Planned Parenthood Issues Geolocating Condoms
February 29, 2012 - 3:37 pm
Talk about over-sharing. As part of a safe sex marketing campaign for National Condom Week — which exists, apparently — Planned Parenthood gave away 55,000 condoms with smartphone-ready QR codes to college students for online check-ins.
Users can also identify the erotic environs (“Bedroom,” “In the Shower,” “At a Party,” “Planes, Trains, and Automobiles,” etc.) and rate the sex on a five-point scale in real time, which their partners must appreciate. It’s a cute gimmick, but — considering that a quarter of people unroll condoms the wrong way, according to a new study — tagging yourself on Sex Foursquare is less important than not getting pregnant or infected.
How many of these will turn up tagged near Georgetown Law?
Classy, Planned Parenthood. Not.
Our tax dollars, in one way or another, fund this trash.
