Discovery News reports that Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest has distributed 55,000 condoms around local colleges and universities that feature implanted QR codes, which track when and where people have sex.
The reported data is stored on a website called WhereDidYouWearIt.com, all in the name of public health, of course.
The way it works is each condom has a barcode which the user can scan with their Smartphone to upload their location as well as general details of their sexual experience (anonymously).
A rep for Planned Parenthood said: “Condoms are an essential tool in preventing unintended pregnancy and stopping the spread of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including HIV… We hope the site promotes discussions within relationships about condoms and helps to remove perceived stigmas that some people may have about condom use. Where Did You Wear It attempts to create some fun around making responsible decisions.”
