Think like Bedpost, the online beta site that helps people track their sexual encounters. Each time you’ve had sex, simply log in and enter the key details. Users begin by creating a profile for their most recent partner and then enter details such as when it happened, how long it lasted, some descriptive tags and a star-based rating of the experience. The site then presents all the information in a map of activity for the month on the user’s dashboard. For a historical view, Bedpost tracks summary statistics including frequency, average rating, and totals for the month and year so far. ‘Solo sex’ tracking is also available.
As Bedpost notes in its privacy section, sexual data is potentially second only to financial information in its sensitivity. But will consumers be willing to trust a third party with that information—and will the benefits make any risk worthwhile? Time will tell. In the meantime, Bedpost is seeking donations as votes for the project’s long-term viability.
