Now You Can Make Money Off Your Embarrassing Sex Stories. Yes, Really.

Embarrassing sex stories. As much as we’d like to pretend otherwise, we all have them. And since it’s impossible to erase them from existence, why not do the next best thing and put them to good use? The Phoenix, a company dedicated to enhancing men’s sexual health, is paying money in exchange for your embarrassing sex stories. Yes, really.
The campaign is part of an effort to discuss sexual health more openly and honestly. “Removing shame fosters conversation which leads to understanding — and this produces better outcomes for all of us.” Once we can laugh — and realize that we’re not the only ones in the world who have had a completely awkward experience in the bedroom — we can make strides towards healthier (and happier) sex lives.
Phoenix Chief Medical Officer Dr. Paul Thompson had this to say about the campaign:
Every day someone comes into my clinic almost overwhelmed by shame over issues that have ruined their lives. They are shocked when I tell them not only how common these problems are, but that we have REAL solutions which can quickly, affordably, and effectively solve their problems and give them back their lives.
Of course, there are a few conditions you need to meet in order to be eligible. You have to be at least 18 years of age, it has to be an authentic embarrassing sex story, and you have to be a U.S. citizen.
If you fit the bill, you could win $1,500 to get the conversation around sexual health started. Five (anonymous) winners will be selected, and only first names and last initials will be used when the stories are published online.
