I like the idea of Flirtmoji, but I’m not sold on the name yet.
Why did you decided to call them that, instead of something like "Sextmoji," for instance?
The deciding factor lies with the user, but we like to think we set them up for success by creating positive, inclusive iconography.
Accessing Flirtmoji is very different from accessing other types of emoji on a mobile device.
What we're doing sits differently for me, because we’re making this really comprehensive little visual language that represents everybody and everything. What’s really beautiful about sex, and emoji, is that sex is really playful and also really difficult. So to that end, I think that whatever it takes for you to be able to communicate what you want or need, or what you don’t want and don’t need is fine.

They’re simple, tame, and accessible icons that work wonders if you want convey basic emotions.But when it comes to sexting, they're pretty inadequate.I think sex is obvious, and we also wanted them to be available to people who aren’t having sex.You can be flirting, it doesn’t have to be about intercourse.
Anyone has to be able to look at them and not feel offended. But some people will probably find these offensive anyway. When you started the project, did you also look up other adult emoji or stickers to see if there was anyone else trying to do what you’re doing? We did a lot of research and tried to always stay connected, because we felt that what we were working on was so obvious and important that there’s no way that we’re the only ones doing this. People have put together bad collections, thoughtless collections, offensive collections...
