Safe Sex Goes the Way of Social Media: Check In With Where You Just Used a Condom

Location-based web site encourages couples to tell the world when, where and how you practice safe sex. Is that good for you, baby?

Well, you could either file this story in the TMI department... or awesome youth outreach. For the generation so compelled to overshare every minute of their lives, Planned Parenthood presents, a location-based site that encourages folks of all ages to anonymously share their sexual encounter, Mad Lib style: Choose when, where, with whom and how good it was. Badabing! Badaboom! Up goes a blue dot on the map to represent your smash. The one catch? You gotta use a condom first. It’s safe sex gone social.

In honor of National Condom Week, Planned Parenthood is handing out condoms with a QR-code on the inside wrapper that’s scannable with a smartphone. So after you’ve done the deed (presumably), you can dish the details of your rubber-clad romp. Here’s a sample check-in:

An under 20 girl and a guy whose relationship is all about love, and have already talked about safer sex and STDs, used a condom in the bedroom to prevent an unplanned pregnancy. It was ah-maz-ing -- rainbows exploded and mountains trembled.

The message behind Planned Parenthood’s campaign is that hey, sex is going to happen, so any sex that’s safe sex should be shared. After all, condoms remain the most effective method of preventing unintended pregnancy, STDs and HIV. (Funny, you never hear Congress arguing over condoms...) Also on the sexy site is handy health info, proper condom usage tutorials and a search engine to find the nearest Planned Parenthood health center. If you’re curious as to what your neighbors are doing behind closed doors, you can search who's doing what by age, gender, orientation and state.

At first, the crotchety old lady in me was like, Whaaat? Keep that to yourself, sister! But there’s something almost refreshing to know that a young couple just south of my birthtown of Oak Harbor, Wash., is being open and honest about sex with each other -- while keeping their own bodies safe. So Planned Parenthood, a tip of the (jimmy) hat to you.
