Can you tell us your brand name and about it's incredible background and story?

Yoxly was conceived in Oxford, by three individuals with very different backgrounds, who just happened to live in the same block of flats. They met because of a leaky dishwasher – a happy accident – and although they started as neighbours, they soon became friends, before eventually becoming co-founders. They were:

-A medical doctor with a background in public health, and 20 years of
healthcare experience across 4 continents.
- A military historian and entrepreneur, with over a decade of operational and marketing
experience.
- A physical and theoretical chemist, who’d led international research teams
and patented particle accelerators.

Passionate about people, and solving the growing sexual health crisis, they put their complementary skill sets together and created Yoxly as a solution. In our name, the letters “ox” are a nod to Oxford, Yoxly’s birthplace. The “x” and “y” represent human sex chromosomes, as sexual health is a universal human
need.

  • What is your mission and motivation that guides your brand?

    Yoxly is on a mission to simplify, normalise, and destigmatise sexual health. Sexual health is a need all of us have, for most of our lives. Yet it continues to be shrouded in antiquated stigma and shame, further compounded by a lack of awareness and access barriers. Yoxly is here to change that.

    At its core, Yoxly is a people company. We exist to help individuals lead healthier, happier lives, and we’re motivated to do that in whatever way we can
    - by enhancing education, challenging toxic stereotypes, promoting inclusivity, embracing diversity, improving the availability of services, and supporting our community, as they make their needs known.

  • What sets your brand apart from competitors?

    Yoxly believes that sexual health is more than the
    mere absence of infection; it is a state of physical, mental, and social wellbeing. We focus solely on sexual health, as an authority in this space.
    We adopt a fresh and friendly approach, one that is contemporary and inclusive, not overly-clinical or alarmist, to simplify and destigmatise the subject.
    We remain committed to educating our enormous community of over 1 million followers, who’ve helped shape our offering from the start.

  • How does your brand plan to grow and evolve in the future?

    As we expand our service, Yoxly will become a complete and personalised ecosystem for all matters related to sexual wellness. In doing so, we will lower the cost, improve the quality, and democratise the access for everyone – to create a world in which sexual health never gets in the way of someone's happiness.

Pack is very neatly produced and instructions clear. The blood collection devices were pretty much useless though, I had to try various cutting instruments to get enough blood. One of the tests was inconclusive but after contacting Yoxly, they sent a replacement and that worked. It would have been helpful if they had stated that was an option upfront - they're underselling a very comprehensive, speedy service.

Used Yoxly recently for some tests I needed. It was a good experience - from ordering to results. Quick, efficient and well priced.

I made an error in ordering which was promptly, clearly and generously sorted out by this company.

Yoxly’s whole site is super easy to use, and it’s easy to select the right kit. The kit itself comes in totally discreet packaging. The kit comes with detailed instructions on how to do your samples, and everything is logged online so you can access results easily. Overall super pleased, quicker than getting an appointment with the clinic, and saved a journey too!
