Planned Parenthood Debuts QR Code Condoms

Promoting safe sex by having people "check in" where they just had sex at
Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest (PPGNW) has come up with a new website, wheredidyouwearit.com, that allows people to "check in" where they just had sex at.
They are describing it as "Foursquare for people who don’t want a sexually transmitted infection." People check in by scanning one of the 55,000 QR Code condoms that they distributed last week, which also happened to be National Condom Week. The scans are then compiled on an interactive map where you can see all the safe sexers are. Results can also be filtered down to age and sexual orientation. People can also rate the sex that they just had with comments like "“Things can only improve from here” to “Ah-maz-ing."
So far people have checked in from 48 states and six continents. We look at the map ourselves. Evidently, people are either not using condoms or not having sex at all in North Dakota and Iowa.
“Condoms are an essential tool in preventing unintended pregnancy and stopping the spread of sexually transmitted infections including HIV,” says PPGNW via 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.”
