Welcome to the website of the project „Kompetenz in sexuellen Situationen“ (KisS; "Competence in sexual situations")

On this page, we would like to introduce our project  KisS, which was funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) from 2018 to 2022.

The KisS project was designed to strengthen young adults' competence in conducting their sexual relationships. Sexual competence involves the ability to evaluate sexual situations, to communicate one's wishes and limits in a clear fashion, and to recognize and respect the partner's wishes and limits, so that both can enjoy the sexual contact. To reach ths goal may not always be always easy,  which is why our project aimed at promoting sexual competence. Because young people may experience sexual contacts without their consent, this topic was also addressed in our project.
