In 2012, two longtime sex educators getting their master’s degrees at Columbia University had the idea to create an app in which users could anonymously ask anything—yes, anything—about sex, dating, and relationships. The kind of stuff you’re too nervous to ask a friend. Experts in their fields would personally and privately answer these questions, which could be about anything from HIV/AIDS to gender identity. And Okayso was born.

“People tell us that being able to ask questions anonymously allows them to say things they otherwise wouldn’t,” explains cofounder Elise Schuster. “They can really let out the stuff that’s the deepest down inside them. And that gives us the chance to help them see that they can move on.”
