In today’s society, you are probably obsessed with our social media profile, internet chatting with friends, and keeping people ‘in the know’ of our every move. But are you ready to check in while having sex?
A new site, launched by Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest (PPGNW), allows you to share where you’re doing it with simply a smartphone…and the right kind of condom.
In honor of National Condom Week last week, PPGNW recently distributed 55,000 condoms with embedded QR codes (scannable barcodes) to colleges, universities, and Planned Parenthood locations in Washington State. Users can scan the QR code on the condom wrapper with their smartphone and report their location to wheredidyouwearit.com. It’s “like Foursquare for people who don’t want a sexually transmitted infection,” said PPGNW. There is an interactive map that pinpoints the state and city where people are safely doing it. You can also go to the website and manually check in your location.
On the website, you can also rate the quality of your latest sexual escapade on a five-point scale from “Things can only improve from here” to “Ah-maz-ing, rainbows exploded and mountains trembled.”
In addition, the site offers filters that allow you to search through users by by gender, orientation, age, and location. That way, in case you are curious, you can see what your friends have been up to.
But amongst the pleasure check-in and the friend f**k finder, the real goal of “Where Did You Wear It” is, of course, to promote safe sex. By pin pointing sexual escapades nationwide, it attempts to normalize condom use by showing the commonness of their usage. “Condoms are an essential tool in preventing unintended pregnancy and stopping the spread of sexually transmitted infections including HIV,” said Nathan Engebretson, PPGNW’s new media coordinator.
So in addition to sharing what your boss just said and a picture of the dinner you made, tell the world where you are having sex and doing it safely at wheredidyouwearit.com
