Why the change?

The original icons were designed to be humorous, and some people reached out to us to say they liked the “guy in the tie” icon for protected sex.

The design journey

Katrin Friedmann, the Creative Director at Clue reflected on the design process.

Why track sex?

Tracking sex allows you to notice patterns in your sex drive in relation to your cycle. For example, around fertile days, you may experience greater sexual desire and motivation (1). In particular, if you’re planning for pregnancy, keeping track of your sexual activity will allow you to accurately identify potential dates of conception. Regardless of your choices, Clue can help you understand when you’re most likely to get pregnant. (However, Clue by itself should not be used to avoid pregnancy.)

How to track sex in Clue

“Sex” can refer to many different types of activities, including oral sex, masturbation, “penis in vagina”, anal sex and more. For you “protected” could mean protection against pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections (STIs) or both. The most important thing is to be consistent in the way you track.
