Go Ahead and Add "More Hot Sex" to Your List of New Year's Resolutions

Bedsider -- the Online Birth Control Support Network Designed to Make Birth Control Easier -- Will Reward You for It

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - Dec 8, 2011) - Just in time for New Year's resolutions, Bedsider.org and DailyFeats have teamed up to launch an incentive program to motivate and reward women for living well, staying healthy, getting frisky, and using birth control.

The free Bedsider Insider program offers a series of inspiring feats -- positive, healthy actions -- that users can complete to earn DailyFeats points. Users then redeem those points for real rewards at local businesses, restaurants, drugstores, hotels, clothing stores, Starbucks, or online retailers like iTunes and Sephora.

Bedsider Insider feats fall into categories like Romance, Life and Laundry, Ob/Gyn and Health, Get Frisky, and Birth Control. Taking action can be as simple as booking an annual gynecological exam or using Bedsider's Free Birth Control Finder to see if you're eligible to save money on contraception. The actions can also be quite cheeky, ranging from initiating the first move to doing it with the lights on to expressing what you really like in bed.

"Many of us have goals pertaining to life, love, wellness, sexual health, and birth control, but making time to reach them and staying motivated can be a challenge," said Lawrence Swiader, Senior Director of Digital Media at The National Campaign to Prevent Teenage and Unplanned Pregnancy. "The Bedsider Insider program is our way of helping Bedsider users take action and stay on track. It's exciting to be able to reward people for being healthy in and out of the bedroom, and we hope people will have fun with it in 2012 and beyond."

It's Like a Ready-Made Resolution Maker for Birth Control
By motivating women to have fun, live well, and use birth control, Bedsider and DailyFeats have the potential to help reduce the 1.3 million unplanned pregnancies that occur in the U.S. every year.

To take part, users sign up for a free Bedsider account, browse the Bedsider Insider feats, and complete the ones they like best. When users are ready to exchange their points for rewards, they are linked to DailyFeats where they can select a reward, track their progress, or join the growing community at DailyFeats.com of people doing small but significant feats and making big change in their lives.

"We believe strongly that the way to solve big problems is one small step at a time," said Veer Gidwaney, CEO and Co-Founder of DailyFeats. "By working with Bedsider, we can help women take those steps toward building positive sexual health habits. We're inspired by the potential of Bedsider and the Bedsider Insider program to help prevent unplanned pregnancy -- and of course, to help couples have a little more fun."
