So here’s a project that ought to be popular: the Kinsey Reporter.
Kinsey Reporter is a mobile app designed to report, visualize, and analyze anonymous data about sexual behavior. A joint project between the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction and the Center for Complex Networks and Systems Research, the app hopes to record and describe people’s sexual experiences worldwide.
The Reporter wants you to be honest, and report your true feelings and actions, so that the study gets accurate data. The staff behind the project have also gone to great lengths to protect your identity; for example, even if you have GPS turned on in your cell phone, the app only gets your approximate location, and it doesn’t provide your name to the database. Your connection is also encrypted.
If you’re not sure about reporting, you can always have a peek at how the data is actually used and displayed, by reviewing the Explore tab on the site here.
