Condom Tracking: Productive or Pointless?

If you've ever wanted to know where other people are having sex, your day has arrived. Planned Parenthood celebrated National Condom Week (the same week as Valentine's Day) by releasing 55,000 condoms with QR codes at colleges in Washington state, requesting that users scan the packages with their smartphones when they use the condoms.

The result is a "safe sex map," with pin points at each location where one of the condom packages was scanned. The pinpoints are, of course, anonymous, but users are able to attach comments to their pinpoint describing how the encounter went -- "rainbows exploded and mountains trembled." Anyone can view the map and comments at Where Did You Wear It, though we understand that not everyone would want to. (You know you want to.) The purpose is basically to promote safe sex, but the awkward safe sex map is a plus. Do you think this new condom-tracking feature is productive in promoting safe sex -- or is it kind of pointless?

    We don't need to track condoms! We need to track gun runners within our own government.

    Did you read the article. This is not the same type of tracking. This is so people can post where they had sex and physically track where people are USING condoms. They already have a lot number for reasons as you mention.

    That makes no sense whatsoever. If some dumbass wants to post to the world where all he/she has sex...go right ahead. I think it's grossly immature and horribly egotistical. Anyone wanting to participate should just grow up. but that's what kids do. Dumb things.

    Just keep being a slave to big brother.

    If people want to use this as an excuse to disclose even more intimate details about their lives, fine, but I don't see how it encourages anything other than maybe a little exhibitionism and voyeurism.

    Hey Notch, I love asking other guys if they've ever seen the serial number on a condom?
    When they say "they never have", I tell them they have to unroll it because it's on the very end of the condom. Ha ha ha ha.
  • wilsonmja 2012/03/02 15:35:11
    Hey that's my state. Actually I think it's pretty cool.
  • harry 2012/03/02 15:20:14
    This is good news for Rubber Factories. By using more rubbers this should help create Jobs. Its not the Rich so Called Job Creators that create jobs. Its hard working and screwing Middle Class working people that create jobs. They buy the Rubbers that keep people working hard in the Robber Making Industry. Also Viagra too. For without Hard workers Rubbers sales will decline.

    A great way for planned parenthood to spend money! 500 million to track condoms.... Priceless!

    500 million of taxpayers money. PP received 1 billion total. So 50% tax money... 50% contributions.
