IU re-releases sex reporting phone appMay 9, 2013
By The Associated Press
BLOOMINGTON — Indiana University researchers have rereleased a smartphone application that allows people to report their sexual behaviors after taking steps to protect users’ privacy.
IU said in a news release Wednesday that it has released the free Kinsey Reporter app. University attorneys had pulled the plug on it last September.
The app is used to answer surveys on topics ranging from public displays of affection to birth control and sexual violence. Data is available at www.kinseyreporter.org.
Informatics professor Filippo Menczer says the app developed for the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction was approved by a review board and vetted by technology and security advisers before it was rereleased.
Menczer says designers did make one change to address fears that reports from low-population areas might be recognizable.
