Video Game Teaches Teens About Sex

Tuesday, February 16, 2010 17:15 GMT

LONDON, Ontario (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Let’s talk about sex, baby – using a video game.

The Middlesex-London Health Unit in London, Ontario, is helping Canadian teens get the proper info on fornication through a video game called Adventures In Sex City.

Players can learn all about STIs, birth control, abstinence, and how to feel good about the size of their goods with the help of various characters like “Power Pap,” a sexually active heroine who believes in regular testing, the abstinence endorsing “Wonder Vag,” and “Captain Condom,” a half-man, half-prophylactic.

By answering questions on safe sex, players defeat the evil “Sperminator” who threatens to infect Sex City.

Spokesperson Shaya Dhinsa says reaching teens is a challenge, but this high-tech way may just work.

She adds, “We hope a lot of young people visit our site and get useful information about sexual health while playing the game.”
