Tracking Sexual Partners

There is a website out there that helps people keep track of the identity and number of their sex partners. There is an iPhone application that does the same thing.

The website, Nookist, claims to give users “the ability to assess [their] sexual behavior and to make changes” in their lives. Each user’s information is completely confident according to the site.

Nookist’s aim seems to be on keeping track of when its users have sex, and on determining if users are at risk for sexually transmissible infections. (The site refers to them as “sexually transmitted diseases,” a term that is no longer preferred since an infection is not necessarily a disease.)
