, our relationships… there's so much room for improvement! A diverse range of voices and ideas are urgently needed to find new and innovative ways to use technology to deliver sex education, products and services for sexual health and wellness, assault reporting and dating...

FAQ
Lisa
What is a hackathon?
Support:
A sprint-like event where participants team up and create solutions to real-life challenges in an intense period of time. Using creativity, technology and mentoring, the weekend results in prototypes, fresh new concepts and innovative usages of tech.
John:
What is an online/virtual hackathon?
Support:
In an online or virtual hackathon, all participants are remotely connected. Irrespective of their location, hackathon enthusiasts can participate and demonstrate their skills on an online hackathon platform using various tools.
Anna:
Who can participate?
Support:
We welcome people of all job descriptions, whether you're a designer, developer, marketer, entrepreneur, project manager, therapist or sexologist. Diverse groups often work incredibly well together to produce the best results. You must be at least 18 years old.
Liene:
How big are the teams?
Support:
We find that a team of three to five works best. It's large enough to have diverse skills, yet small enough to get to know your team members well in a short space of time.
Katja:
What if I sign-up alone or don't have a team?
Support:
Don't worry if you don't know anyone attending. Teams will be formed before hackathon and during hackathon. There will enough time to mingle and get to know other attendees and ideas.
Martin:
Is participation free of charge?
Support:
Yes participation is free of charge. To support SexHack community you will have an option to make a donation (10 EUR or more). Donations will go to Papardes zieds which is one of the biggest non-governmental organizations in Latvia, which for many years now successfully works on reproductive health and rights issues. In the case, you would like to participate, but can not afford to pay, please contact us.
