QR-coded condoms? Yes, folks, they're here

It's like Foursquare for sex. Sort of.

In order to normalize and popularize responsible condom-wearing, Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest has kicked off a new "Where did you wear it?" campaign (Tagline: Safe sex happens. Find out where!") with the distribution of 55,000 condoms whose wrappers bear QR codes.

They're asking individuals to scan the codes with their smartphones, then add details online about the experience, including gender, partner's gender, age, relationship status, general location, why you used a condom, and how the sex was (from "Ah-maz-ing" to "Things can only improve from here.")

You don't have to have a QR-coded condom to check in. And according to the online interactive map, folks all across the U.S. have been participating, including those in our very own Colorado Springs.

Whos getting it on, where, locally
  • Who's getting it on, where, locally

One such couple in the Springs reports:

An under 20 guy and a girl whose relationship is just for fun and have already talked about safer sex and STDs used a condom in the bedroom to prevent an unplanned pregnancy. It was great— can’t wait for round 2.

Really, it's probably just a matter of time before a company like Sir Richard's Condoms jumps on this and starts giving away mayorships.
