© Copyright 2015 by the Association for Computing Machinery, Inc. (ACM).We report on the design of Talk About Sex, a multiplayer mobile phone game designed for young people to facilitate and enable discussions around the subjects of sex, intimacy and relationships. We discuss how we used 'sex as a framing for design', combining concepts of consent, subtlety, intimacy and trust to develop a sensitive yet dynamic game design.
