Chloe Macintosh: Mom-of-two creates 'First Time Sex Starter Kit' with 16-yr-old son
A French entrepreneur created a 'First Time Sex Starter Kit' with her 16-year-old son to demystify sex for teenagers. Chloe Macintosh, who lives in London, came up with the idea of sex education app, called Kama, to provide guidance for all ages on different topics including foreplay and anal sex during the lockdown. The 'Sex Starter Kit' element came about organically when her eldest son, Felix, 16, was chatting about sex with his 19-year-old cousin, Jules.
In a trailer shared online promoting the "Starter Kit" for Kama app, Felix can be heard asking the sex coach: "Would you help her with take her clothes off?" or "Would you just take off your own and leave her do it?". In another clip, Felix asked: "If she says she's experiencing a bit of pain and you can feel there is a bit of resistance in the body, what should you do?". He also asked, "Where are the secret spots we aren't told about?." The "Starter kit" on the Kama app is designed to demystify sex for younger people, with descriptions in language which echoes the way teens speak. There are 20 different videos in the series, in which Felix sits down with a sex coach to ask all the questions he has about intimacy.

Chloe in an interview with HuffPost confessed that she hopes the app empowers youngsters to openly discuss sex and pleasure with their parents, siblings and peers. She further added how sex was "never" a topic in her own youth, and she wanted to encourage her sons to have healthy relationships in the future. The mother-of-two said she hoped it would fill a gap in the sex education widely taught in schools, with topics including dry humping and "how to use your penis inside." She also said that there are guides to foreplay, overcoming sexual anxiety and partaking in anal play.
Chloe began working on the app during the Covid-19 pandemic, while both of her sons, Felix and Elliot, 14, were at home. The mother-of-two confessed the topic of sex is unavoidable in their home, where there are "sex books everywhere" along with "toys and gadgets." Chloe explained, "After an initial period of resistance, Felix and Elliott started to become more used to the topic and speaking about it became more and more normal." As organic conversations began taking place, Chloe felt she was gaining more and more content for her app, recording different discussions for later use.
Chloe, who is also co-founder of Made.com, told HuffPost: "We never learn how to relate, to create intimacy, to listen, to touch. So the content we wanted to put out there is more than some tips to put a condom on, but more relating to the experience and making is as relaxed and comfortable as possible." Chloe also admitted that she received a lot of suggestions from her 16-year-old son's friends who asked her to include different topics such as what position to start with, and what to do when things go wrong.
Kama app's website says it offers "Mindful sex practices for all bodies, regardless of age, sexuality, or gender." The website further continues, "The Kama method is for anyone and everyone...Our unique approach combines body, mind, and heart in order to help us reconnect with ourselves and others. More than a method, Kama is a social movement aimed at transforming the conversation around sex and intimacy by building a community of sexual explorers."
