Lets Talk About Sex Biem Encourages Sexual Health Transparency

first_img UK Man Suffering ‘Worst-Ever’ Case of Super-GonorrhoeaReal Good You Guys: Nerdcore Hip-Hop Nothing kills the mood like asking your partner if they’ve been tested.But since you’re already swiping right, why not open biem: a new app that makes it easy to get tested for STDs and chat directly with a sexual healthcare professional.More than half of all people will have a sexually transmitted disease at some point, according to the American Sexual Health Association.And while most folks aren’t shy about publicizing a cold, flu, or the mumps, the stigma surrounding sexually transmitted infections is often enough to keep people from getting tested and disclosing their status.Enter biem (pronounced “beam”)—break in case of emergency—a digital healthcare platform on a mission to encourage sexual health transparency: “The idea that people should be open and honest about their sexual health, without fear of judgement.”To get started, download the free iOS app, sign up for an account, and answer some basic questions. Then you’ll be prompted to schedule a video visit with a sexual health care provider—a $45 service (during which you probably won’t have to flash your pixelated private parts).For the final step, users can choose to have a technician take samples in the comfort of your own home (another $45, billable to your insurance) or visit a nearby lab. Once processed, results will be delivered to the app in two to three days; it’s entirely up to you whether to share those details with friends, family, and hookups.Multiple biem users can digitally connect to receive notifications if one or more of their partners tests positive for any sexually transmitted disease in the next six months.“With the rise of new online dating apps, there is much concern about the possible rise of STDs,” the New York City-based startup wrote in a blog post.“With biem, users can be more proactive by getting tested, showing results, and being notified about potential STDs,” the company continued. “Now you have proof in your pocket.” Stay on targetlast_img read more
