The card game focuses on sexual education, discourse and fun. In addition, the game addresses people who want to expand their sexual education and are interested in ways to face their insecurities and shamefulness. It is designed to appeal to people who have a strong sense of shame, because playing as a group allows them to distance themselves from the issues discussed and not to necessarily project issues onto themselves. The players learn through the exchange of opinions and experiences. The intention is to encourage adults to discuss and educate them at the same time.
Everybody is a winner at the end of the game. Through the intensive exchange one builds trust with their fellow players, you gain strength and knowledge. Try to answer the questions as honestly as possible to get as many opinions and have fun. Be aware that some questions may cause sadness or shame. Everyone is vulnerable. Be empathetic and listen to each other. The game help you to move away from shame. Don't judge each other for their response to questions. If he*she*it*them doesn't want to speak up, one can sits out the round.
The deck includes 40 cards with situations or issues that might be related to shame. These are divided into eight categories: Anatomy, Sexual Identity, Society, Pleasure Tools, Types of Relationships, Stimulus Needs, STDs & Preventive methods, Myths and Taboos . You will find an educational booklet that provides further supporting information to each of the playing card topics.
