Want to take social media to the next level? Chances are you’ve probably never heard of “checking in” when you have sex, or more specifically when you and your partner are engaging in protected sex.
Now you can brag to the world you’ve just got laid by checking in to a new geo-location website with details of where, why, who you used a condom with, and how the “safe sex was”.
Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest (PPGNW) recently launched the site wheredidyouwearit.com and dispatched 55,000 condoms with QR codes, allowing users to scan the QR barcodes on the condom wrapper with their smartphone to report their location on the where it will show up on an interactive map that displays where all users have checked in at.
In honor of National Condom Week last month between Feb. 14 to Feb. 21, PPGNW had released tens of thousands of condoms to colleges and universities in Washington state, however the safe-sex campaign was well received and people have already checked in from 48 states and six continents, according to plannedparenthood.com.
Users can check in directly even if they don’t have a QR-coded condom, and they can also rate the quality of their “safe sex” experience on a five point scale, the best being “Ah-maz-ing- Rainbows exploded and mountains trembled” to the worst “Things can only improve from here” rating.
People curious of what other have been up to can filter the interactive map by gender, orientation, age, location and other categories. Every dot on the map represents a story of a couple who had checked in and reported that they’ve had safe sex.
For example here is a blurb of a couple who checked in in New York who had a great sexual experience:
“A 20 something girl and a guy whose relationship is non-existent and have already talked about safer sex and STDs used a condom at a party because no one wants an STD. It was ah-maz-ing – rainbows exploded and mountains trembled,” the post reads.
The new “Where Did You Wear It” website was launched to promote safe sex and to “normalize condom use by showing just how common and enjoyable using protection can be,” according to a PPGNW in a statement released last month.
“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, in a statement. “We hope the site promotes discussions within relationships about condoms and helps to remove perceived stigmas that some people may have about condom use.”
