About this project

Passionly is the creation of married couple Tim Watson and Erica Grigg (see them below). Years into their loving, long-term relationship, Tim and Erica had a common problem. They were having boring, monotonous sex.

After a few internet searches and visits to the library, they found informational books and exciting new sex positions, but nothing seemed to solve the problem. One day during brunch in 2012, they asked themselves, “Why don’t we create the solution we wished we had?!”.

Along the journey, they reviewed, wrote and edited over 1,000 articles on all aspects of love, sex and communication as Co-founders of a media site called GetLusty for Couples.

With thought leadership from therapists and sexologists, the site helped thousands of couples. But readers wanted more, and Co-founders wanted to provide a more thorough solution. An app that could sustain and improve sexy marriages over time. (Hint: the Passionly app & book) 

Erica Grigg has over 10 years experience in marketing for positive change in the world. From consulting to organizations from United Nations to World Wildlife Fund, Erica has a passion for making the world an amazing place to be. Since 2010, she's been researching, editing and writing about sexy marriage. As co-founder of media site GetLusty for Couples, she helped thousands of couples have sexier marriages. She obtained her Masters from University College London.

Tim Watson got involved in the technology industry in the formative years of Microsoft in 1997. From project management to systems architecture to writing code and fixing bugs, Tim is a passionate technologist. As the Co-founder of GetLusty for Couples and currently Passionly, Tim has managed thousands of lines of code. He got his MBA from University of Washington and his BA from Seattle Pacific University.

Passionly is dedicated to improving the love and sex lives of couples who’ve been together for 3+ years (or decades). Built to both measure and enhance your sexy relationship, we are excited to offer comprehensive solutions to the biggest challenges facing married couples today.

Passionly uses scientifically-proven features inspired by the world’s most respected leaders in marriage therapy, counseling and sexology. Through our app and book, we'll explore how to transform your marriage in just 4 hours per week. We launched our web app recently to rave reviews. Check them out below!

There, you could complete the same actions as the mobile app. Spend more loving and sexy time together, flirt frequently and become an expert in essential tasks like disagreeing well.

But we want to offer an even smarter, more mobile-friendly product. That's why we're here. Our mobile app & book will make our product even more accessible to today's mobile-friendly couple. And our book will write on a topic not often discussed -- passion in marriage.

Learn more about the actions we help you do in the video above and the 'Mobile app' and 'The book' sections below.

Why we're unique:

  • We make implementing your sexy marriage super simple
  • In just 4 hours per week, have more intimate time with your spouse, flirt more and measure your success along the way with our Assessment feature
  • We offer advice from sexologists, therapists, counselors and experts in their fields.
  • We don't just focus on any one area of sex or love. We offer a comprehensive solution covering subjects like confidence, communication and sexual technique.
  • We're built by a busy couple for other busy couples!

Our mobile app is built on the foundational research and advice from our book. We took the theory and turned it into actions couples can complete in just 4 hours per week across devices couples use most.

How it works

The six actions the Passionly app makes super simple include:

  • Going on Love Dates
  • Having sexy, sensual and intimate Sex Dates
  • Learning basic and advanced skills of marriage from experts from Challenges
  • Flirting daily
  • Going on romantic Getaways
  • And measuring their success along the way with Passionly's unique Assessment and Dashboard tools

Our comprehensive, "Busy Couples Guide to Sexy Marriage," offers readers and subscribers the scientific foundation for keeping love thrilling, emotionally and sexually intimate.

The book starts off with what we call the 5 Pillars of an Amazing Sexual Relationship. These are subjects that guide what areas couples should care about most. These include: health (especially confidence), communication, sexual technique, dates and adventure.

We then go on to describe the research done and the recommendations for busy couples to implement into their relationship within 4 hours per week.

Questions we'll answer in our book include

  • How do I feel more comfortable and confident in my naked body?
  • How do we both feel extremely satisfied with the relationship?
  • How can we disagree without arguing?
  • What kind of fun, new activities can we try that make an immediate, positive impact on my relationship?

Meeting our total minimum goal will enable us to complete this phase of the project. However, our stretch goals will help us continue to improve our iPhone app, as well as launch an Android mobile app.

As soon as we reach 50% of our goal, we will also include a stretch goal above.

We want to thank you for getting this far down the page! Your voice matters to us. Do you want to change the face of marriage with us in our new book & mobile app?

Be a part of this project by becoming a Backer. Join us today and then share Passionly across your social channels to pass on the joy of love! Because every couple deserves to have a blissfully loving and passionate marriage.

Risks and challenges

Our biggest risks include slips of deadlines, budgetary constraints and actually delivering our mobile app and book combination. However, considering we're so far down the line, with our Kickstarter funds secured, this will be no problem whatsoever. We have experience managing projects just like this one--so we're extremely confident with our ability to deliver.
