We took VR as the ideal medium to confront teens with the potential size of their sexual network, and the consequences of not practicing safe sex. Early prototypes were tested and improved, to lead to a final product. The VR EXperience has a teen start in bed where he or she sees contacts of their sexual network appear around them, filling up the room.
Interaction with the people in the room is possible by looking at them. This will trigger hearing their experiences and thoughts about their sexual encounters.
The big challenge was: "How do we know that it's the right the group of people?". The experience needed an onboarding mechanism that enabled teens to customize the their experience.
Our answer: let them have a chat conversation in VR. In this conversation, they talk to their loved one and answer some questions that form their results and advice. Based on this conversation, the size of the group, as well as gender, is influenced. After the VR part, customized advice is given to promote practicing safe sex.
