A Jacksonville LGBTQ youth group recently posted photographs on its Instagram account of an adult card game called Dick Match, which features cards with pictures of various types of penises and scrotums.
The Jacksonville Area Sexual Minority Youth Network (JASMYN) provides services to youth as young as 13 in Northeast Florida. The group shared the photograph of the inappropriate entertainment earlier this week, but deleted the post after The Florida Standard requested comment.
However, that wasn’t the first time JASMYN had promoted the adult activity to the youth it serves. Back in June, similar photographs were posted along with the caption “SaturGayz at Jasmyn!! Come play board games with Zy and Christina!”
According to the JASMYN website, the SaturGayz event is a program for young people ages 13 to 24 that takes place twice a month on Saturdays, and is "a drop in space where youth can access a hot meal, showers, washer/dryers, HIV testing, computers, and hang out space."
The Florida Standard asked JASMYN if they required under 18s to be accompanied by an adult, as well as whether they asked for ID for those claiming to be over 18, but the youth center did not respond.
The card game is available on Amazon and is listed as appropriate for adults age 18 and over, and the illustrations of penises and scrotums are blurred in the photo gallery showing what is contained in the box.
Each of the penises and scrotums has a comical nickname, such as SLEDGEHAMMER, BIG TONY, HOMEWRECKER, SHAFT, and HOLE-IN-ONE. One card has a picture of two erect penises touching each other with the words EN GARDE.
According to The Florida Standard, JASMYN enjoys the support of Duval County Public Schools (DCPS) with public records showing that from July 2019 to September 2021, the youth center was the recipient of $180,000 from DCPS as part of a Division of Adolescent Sexual Health grant. DCPS also lists the JASMYN as a resource for students in its LGBTQ+ Support Guide.
The Post Millennial contacted JASMYN for comment but the center has yet to respond.
