You’ll never think of the phrase “bag it and tag it” the same way again: A program being rolled out by Planned Parenthood in the U.S.’s Pacific Northwest and in other countries by social marketing organization DKT International encourages people to log and map their sexual encounters via “GPS” condoms to promote safe sex.
The idea has been in full swing in Brazil for four years now: Users scan the QR codes stamped on Prudence brand condom wrappers and share the details of their steamy encounter on Brazil’s Condom Tester Program website. Each year, a randomly selected winner who has logged his or her randy activities scores a year’s worth of free condoms.
We ran one of the encounters through Google Translate and edited it for clarity and length. Is it getting hot in here, or is it just this woman’s story?
After two years my relationship came to an end; after one year we were still talking as friends and we decided to go to the cinema; while we were in the film as ”good” friends that nostalgia emerged… [After the film was over] in a pharmacy he chose Prudence Ice. [We] finally arrived at the motel and relations between [us were] the best, our night…was a real marathon, was our best f***.
Here in the U.S., the (anonymous) stories are a little bit more regulated: Log in to WhereDidYouWearIt.com, and you’ll get a series of pulldown options ranging from the seriousness of your relationship to how good the “safe sex” was — the best being “Ah-maz-ing” and the worst being “Things can only improve from here.” Such a positive message! One sample entry looks like this:
A 20 something guy and a girl whose relationship is all about love and have already talked about safer sex and STDs used a condom in a hot tub with another birth control method. It was fair — a work in progress.
Entries are posted on a colorful map. Hey, seeing as how checking in to restaurants and bars on Foursquare and Facebook quickly became all the rage, maybe broadcasting one’s safe sex choices will follow closely behind. We support anything that gets people talking about — and more importantly, using — condoms.
