The story behind the story
Shame-Free is a story inspired by a personal experience from a Chinese intern at Talk2U. Yuzhe had met a friend chatting online and then found out that this girl had been a victim of assault by her uncle when she was younger.
Due to her lack of knowledge on the topic and specifically about consent, she didn’t even let her understand that what was happening to her was wrong. Yuzhe created offline workshops at her school which provider teens with self defense classes in case they were faced with a similar situation.
During her internship, we set ourselves to the challenge of developing a similar experience that could scale. And with the help of Chinese sex education expert, composer and writer Wang Xiaobin, we made culturally adapted the story to 2 different languages.
Fun fact: The story was created using the oriental narrative structure Kishotenketsu and all human images presented on the chat were generated by AI.
